But more recently I came across an advertisement from the company for another Mini based vehicle they offered for sale in 1970. It was called the Mod and the ad said: "Don't buggy about - get a Mod. The practical Mini fun kit" It was said to feature a two-way folding screen and a loading ramp tail board, so I guess you use it to easily load your lawn mawer/jet ski/refrigerator and drive it from a to b with the wind screen down. Now, that's practical! Anyone attracted to the boxy shaped buggy-sort-of work horse that the ad showed in a child-like drawing was asked to write to Houghton Coldwell for full details. I would love to find out more about those. And did they ever come to actually produce the Mod? Now that would be even better.
More practical then the Biota - this is the Mod. Were there any produced?
Or how about this? A Biota Deluxe Camper available in 'Tangerine' and 'Tourqoise'
