For sure the Mini Moke is the coolest Mini Version. I've a friend who has owned his 1966 (D reg) Austin Mini Moke since 1967. It has never been welded and has been at 18 family and friends weddings. I've did all the work on it since 1977. It ran a 1098cc engine until very recently and is now fitted with a more powerful plant. Mark F has that 1098cc engine now for his Moke :lol:

And I'm looking forward to getting it fitted before the summer.

My first Moke had an Alexander 7 port fitted to a 1300 & it was SCARILY fast.

I'll be very happy with a standard 1100 with a decent final drive.

My kids headed straight to the Moke, ignoring the Ascari next to it.

This is so true. You always get noticed in a Moke.

Here's my pic from San Tropez. You can just see the back end of the Ascari next to it
