|OK, now we are talking tatty Moke. This Moke has, as far a as we know,
lived most of its life in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe. There has it been "restored"
and as you can see from the pics, they have very skilled metal workers
down there. They have produced their own sides and the same goes for the
floor. Hood frame, petrol tank, engine, front windscreen and all electrical
parts are missing. The car was imported to Sweden in 1991 by a couple who
had been working down there with some kind of SIDA financed help organization.
When they decided to move back to Sweden they brought two Mokes, got them
through the customs and preregistred them in the swedish car register.
We bought the car and our main goal right now is getting it back on the road as a funny car to drive on spare time. And on coming trips to major Mini events we are going to look for parts for an eventual future restoration.

Could this be our Moke ?
