Yeah, you know you want to own this Mini Shorty

This bright orange mini Mini is up for auction. Cute!

Desperate for your car to stand out from the crowd? Once that meant following the old adage ‘bigger is better’ but every human and their pet on earth is now driving an SUV, so it’s time to think outside the box.

Or perhaps that should be inside a teeny tiny box. Yep, you’ll be wanting this brilliantly bright-orange Mini Shorty. There have been tonnes of Mini Shorty conversions over the years (the original just wasn’t small enough for some) but most of those are convertibles. This is a much rarer hard-top ‘saloon’ that began life as a beige Morris Mini 1000.

It’s unclear when it was chopped up to make this little orange shoe, but we do know that it has just undergone a full body restoration and respray. Oh, and it’s now up for sale over on Car & Classic. At the time of writing the bidding is up to £2,700 with over six days left.

What do we think, Internet?
