What Moke parts differ between earlier and later models?
« on: November 30, 2005, 12:21:43 AM »
I believe someone mentioned that the bow rails (roof torneau support) on later model mokes are different to the earlier ones. I have half a dozen or so here that I am sorting out just want to make sure i put asside the right ones for the right resto projects. Any info or pics would be nice  :D

Whilst I am at it is there any other items that changed that i should be aware of so as i dont part with the wrong items?. I am aware of the windscreen surrounds and grills and obvious differences.

Hmm where to start?, There are actually heaps of little details that differed over the years. Here's a few major ones;
Spare tyre holder
fuel tank and filler cap
seats
dashboard console and surrounding sheetmetal
heater and pipes
bumpers
Steering column and switches
'roll' bar
gear change rods
...

I wouldn't throw anything out until you're sure!

Driving a Moke with a hardtop is like having a shower in a raincoat.

Spottlights,

The main difference between the rear hood bows relate to where it mounts.

Up the late 70's the rear bow has a 'dog leg' below the hinge to allow it to mount to inner side of the rear guard. In later models the mount point was moved to the outer edge and the 'dog leg' was removed.

The spare wheel on the later Mokes is a large metal bracket with four bolt holes to attach it to the body. Earlier Mokes have a simple 'S Bolt' with a thread at each end and secured into the rear panel through a circular reinforced section that looks a little like a donut from the inside.

Grills are all the same.

As Tainted signs off with, If in doubt ask :-)

Thanks guys,
I have several small mouintains of parts I need to sort out and store or sell. Just wanted to make sure I was keeping the right ones.

I currently have 8 mokes which i need to limit down to 4. 2 x 1980 gal body, 1 x 6 wheeler and my ex Military Moke.
