AUSTIN MINI MOKE 998cc 1989

vehicle overview

1989 Mini Moke 998cc. Cinnabar red with Black sports upholstery. This Moke has been used for the past three years as transport at a holiday villa in Crete before arriving in the UK. Mokes were first built at the Morris factory in Oxford before production moved to BMC's Longbridge, Birmingham plant, and then eventually overseas. 14,500 Mokes were produced in the UK between 1964 and 1968, 26,000 in Australia between 1966 and 1981, and a further 10,000 were built in Portugal between 1980 and 1993 when production of the Moke ended. As Australian Moke production wound down, manufacturing was transferred to British Leyland's subsidiary in Portugal, which made 8,500 of the "Californian" Mokes in the Setúbal IMA plant between 1980 and 1984. In 1984, the production was transferred to the Vendas Novas plant. Initially these Mokes were identical to late model Australian Mokes; very soon, however, they were altered to use then-current British production Mini saloon components, including the standard-length Mini rear trailing arms and the 12 in wheels with modern low-profile tyres, which the saloon had acquired during the Moke's absence from Europe. This particular Moke has had an updated interior and brand new weather gear fitted and has recently had new brakes and a complete undercarriage overhaul and has an MOT through to January 2017. The car drives just as a Mini Moke should and is great fun and turns heads everywhere you go. Mokes are becoming increasingly hard to acquire nowadays and having spent its life in the sun remains in very good order. Because of their rarity we see this car as a good investment. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. Viewing is highly recommended. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Please contact us for any further information. Free delivery within the UK mainland.
