Name: Paul Allen Car: 1980 Mini Pick-Up Location: Bedfordshire
Paul has a comprehensive Mini CV, having previously owned four saloons, a van and even a Banham Frogeye Sprint. His latest challenge is this Pick-up, which was registered a week before he was born and bought in September 2015. The previous owner had fitted Sportpack wheels and arches, plus a wild 1310 engine, but feeling a little old to be a boy racer, Paul decided to restore it to as close to original as possible. A full replacement floor, inner wings, rear load floor, left-hand full body side, right-hand part body side, front end and rear valences, plus a standard 998cc engine have been installed. Except the paint, all the work has been carried out by Paul himself in a small timber garage and later on a shipping container! He hopes to have it on the road before Christmas.
