Is a Bumperless Moke legal?
« on: May 16, 2008, 12:00:19 AM »
Gday from another Taswegian (New member)
I recently acquired a 1972 moke as my traveling toolbox.
It has been refurbished throughout (not a mint restoration of an original).
My moke has no bumpers, and I have been told that it never had them, is there such a 'bumperless' model?
This car has the rear mounted tank, 998 cc engine, 13" wheels. I have no idea what is original.
cheers
Cheers M

Yes all Mokes had bumpers its a legal requirement. If you have a rear mounted fuel tank then you more than likely have an export Moke, Tasmania must be full of export Mokes. If it is an export than it should have a 1275 Motor so the 998 is obviously a swap over. It should have the straight front bar which has mounts that go through the front panel that bolt to the front subframe and a steel tube straight bar as the actual bar itself. Rear bar is the same straight steel tube.
