The Austin 1973 Mini Moke looks like something that you would expect to see in a militarized version of The Italian Job. Originally designed for the British Motor Corporation by Sir Alec Issigonis, the Mini Moke was supposed to be a cross between a Mini Morris and a light military vehicle, creating what looks like a really dainty Jeep.
Launched onto the British market in 1964, it’s fitted with a low-end 850 CC I-4 Engine and has the same suspension gear box and 10-inch wheels as the typical Mini. The Mini Moke went on to achieve cult status, with 90% of the 14,500 that were sold being shipped out of the British Isles overseas. As such, finding a Moke in this sort of state is no mean feat.
If you have $55,000 to spare (plus shipping) and consider regular Jeeps too chunky, head over to Man of the World to snag yourself a Mini Moke.
