On tonight episode of Back Roads they are in Clunes and the his a moke in the background shot of Main Street, it is Sahara beige colour, got a screen shot.



Moe,

I met that Moke about 10 years ago at a Truck Show at Clunes. It belongs to a local winery and they have owned it since new. I went looking for some pictures of it but haven't found them yet. There are two other Mokes in Clunes, including a blue one that parks next to the old Garage used in the original Mad Max film.

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

Hi,

Not a real spot however noticed on Facebook. Moke/truck was built by father of John Kipling from South Australia. Apparently was originally yellow. John was an original competitor in the 1979 Repco Around Australia Trial and did the trip again last year in the 40th Anniversary that Greg and I also completed.

Spotted on a Channel 9 Rush show called Million Dollar Car Hunters- which was auctioning rare vehicles in Europe and Pebble Beach. A white Moke appeared in camera which was in the Monaco Auction part of the show. I doubt that the Moke was in the million dollar bracket!!
The Moke appears to be a Greek registered Moke looking at its number plate.

The 12" wheels and flat back would make it a Cagiva Moke

Was watching the Shannon's "End Of An Era" series this morning and they began talking about British Leyland in Australia by introducing the Moke: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrc5sfj5XN4&t=1362

Was watching a clip on Speedcafe regarding Kelly Racing setting up in their Queensland isolation camp in 222 Offshore speedboat shed and spotted a Moke, then found this photo in the gallery associated with the story.

Here's one for the Yellow Moke brigade...

Yellow Moke appeared in an advertisement on a show I recently recorded.
Looks to be a Portuguese Moke - judging by the mirrors and rear lights and obviously LHD.

Hi,

nice pick up. A '76'ish Australian Moke no less.

Sorry no pics. Spotted a moke heading north on the Pacific Highway in Gordon at lunch time. 79 Moke, red with black top PKU434.  :)
