Thanks. The Kevin C Moke may be too nice for what I am looking for. Someone will buy that and make it a trailer queen. I don't own a trailer...

Wonder what the chokes will do to the value of the real Mokes - up or down?

A Moke is a good idea. One really doesn't understand Minis until spending time with a Moke. Start with a Saloon. Remove all the stuff that's not necessary and one ends up with a Moke. There has been a beautifully restored Moke (in the S.E.) mentioned recently that is likely to go up for auction sometime in 2018.

There is also a '64 firetruck pickup (which you know about) and a '68 Mk II Cooper S Liverpool Police car that are likely to go up for sale early in 1968.

Spit.... the hornet looks like a very tidy car, as for the lights I think they are a distraction and I would
remove them unless spirited night driving was in order.

The lights on my mini in the avatar are CIBI Oscars, Driving & Fog lights installed by the previous owner.
If you have ever driven with excellent lights at night and then use only your original lights it's like driving with no lights on.

also 10" wheels would look better on the Hornet IMHO.


Later,.......spoiled rotten

Thanks, looks very nice. Are those vent wing doors original, or an add-on?
The doors were original to the pup. I'm not really a Mk1 guy, so I love the fact that they are roll up.

Whee, My pickup was originally used by a hospital in Kent (England) just for that purpose; i.e., being able to start against a fire giving time for the big boys to arrive.

The S.A. truck would have been made originally with those doors.

Well I do live in a high fire risk area - think my home insurance would give me a discount if I had my own personal fire truck?

Thank you. That Moke looks very nice.

I welded the shifter about 2" taller and slightly bent forward. Worked out fantastic, really comfortable. In the one picture you can see where I was mocking up the ebrake. I will be moving it forward to clear the bench. The bench is coming back from the upholster this weekend. I'll have pics of the Bakkie in I would say 2 weeks. Maybe a hair more after the wedding.
