The Mini Moke has to be one of the most unusual vehicles ever produced by the British motor industry. A military jeep that became a symbol of fashion, it has a fascinating history. A jack of all-trades, the Mokes versatility has thrown it into many different spheres. Not quite a Land Rover, yet it will happily tackle fields hills and green lanes. Not quite a sports car, but you can still drive along with the wind in your hair enjoying the sensation of speed. Not quite a truck, but Mokes have carried some pretty peculiar loads in their time. And if it rains, well that is all part of the fun! The "little donkey" has been kicked in the teeth many times, but it has always bounced back. It was to its credit that this endearing little vehicle was in production for almost 30 years. It is loved by its owners and supported by Clubs around the world, dedicated to both the preservation and the use for all its designed purposes.
This book presents a portfolio of 63 contemporary articles on off-road, racing, touring, restoration and sales literature, drawn from the leading motoring journals of four continents, tracing the progress of the robust, versatile Mini Moke from its pre-production in 1964. Along with the original English Moke, Australian, Portuguese, and Cagiva models are also covered.
