Following the Mini saloon's introduction in August 1959, the van version of BMC's revolutionary small car arrived in January 1960, followed by the pickup in 1961. Built on a longer wheelbase than the saloon, the commercial Mini's front-wheel drive and compact independent rear suspension enabled it to match many more-expensive medium-sized vans for interior space. Identical - apart from the badging - Austin and Morris versions were built for the first nine years, the models being known subsequently as the Mini Van and Mini Pick-up. The latter shared the van's floor pan and mechanical specification, differing only by virtue of its closed-in cab and open rear load platform. A 998cc engine had become available in 1967 but most customers opted for the more economical 848cc unit. Always more Spartanly equipped than their saloon cousins - the front passenger seat was an option to begin with - the van and pick-up retained the Mk1 Mini's front grille, door bins, sliding windows, and external door hinges to the end of production in 1983.
