The Mini Moke is a vehicle based on the Mini and designed for the British Motor Corporation (BMC) by Sir Alec Issigonis. The name comes from 'Mini'- the car with which the Moke shares many parts - and 'Moke', which is an archaic dialect term for donkey. The initial design was a prototype for a light military vehicle in the style of the American Jeep, but its small wheels and low ground clearance made it impractical as an off-road vehicle. It was subsequently offered in a civilian version as a low-cost, easily maintained utility vehicle. The Moke finally achieved success as a beach buggy, becoming a popular 'cult' vehicle in the Seychelles, Australia, the United States and many tropical resorts in the Caribbean. Now equally collectable as the Willys Jeep and Land Rover, a Moke offers fun in abundance whether popping to the shops or a trip along a coastal road in the sun.

This striking looking example is presented in blue with leather seats, it has a black hood with side screens making it weatherproof for those inclement British summers we occasionally have! This fun runabout was subject to a full nut and bolt restoration by Thunder Road Cars at a cost of £13,000. With an engine that starts on the button, this Moke is described as driving with no known faults. Supplied with a V5C registration document, together with a full years' MoT test certificate and a history folder this is a very useable and practical classic.The health and safety of both our customers and team remains the utmost priority, we are therefore operating to COVID-19 guidelines throughout viewing and auction day.
