Price drop on this choke to $12k. now.. still no vin plate or Fla title.You have to wonder . what will happen to the e mokes from Moke America.. when they lose their trademark appeal against Moke Usa/ Acg.. next month?? Have to think US Customs will Seize and CRUSH them like they did the illegal land rover defenders. or fake Rolexs..  in past.

Correct on both posts,,  selling car with no vin plate or title is Felony  ( unless bill of sale says parts only ).  and this will be Felony X 12. I know of only couple curbers that could be this stupid..  no names mentioned .

The 12 Mokes were seized because they did not conform to US specs.

US
I would imagine it is called a "gas Moke" to let you know it is not one of the electric models.    Being a 2017, it is not old enough yet to be imported into this country.

Why is it called a "gas Moke"?  Why were they seized and shipped out?

The ad says it needs some love. Well, it needs more than love...the seller has no title nor does he have a VIN plate for it. Can you say, "Lawn Ornament?" Might be hard to put on the road without some kind of numbers. Rumor has it that these 12 were seized by Customs and sent back to the UK. Once back there they were cleverly bright back in pieces and reassembled. Imagine buying something US Customs shipped out and was snuck back in...you do the math on that $15 large gamble. Buyer beware!
