I seriously doubt it's a factory one, the bum bit is pretty small on that one! The factory did have 2 versions that I know of. I think one had a tubular frame and the other did use folded angle. The back rest on both of these did fold down flat-ish.
Old Mokers never die, they just smell that way.

Home on Th'Orange was number 15416. There's a good resource here with many of the Australian colours

Home on Th'Orange is listed as a 1973-75 colour, that was in Leyland Australia's period of imaginative colour names.

You can't really.

The early models only had plain rubber ones, sometimes with an aluminium front badge pop-riveted across them. You could easily duplicate them in flat rubber sheet. Later cars (later than yours) had fancy moulded ones with the word Moke surrounded by a circle. Part number HYE1174.

Genuine ones have been unavailable for many years, but reproduction ones seem to come and go. There does seem to be a couple of options for them at the moment. A quick bit of googling for the part number or "Moke mud flaps" brings up several suppliers - I suspect that the quality varies a bit. Moke Australia and Minisport Australia both list them. I'd buy the more expensive ones.

Its probably fair to say that most people run without mud flaps. They can be a bit of a problem if you reverse into something. The mud flaps get caught against the tyre and are sometimes pulled off, torn in half, or even damage the rear mud guard.

hi weske
i think this is a orignal big wheeler
looking at al the details
the rear bow for the hood is not a uk one and also not the aussie on
i think it is a home made one

it is from 1968 of later but that is now problem looking nice

There is certainly.
We put the Moke back on his 13" wheels.
The original rear trailing arms are present.
Now I will look for the original wheels, steel wheels
If anyone knows where i find the five wheels in Europe ?

The German paint company Spies&Hecker has a formula for your color. See here:

Try to ask the paint shop which company they are using.

Be very careful if trying to match the colour from an original panel. Some of the colours fade very badly over time. My Moke was repainted by the previous owner, and they seem to have matched the colour to a faded part. It should be Scarlet O'Hara - red with a slight orange tint to it, but instead its just orange really.

I don't think fading will be that fading will be that much of a problem round here, you need an excess of sun for that. It's more likely to be red with a hint of rust. :lol:
At least can add up
