Ashley's Minor sounds like a real handful! Apparently it started life as a (rare) Austin badged van but the guy who built it basically junked the roof and the rest of the bodywork from the doors backwards. So, now it's a roadster pickup.
Powered by a 3.5 litre Rover V8, and running and extremely low 2.5" off the ground, the bodywork was scratchbuilt from the doors back to create a smoothside pick-up bed. A pair of Traveller rear wings cover the rear wheels, which themselves sport tyres that belong on a dragster! Rear tyre size is (for a Morrie) a whopping great 255/45/15. The independent rear suspension is from a Jaguar. Ahhh, quality parts for quality cars!
