Mini 18 for sale

Brian (tuna_641@hotmail.com) is selling this very clean looking Mini 18 VW Beetle pickup conversion. It’s a very rare kit, and I suspect there are less than a dozen of them on the road (and not many more ever made). Brian’s has the original paint (does that matter in a kit?) and he says it runs and drives great. Appropriately it has an 8-track player and a vintage CB radio. Up until recently this car was a daily driver.

It’s on a ’73 Super Beetle chassis, with many new parts (including carb, gas tank, distributer, plugs, plug wires, air cleaner, voltage regulator, belt, master cylinder, wheel cylinders, seat covers, and carpet). Truck is located in St. Ansgar, Iowa.

    Amazing!! we have #10 of the kits (number under hood) but ours is yellow with the camper top also, all original except for the bull dog from Mack we attached to the hood. Haven’t seen another one til now. We even have all the literature, the books, order forms and the diagram you use for the cut outs. Congrats! We got our in Savanah, Il about 13 years ago and the guy didn’t realize what he had. Good luck in the future. Take care.

    I’ve got one of these Mini 18′s and I’m restoring it right now back to it’s former glory. Can any of you guys give me any info on the kit? I can’t find much on it anywhere, but I do have some of the original paperwork from when it was purchased from Elite Enterprises. Thanks and any info that I may have on these kits you could use I will gladly share
