Mini moke je tudi zanimov primerek minija. Zunaj se jih dosti prodaja (http://www.olx.pt/q/moke/c-378).



Why would anybody want one?
Have you ever been on a roller coaster ride, or sat in a really fast go-cart? Same sort of feeling. This car really gets peoples’ attention, not that it has any elegant lines or looks long, low and sporty, perhaps it’s just the opposite. The fact is it looks unlike anything else out there, is small but brutal with sharp lines and looks like it has just come off a washing machine production line.

History of the Mini Moke
The Mini Moke was designed by Sir Alec Issigonis at the same time as the Mini Saloon. The Moke was born in response to the British Army's search for air transportable vehicles. It was certainly light and compact, particularly with the windscreen down, but the front wheel drive, small wheels and low ground clearance did not give sufficient mobility, although experimental four wheel drive Mokes were built - with two engines and transmissions, power at each end! (some of which are still in existence, picture right).The general idea was to design a utility version of the Mini- a lighter weight Land Rover capable of packing in crates to be dropped from the sky with a parachute or lowered by helicopter (if you look carefully at a Moke, you can see how with the windscreen removed, they stack on top of each other, the wheels on the top one fitting nicely on the fenders underneath). The big military orders fell through but the Moke went on to become a cult, a real classic car.

The first pre-production prototype was produced in 1959 and a handful of other prototype Mini Mokes was made up until 1964.

The English Mokes had the original Mini 10" wheels, while later Australian models were fitted with 13" wheels and the body was hot galvanized dipped from late 1979 early 1980 onwards.

The first production Moke was manufactured in January 1964 at BMC's Longbridge factory in Birmingham, England. Production continued until late October 1968 with around 15,000 English Mokes produced

Production then entirely switched to BMC's factory in Sydney, Australia, where they had been producing the Moke since 1966. A number of specification changes had been made to suit the local conditions and the growing leisure vehicle market. The Mini Moke was manufactured in Australia until early 1982.

MOKE je izredno zanimiva izpeljanka minija in veseli me, da si se zagrel za objavo!
povezava na kateri je ogromno moke, ki se prodajajo je zlata jama..... kajti Portugal ima očitno najnižje cene za Moke, katerim zaradi svoje izvedbe izredno odgovarja morska ali obmorska klima. v evropi jih je razen anglije in portugalske bilo dosti prav v italiji, grčiji. imajo ga tudi na hrvaškem, češkem itd..... in prav zato bi me veselilo, da bi dobila enega tudi slovenija.
žal so minili dobri časi, ko si ga lahko našel na italijanskih odpadih. zadnjega na odpadu sem videl cca. 13 let nazaj. žal takrat ni bil dovolj zanimiv, čeprav je imel prevoženih samo nekaj tisoč kilometrov. iz njega sem pobral nekaj kosov kot so komplet prednje luči (še vedno na mojem rumenem miniju).
Tomcl, upam, da boš ti prvi slovenec z mini mokom!
