Hooniverse Weekend Edition: Live! A 1967 Mini Moke!

Live and in person, a one family owned 1967 Mini Moke!! That’s right my fellow Hoons. I spotted this example on Saturday located next door to a buddy’s home here in The Birthplace of Speed.

It seems to this olelongrooffan that I had seen a write up somewhere on these tubes recently about a Mini Moke but when I saw this one in person, I just had to share it with you. This is a 1967 Mini Moke with 37, 243 original miles on it. I spoke with the owner who inherited it from his late father. His dad purchased it new in 1967 and it has been in his family ever since.
Apparently, his dad was a fellow Hoon. In 1949, he imported an early MG and father and son met it at the docks in New York City to take delivery of it. The owner mentioned his dad, like mine, also owned some off the wall stuff including a Citroen of the DS variety, a VW microbus and an early Austin Healey.
The interior of these cool ole beach buggies are pretty spartan but this one is in fantastic shape with not a bit of rust showing.
The original top, however, has definitely seen better days as the rear window is torn and the grommets holding the top to the frame are a bit stretched.
All in all, though, it is a cool old time machine and would definitely fit in this olelongrooffan’s livery.
Anyway, that’s it. I just wanted to share this with my fellow Hoons out in Hooniverse and hope you enjoy it.
By the way, asking price is $12,500. Ouch!

  1. Cute as a bug, in good condition and way rare. Do want. However, that price stings. What would it be per pound? About the same as lobster?

  2. Kudos on the modest improvement in your writing, now cut out the 3rd person references and pseudo-folksy spelling all together.

    1. If the content here is not to your liking Dave, there are plenty of other car blogs out there. Some of which might even appreciate your unsolicited criticisms. Also, you can add me to the list of people who want to read your apparently perfect car blog, so as to get a better idea of what makes an asshole you tick.

  3. Mini Moke- for sale. I live in Florida, have"cash in hand", Please, where is Moke located?
