Tiny pickup trucks?

Can anyone think of any old factory built mini or micro pickup trucks?
I know that Morris had the Minor pickup and delivery van. I've seen Austin/Morris Mini pickups.

Those are the only tiny odd-ball trucks I can think of...
Years ago there was a Morris Minor pickup that sat by the road for the longest time. It looked rough, even from the road. Would've been neat to have, though.

There's a picture of that pickup Mini on their site. Pretty neat little truck (I guess it qualifies as a truck ).

I think I remember seeing a VW beetle with a bed on the back. It looked about like a Kawasaki Mule or John Deer gator bed- since the engine was under it. Interesting, nonetheless.

tiny pickup trucks

I was stationed in southern japan in the late 60's. I had a Cony pickup.It had a flat two cylinder engine under the seat,with a 4 speed trans.It was sort of a little cabover. The bedsides folded down to make a flatbed.I saw one for sale in the auto trader a couple of years ago. I never thought I would see one in the US.

Mini Moke and Austin 1800 Utes

There's also the Austin 1800 Ute:



and the Mini Moke, I'm not sure if the Mini Moke came as a Ute from the factory.. but I've seen a few around..



Cheers, Dunc.

There was VW Rabbit P/U, and a Subaru Brat P/U. Both were what I would classify as mini.

Oh man- those Cony rides are awesome. If you lived in a tight packed city- where you never had to drive very fast (or didn't have big honkin suvs running you over) those would be perfect

I just got a 80 Spitfire. Hmmm... Maybe I can turn it into a little pickup. Hey, it's actually got a full frame (if you wanna call it that), so it would be decent start.

Somebody draw up some plans for me
