I've run twin hs2's on a couple different 998s and they do well.

This is a first for me, almost put it on the mini page but even though it has a 1275 a series and is awfully tiny, it's not a mini.

That red/white one looks like a decent car for $14k.
Not a fan of those deep bucket seats and the climb over front roll bar cage or the way the front arches have been cut out and had the wide flares installed.

Bored at work and surfing the craigsweb I found this that looks to be a pretty good deal.  Even has Vintage air installed.  I'm going to contact just to get details on that aspect of it.

Very clean straight looking car, A/C AND a sunroof! I kinda like the dash too.....at least the instrument surround - very hot rod-ish.

Also seems to have Aussie doors, but with internal hinges.  Did they put vent windows on any other MKII minis?

Could be Innocenti doors, ours are like that.....

I like this "Will not sell to anyone who won't come and inspect the car", so if someone offered him asking price he'd refuse?

Can you say purpose built even with street legal claim.  Not sure that's where this would be happy.

Supercharger and a 5 speed...……………..should be plenty quick. But you're in Honda V-tech territory at that price. I assume it's a street/track car?

Shoot, you can get 300 hp out of a 4 cylinder these days.....Seems like a decent price for a pretty nice little car.

I believe that is a Mini that was built by a local guy Brian Mac Gregor from Deland Florida.
It was built very well with no corners cut that i remember, i heard he had retired to North Carolina and as it is advertised in Georgia maybe he sold it.

Yea but then it sounds like a weed eater. It looks like an old ford or Chevy but smaller so it’d be sweet sounding with a v8 rumble.

Two Mokes just sold in Texas.

https://worldwideauctioneers.com/car-details/?id=69&rid=83 - Went for $19,800
https://worldwideauctioneers.com/car-details/?id=69&rid=119 went for $11,000


$19,800 seems like crazy money for the yellow wood bumper golf cart wheeled one, the blue one at $11,000 seems about right.

Tidy complete English Moke on Ebay.

Under the bonnet is a bit ratty, and has a few aftermarket items like seats.. but overall it looks like a great driver.

I really don't get the Moke thing - I mean if I lived in the Islands or someplace where it's always warm and you can't drive far or fast, then it might make sense to me.....but here - where it gets cold and it's a long way to anywhere? Just doesn't make much sense to me.....

Dont knock it till ya try it....
    Drove mine today =  72 here in Charlotte.   Winter is coming this weekend however...

  Yes its a 2-3 Season car.. Unless you do want to freeze in that winter , but theres nothing else like it with 4 wheels ( mabye a manx buggy or such)   and its a Mini Experience. I argue handles BETTER than a mini.  that is Lighter and has a Lower Center of gravity.
YES the interstate is NO thanks... but thats fine.

Gets WAY more attention in public,with the  "is that legal / Can you drive that questions"
  Easily hauls more than a sedan ( toss your stuff in and go).

Cole used mine for CMU and blasted around with all of us in the 'FAST group"  no worries = he got used to not hearing car noises , but hearing ' wind and outside noises, smelling smells outside of the window up sedans.  Nature driving.
 
 only tough people drive multiple hours in a Moke, Ive done it once,.  4 hrs once to CMU + Event  + home.


its been said before and I agree =  at this point if i HAD To get rid of all my mini's except one =  The Moke would stay.

I didn't get the Moke thing either. Multiple people kept telling me. So I got one. Now I get it. It was my first choice of car this year for shopping trips etc.


I'm not *quite* at the Moke would be the last one out stage yet, but not far off.

Hey, could you post that English Moke Ebay link again? It didn't work for me.
