Morris Mini “Plum Mini”-1960
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.
