The Moke came to Ireland via Jersey and is undergoing a full restoration by myself, Paul & James in MiniFix garage here in Dublin, Ireland.

Subframes out & interior stripped.

The Moke was left outside sitting in a garden lawn on it's underside & with no cover. The seats have rusted frames & are not saveable. The front subframe has no rear arms & is scrap. The rear subframe is OK & will be cleaned & overhauled.

Rear subframe out. Don't park your Moke under Lawson Cypress trees. Shown is the remains of the rear seat mounts - so you can imagine the state of the seats. :o :D :lol:

I really don’t understand why people store things in that way :o It’s obvious they will deteriorate quickly

G'day,
From your photo's the MOKE looks to be in great condition, except the seat mount of course.

Moving along nicely.
