Do you have a radio/CD player/etc in your Mini Moke?

If so, is it installed like this:

If not how and where have you installed it.
Where did you put the speaker(s) ?

PS No need to respond if your Mini Moke has too many very loud rattles, noises etc that you can't hear it even if you had one installed. :lol:
Having a moking good time!

In my blue '81 Moke it's mounted under the heater unit.
Had to set it back a little so the gear stick wouldn't hit it and change the station on me :D .
Speakers are mounted on the cross member under the seats.

The green '81 is a custom dash with the speakers mounted in the headrests of the seats.

How about something period correct?

This is a 1970s Sanyo Tachrad. I haven't fitted it yet, I'm still working out what to do about the rest of the system. I've been looking at motorbike radio/mp3 players. They are small and waterproof. Most have bluetooth so you can hide them and send music to them from your phone. The speakers can be mounted on handlebars, or maybe the roll bar or even the mirror arms.

In 1974 a Sanyo Tachrad cost $136, that's around $750 in today's money, hence it needed a quick release mounting bracket and a lock.
