Mini Cooper Ratrod pickup
I always liked the Mini pickups, and with this one I decided to try the ratrod approach. The lexan Mini pickup bodies have been out of production for a while, so I started with a HPI coupe body and cut the rear roof section off. The chassis consists of the front section from a Tamiya M05 chassis for front wheel drive. To get the slicks under the body I made the rear section as narrow as possible. I used the 3racing rear 0 hubs and cut down the 3racing axles. I also made the front & rear shocks and lower control arms and wheels.
