Is it a moke? It's been heavily "worked on" if it is
At least can add up

The front end looks right for a SWB. Bit hard to see with only two pics.
I'm not taking any chances though and am heading to the airport now with my Mokety Moke chequebook and pen :lol:

I wish I could too Dean. That would go over a treat here. Hardly anyone would know what it was.

Apparently sold to a local farmer for herding cattle !
I kid you none.....
Shame, it should be restored like some of the other SWBs.

Yes, I go along with everyone else's thinking on this one. It's difficult to be 100% certain as the photos don't give us much to go on. However from what we can see it does look like it is one of the short wheelbase South African Mokes from c. 1962.

Has anyone come up with more on this and are any new photos of it available?

Graham,
Talk to Leon about it. I did, it's genuine, but as I wrote above, it sold to a local farmer, he said it was too modified for him to take on.
