Pick Up is a Mini Marvel

A 1961 Mini pick up sold for a massive £14,000 in the Charterhouse classic vehicle auction on Sunday 3rd November.

“We have had some huge success selling Mini’s over the past few years, having sold a garage stored non-running Mini Cooper for a client in Leicester at £29,000, and a modified Mini van for £13,000.” Commented Matthew Whitney. “So now we have sold the pick up for £14,000 it completes the trio of Mini body style produced!”

The Mini pick up sold by Charterhouse has spent all of its life in one Dorset family ownership. Having covered just 27,000 miles from new, it was laid up in a barn for many years until pulled out when it was treated to a new re-spray along with re-commissioning work. At the Charterhouse auction there was a bidding war between a buyer in the room against a live internet bidder. 

This auction of classic cars, motorcycles and automobilia pushed the year total for this Charterhouse specialist department to just under £1,500,000 confirming their place as the leading firm of auctioneers who sell classic cars, motorcycles and automobilia.

Charterhouse is now accepting entries into their first classic car auction of 2014 in February. If you have a vehicle or motorcycle you would like to enter into the sale, please contact Matthew Whitney, Associate Partner at Charterhouse, The Long Street Salerooms, Sherborne, Dorset 01935 812277 or via email on
