I love the mint condition with lack of photos.  Is a pretty unique looking one though and from the few shots seems in good shape.  A close inspection of the usual rust areas and the mechanicals and if all checks out I'd say that's a good price.

Passing on the blue Clubman Estate in Florida for now.

I have a few other things going on that may delay the search a bit.  Maybe that will give the time needed for the Moke project to pick up momentum again.

Is the body at the paint shop now? Did you decide to stay with white? Appliance white or more of a cream white?

There is someone in our club selling a Traveller or Countryman. I do not think he is in a hurry to sell.
It is in the SF Bay Area which is a ways from. It does have a flip front which can be something people like or dislike.

I can get details when you and if you are interested as I do not believe it is listed any where yet. It does need some attention I am sure, but he desrcibed the issues.

Dave,

The Moke body is at the paint shop.  It actually got dropped off just before Thanksgiving, but they are just now getting it into the schedule for working on it.  My contact there was hoping they would start it this week.

Edit:
I forgot to answer Dave's other questions.  I am staying with white for the body.  Going with more to the "appliance white".  The bonnet is not being redone as I am trying to keep the decals on it intact (UK flag and "Moke Patrol" script).  The outside of the bonnet had been repainted a bright white and they are going to try to match to that as best they can.  (The underside of the bonnet is still the original  more cream colored "Old English White" and also has a couple of markings I wanted to keep.)

Michael, here's one that is near you, in the Austin area

The photos were obviously taken in the UK, but what is that little Mini up against the house?!   Looks like it is made from stone.

For just $31K, how could anyone possibly pass up this one?

A bit of an unusual Mini.  Wicker details like the Radford Minis of Peter Sellers and Blake Edwards, and Innocenti headlight rings.

That "Gators" one is VERY easy to pass up.  Bleh!

I'll check out the others shortly.  Playing catch-up to emails and posting from being on the road the last two days.

Michael, don't know if you are still considering getting another Mini, but I saw this one here in Texas.

I decided to drag my feet on getting another Mini to go with the Moke.  I want to prioritize getting the Moke back on the road and then decide what is next in life before committing to another Mini or other major endeavor. 

I've been putting off dealing with some major decisions from all that went on last year.

Kind of reviving the thought of a second Mini.

Any of the Oklahoma guys know this one?
