If this 1974 Mini Moke doesn’t make you smile you’re probably dead. Which is also the most likely reason why the model didn’t take British military contracts away from Land Rover like it had been designed to. Automotive design genius and father of the Austin Mini, Alec Issigonis always intended to use many of the Mini’s components in a rugged, lightweight military vehicle to increase company sales. But the resulting Moke was better suited to tours of resort towns than tours of duty. Thank goodness. This particular 1974 Moke looks well suited for beach runs with waterproof seats and floors and fantastic overall condition. The red paint appears to be in excellent condition and photos of the chassis show a very well restored and maintained Moke. The Minilite-style wheels are an excellent touch and we hope they are an indication of Cooper-esque modifications throughout. For anyone who’s thought about buying a golf cart but wished they were as fast as a Mini Cooper, your ride awaits. Find the Moke for sale here on dealer Wire Wheel’s website for $15,900.
