The Most Classic British Beach Buggy Ever Made is Back

This one got me a retweet by Moke International.


If you don’t remember the Mini Moke, just imagine that a Jeep Wrangler fell in love with a Mini Cooper and had a very awesome baby. The British multi-purpose vehicle quickly gained popularity as a beach buggy and attracted droves of devoted followers in former British colonies off the coast of Africa, the Caribbean, and tropical climates around the world.

Production stopped over two decades ago, but now it’s back, under new ownership, and better than ever.

The first Mokes were produced in the United Kingdom from 1964 through 1968. There was also a plant in Australia in the 1960s, and in Portugal from 1980 to 1993, when production ended.
Ideally, it won’t take long for an enterprising investor to gather a small fleet to cruise South Beach or Key West. But in the meantime, you could always take an impromptu beach vacation to a tropical island to give one a spin.
