1.2mm on the floor and 1mm elsewhere or the equivalent 'gauge' which I think is 18 and 16. In repairs though some people like to use a thicker metal, but for the little that I do myself, I tend to stay with 1.2mm

Like Nick, my money's on it being a Mini and Moke World shell.
Take a look here (bottom of page) . Wheels are the same too.

Looking at the photos, i'd say you are right Nick. 

Thanks for solving that one.

Hi,

I was recently at the Mildura Airport and noticed this nice little Moke in a car park outside a hangar. I didn't get to meet the owner, but I did get a look at some nice toys inside the Hangar. :)

Was just finishing breakfast this morning and spotted a nice Yellow Californian Moke with a black roof slowly driving along the foreshore of Mooloolaba beach on the Sunshine Coast.
Couldn’t stand up and get my phone out quick enough for a pic, but I can guarantee there were smiles everywhere   8)

This image just appeared on Facebook, information indicated a parade prior to Oran Park (NSW) race meeting in 1978.
Do we know anyone that participated in that parade.
I most likely went to the Oran Park meeting, but was into Mini's back then not Mokes.

It's more interesting if you attach the photo Moe  :D
