Moke taking shape

Covers, etcWell, it has been quite a while since I posted anything here. Lots of progress has been made. Many pictures available on my flickr account:

Now March 18, 2014 and the top (hood for you Brits) hoops are painted in Old English White, as well as the pannier covers and some other bits.

Just scanned in a bunch, here ya go – just for the fun of it!

Yes, I know there are some duplicates – enjoy!

And so, the restoration begins

The first step is laying out everything, checking if there is in fact everything, cleaning, then rebuilding as needed and finally reassembly. Easy, right. Be done in a week. Sure.

So, I did find the head, which was thought to be missing, and the speedometer with wiring harness and body shell ID plates. No key. Oh, well. On to other things.


Wish the house was done, then I’d buy my friend Kemper’s partially restored Moke.

One of these fine days, there will be a Moke in my garage!

I want one. These are Mini variants, and one model I never owned, so, it’s time. Would be perfect for tooling around St. James Plantation, North Carolina. A nice 1293 S motor, and I’ll be heading to the race track on the weekends! It’s a bit of a dilema when and which moke to acquire. Do I want a pristine, newer moke that needs nothing, for more money, or a nice “driver” moke that may need some cosmetic work? Where do I keep it before moving to North Carolina? Hmmmmmmm…….things to think about.
