With a cult being defined as a relatively small group of people having beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange, it is easy to say that the Austin Mini devotees can be classified as such. While not everyone can understand the lust for these minuscule machines, it can be objectively stated that this 1972 Austin Mini Pickup coming up at auction is a worthy idol for the clique of cool.

Being offered without reserve during RM Sotheby’s The Elkhart Collection on May 1-2, 2020, this lightly modified example is accompanied by a BMIHT certificate, detailing the complete history of the unit. At just 11 ft. long and tipping the scales at a 1,500 lb. curb weight, all it takes is a 1,275 cc four-cylinder fueled by dual SU carburetors to pump 69 bhp and 77 pound-feet of torque to the 12” tires. The interior recently received fresh carpet, an updated stereo, and Mountney steering wheel, while the exterior collected Talbot-style mirrors and sleek solid wood planks for the cargo bed. With under 60,000 units ever produced, this unique little truck will be sure to get looks anywhere it goes.
