Andrew's Moke
« on: February 09, 2013, 05:04:51 PM »
Just after Christmas bought my first Moke.
I have wanted one since I was in Queensland when I was young.
1971 Moke with hardly any floor.
It's going to be a long restoration.

Some serious rust in those floors, and it looks like it's been re-plated before.

Were they using some sort of Shell fuel  ;) I prefer BP my self  ;D

What are your plans? customise, standard, show car or daily user?

1974 Moke with Suzuki GTI motor (project),

Nice Moke, the floor's so clean and with such good paint, you can see the reflection of the car behind you. Nice
Old Moker's never die - they just smell that way

It's not whether you win or loose but how you play the game.

Going to keep it as standard as I can with a look of a Californian in white.
My wife found a picture of Greg Norman in the New Idea in his white Moke, "that's what I want it to look like" I have been told.

Hi,

You must be expecting to remove a fair bit of metal if you have parked a large Sims scrap bin next to the Moke!!!  :)

Got a rear seat today for the Moke out of a coaster bus hi back type but it cost big $  ------:) $5.00
And it in great condition, Iam going to recover it anyway.
It's 900mm wide and fits perfect.
Has any one got any suggestions for the front seats I thought Hyundai Excel with the seat beats attached to the frame.

The seat mounts would not really support a seat with inbuilt seat belts fitted, your entire weight and that of the seat would likely pull out the the four little bolts in any sort of medium to major de-acceleration.

Heh! Your moke floor pictures reminded me of my moke floor pictures. Hopefully the rust isn't as prevalent elsewhere, the repair job on mine is turning into a major chore. :)
