I suspect it's this one currently on the evilbay:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1972-Mini-Mok ... SwOVpXe8Ym

Previously for sale in sussex. The unusual front end is apparently alloy and bolted on (according the to last owner / vendor) but replacement would also require a new bonnet with curved edges.

The vendor also has/had a '65 project moke for sale which I almost took in a deal against my clubmans racer which I sold to that Moke's previous owner! This was an unusually sensible decision by me, s it is/was too big project for me at the moment, though I sort of regret not going for it.......

Why do people put Weber's designed for Ford's on a Mini/Moke engine, and have the charge turn 90degrees before going into the head???????? My Aussie came with that set up, with Weber 65Bhp at the wheels and about 20 to the gallon, with SU properly set up 68Bhp at the wheels and over 30 to the Gallon.

Webers. Because sidedraught ones sound a lot better than SUs :D

That was my old Moke.
The reason it had the Weber, which was a DCD 28/36 not a side draught, was simply that it needed a new exhaust so I fitted a lcb and had the Weber manifold in the shed so I used it. And your right sounded better than an SU.
Not a daily driver so wasn't fussed about economy. It did like a drop of fuel though
