Mini Moke for Sale

MOKE 2XS*  High Performance 1980 Mini Moke

Offered for Sale at $US 18,500

Matching Trailer optional at an additional $US 1,000


This Moke is being sold personally by me, Alan Margison. Beware of scams; do not deal with anyone claiming to have authority from me to sell the car.


Imported ten years ago from Australia, where it was manufactured in 1980, this Mini Moke has escaped from rust and corrosion.

The vehicle was in good roadworthy condition when acquired but it was a basic Moke: outdated, underpowered and uncomfortable.

It has now been modernized to present day standards and technologies in order to improve its performance, reliability, safety, appearance and comfort.

Modifications here described were done over the past ten years by the current owner who has experience working on and renovating British cars.

It resides and is registered in Victoria, BC, Canada

The car is only used in the summer so has had no contact with road salt.

It is garage stored year round.

Kids absolutely love it!

If you are importing this into the United States, California may be a problem while all other States should be OK. I have a friend who has sold 2 Minis and 1 Moke into different states in the last few years. Check with your local vehicle licensing authorities.

Parked or driving around, this Moke gets more public attention than would an Aston Martin! 
Buy only if that suits you
