Hi,

it might not be electric but it is one of the Chinese Mokes and probably comes from Bill in North Carolina who was selling them a few years ago and had a nice pretty blue one in all his adverts. It would be no older than 2005. The Austin badge looks to be a Seat Belt compliance badge, but someone that know more about what  UK badge should look like can tell you more.

5 speed manual is probably counting the reverse gear and the position of the gear stick suggest the gearbox at least is from a Mini which has it mounted further back than a Moke.

If you want to learn more about how to spot them then have a read of this, https://www.moke.com.au/about/identifying-mokes/528-identifying-chinese-moke-body

Unless it is close enough to go and look at it, I wouldn't be thinking about buying it just on the photos and the sellers dubious claims.

I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.

Thanks Terry, I really appreciate your input. I’ve heard enough about Bill that I’m very hesitant to do business with him.
