The one in New Port Richey with the loose Webasto roof?
If so it sold as the new owner posted on FB someone asked him if it was the one with a non pick up vin number.

I think the load bed floor Hotel mentioned was about my old Truck.....not the one you're asking about.

affuis24..   if you want a pick up.. SIGHT INSPECTION  is a MUST..  due the  rust  in most of them.. as they for the most parts were used as work trucks..  and had the $hit beat out the them..   btw..  do NOT buy from  a broker..  either.   A club member is best.later bc

Yes, it was sold on again to a neighboring state a year or so ago. Hs a 1275 engine in it now. I think the black back light buckets from your Pup are the ones I now have on mine.

I recently found a new home for this blue Mini pickup in Florida.

(Small world. I had previously imported it and sold it in 2001.)
Dion Jardine (DJ Minis) did a great job performing all the "wake-up" service it needed after it had sat for a number of years.
It's in Denver now, so we may see it at Mini Meet this year.

I also found a new home for this project pickup that was in Illinois. 
(And thanks to Hugh Cannon for transporting it!) 
https://www.miniguy.com/vehicles/pickup66morris/
(Small world. Ironically, the seller had contacted me 10 years ago about finding a new home for it but decided to keep it.)
He contacted me again last year - and it in was in the exact same condition.

For a red pickup I was recently offered, I found a new home for it - before it even made it on the public side of my website. (For pickups, that's what often happens.) It was in Southern California. I'm chasing a few leads on some other pickups.

A few years ago, I found a new home for this red Mini pickup - powered by a small block Chevy!
https://www.miniguy.com/vehicles/v8pickup/
Small world. I have photos of it on Al Frost's gooseneck trailer. (It was parked on it just for photos at a Mini Meet in Southern California. Those photos are shown in the listing on my site.)
That owner contacted me a few years after the Mini Meet to help find a new home for it. I found one in Northern California.

For more that have gone to new homes, go to this "Consignment - For Sale by Owner"page on my website.
Put "pickup" in the Search Box.

Yes, we're definitely looking for Mini pickups, anywhere from project to pristine.

Tips, leads and links greatly appreciated!
@ Miniguy. If you are able to send me contact info for the blue pickup owner that would be great. I'd like to send them MOTR and Mini Meet East West info. Delighted to hear of another pickup in Denver - we just lost one. If you can't give me that info, can you send my contact info to the buyer?

That's about the going price...
I'd be concerned with what's under that load bed surface.  The old ad shows signs of needing lower door skins.
Nice that it has disc brakes already.....

Also, not sure if you are a Mini guy or not. Make sure you can live with the 850 engine or budget for upgrading it as part of your planning.

For certain uses the 850 is fine, for others it is not.

Well he is down to $22k now.

Just from looking at the pictures i would not pay that kind of money for that pick up there are a lot better ones than that one out there for the same money or less.

That being said the market is stronger in Ca and it is his truck and he can advertise and sell it for whatever he wants and whatever someone is willing to pay.

Must have been someone else. Not meaning to accuse you of anything.

And No, I made no offers. I can't afford to spend that kind of money on a car, whether it be collectible or not. I'm not at the diaper stage* of car ownership
