Thats brilliant
Presumably the moke was relatively new, what a great trip.

I reckon it would be a very early Moke given they were first sold in Australia in April 1966 and first photo she is in Wyndham in 1966 and her story suggests she had spent a reasonable time in Roebourne and Broome with jobs.

Love the Tare and Aggregate weights in Hundredweight on the side  :). Must have been registered as a commercial vehicle in WA then and subject to the same regs as trucks.
