Body number ??
« on: November 02, 2020, 01:30:00 AM »
Hi,

Hoping someone can help identify my Moke.

I bought it without compliance plate or any obvious chassis or body numbers.

I've recently stripped the layers of paint to bare metal and found three numbers stamped on the passenger side of the firewall.

1750
18
1249

They are the only numbers I've found on what appears to be an early 13" wheeler.

Hi,

Is there any number on the radiator shroud or on the front edge of the cross member under the drivers seat?

I have updated your profile so you can post up some photos that might help as well.

The numbers you have shown don't show anything useful.

I would suggest that the "18" number would suggest this is a vehicle which the build number commenced with 018, build date from Jan 73 to April 78. Look forward to further details.
