The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
Rare Leland Moke
This 1972 Mini Moke was originally a right-hand-drive Australian-market example that was imported by the prior owner and then given a complete, customized restoration over the course of two years. Highlights include a conversion to left-hand drive, all new paint, interior, and cosmetics, the larger 1275cc high-compression four-cylinder engine, upgraded suspension/braking, and much more as detailed below. This unique Moke is now offered with a current California registration, and a clean California title. Buyer must transport.
It is apparent that the two-year restoration was completed to a high standard, with the first order of business being a left-hand drive conversion. The vehicle was stripped down and professionally painted yellow, which contrasts well with the blue push-bar bumpers and roll bar. New mirrors, trim, and mud flaps were also fitted along with stainless steel hardware replacing nearly all of the OEM components. A custom center-exit exhaust system.
This Moke comes with a roof including bikini top. Additionally, a custom canvas top with side curtains was fabricated. Rolling stock consists of 12″ Minilite-style wheels wrapped in new 165/60 series Yokohama A539 tires. Braking is handled with discs up front and OEM Mini fins in the rear. The brakes and master cylinder are all-newer.
The seller mentions that there is no rust, corrosion, or filler to be found on this Moke, which looks sharp throughout in photos. Hella driving and fog lamps are fully functional and give the vehicle a rallye-style look. The suspension is described as fully adjustable with new shocks recently installed.
Inside, second-generation Mazda Miata seats have been fitted along with 3″ lap belts. The original seats are included with the sale, but will need restoration. The floor has been treated with Rhino-liner for easy cleaning and is covered with new rubber floor mats. All surfaces look to be in nice condition throughout.
A custom-built dashboard with carbon fiber inserts frames all-new Magnolia gauges. All instrumentation and lighting is said to work well with the exception of an erratic fuel gauge. The thick Mini steering wheel has been fitted and the odometer currently shows 1,650miles, though true mileage is unknown.
Under the hood, a larger 1275cc high-compression inline-four was fitted during the restoration and is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. Bosch electronic ignition is utilized along with a 3:1 header, single HIF carburetor, relocated rod change shift mechanism, and a new fuel pump/sending unit. The seller states that this Moke runs and drives very well with a smooth clutch and surprising amount of pep.
Sale is as is, where is, with all subject to verification from buyer. Buyer pays transportation.
