Name: Norman and Jesse Nelson Car: 1961 Austin Mini Countryman Location: California
Our collection of Minis keeps growing here in Shasta, California. Here’s our Austin estate woody wagon, an early car with the internal fuel tank. The original 850 engine has been upgraded to a 1275cc and we’ve gone for custom vinyl graphics in a Hawaiian theme. Up top there's a Regal roof rack and surf board, with a Tiki bar in the back and a high-end sound system installed. The Mini’s even appeared on stage with the Beach Boys and has won many major car show awards, including Kool April Nites in Redding, CA. Thanks to Franks Upholstery for the custom interior and Sign A Rama for the graphics.
A woody makes a great surf wagon.
With the Beach Boys!
