Body mods are extensive, with a lengthened cab, suicide doors, one-piece windscreen, deleted quarter vent windows, flush-fitting door handles and much more.Inside is a late-model Mini dashboard, SAAS buckets and a brace of Autometer instruments.
The car was built by Tasmanian Ricky Absolom, who has some serious runs on the board when it comes to building Pro Touring-style cars. He sold the car unfinished-but-engineered to the current owner, who got the car registered and on the road. There are still lots of bodywork to be done and other details to really finish the car off, but in terms of getting such a highly-modified car built and engineered, the hard yards are done.
The seller confirms that the ute is Tassie-legal as it sits, with the exception of the Big 'n' Ugly injector hat - which can be removed and replaced with a smaller scoop for street use. Check it out on TradeUniqueCars.
