Mechanical Services Mini Jiffy flatbed pick-up 1983
2018 British Autojumble - Waalwijk (NL)

This is the unusual combination of the engine and drivetrain from a Mini (including steering, suspension and interior) and a custom made chassis to create a kit car truck which you could build yourself. The design was by Richard Oakes, better known for designing the Nova and Midas sports cars. It was offered by Mechanical Services, later renamed into Indespension, from Bolton in the UK, whose main activity was manufacturing trailers.
The Jiffy could be had in various versions, ranging from a pick-up to a hydraulic tipper. Only around 70 were sold during the 1980s.
