Barn find condition, four (inc. me) user owners from new.
Built in UK at the BMC plant. A rare all original Moke, with official heritage certificate.
Original factory paint. Original factory subframes, front and rear. Original matching number engine and gearbox since new. Original timing chain, no rattle. The car is as it left the factory in 1965, except for two ali weather strips.
Single windscreen wiper, as all early cars, having NOT been converted for a passenger wiper. Knobbly front tyres, as original cars. Floor mounted dip switch.
First user owner unknown. Second user owner Bosie Vine-Miller, film director. Third user owner TV film director Alastair Reid of Inspector Morse. I bought the car in 2014 from a dealer who bought from Reid's estate after his death in 2011. For some 15 years it had been stored in a barn and not driven.
Engine runs and car drives perfectly. The 26,000 mileage cannot be qualified, but logic dictates it is correct. The car is roadworthy and ready for daily use. Hood, and side screens - patina.
This car is not recommended for restoration. It is unique for all its UK (not Portugal or Australia) factory built originality. Most Mokes have been destroyed with new bodies, sub frames, wrong engines and made to look like deckchairs, but this little gem should remain original, and for car shows whenever possible.
Facetime as I walk around the car, if that helps, before viewing. Also many more pictures available.
