Thanks for all the replys. Sounds like this isn't a Catalina Moke.

Tom showed me a photo of about that number stacked on top of each other on a semi. I got mine at a good price through a mutual friend.

I bought my first Moke from Tom in Minn, he had several stacked up on top of each other. I bought what I thought was the best one but I still had to buy a bunch of panels from the UK. I dropped a 1275 in mine, goes like $hite off a shovel!

This?: https://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/lethbridge/1968-mini-moke-body/1637245541?undefined

.
Simple recipe for Excitement:  Take 1 Classic Mini. Throw in 1590cc's of engine. Add 5 gears. A dash of 94 octane. A sprinkle of style inside and out. Toss in 1 MadMan and finally heat tires and pavement to taste. Recipe produces 1 Mini VTEC conversion and full satisfaction. Motor on!
