This is a custom-designed Mini built on a stock Mini drive train.  As you can see, the car has been cut in half.  The back seat was removed and approximately 2 feet has been cut out of the body.  They are referred to as “Mini Mini” or “Shorty Mini.”  A few are known to exist in the U.S. and Europe.  This custom job was done by a man in Alaska.  He  then gave the car to his nephew in Oregon.  Its third home is Tennessee.
