This Mini Moke has an interesting story to tell. It was originally purchased new by the solicitor, property developer and bloodstock breeder Sir Gerald Glover. The car was kept at his home where he bred racehorses and was used only to move around his land and there it stayed for several decades. Along with breeding racehorses, Sir Gerald Glover was also a London property developer and he owned the land upon which the factory for the famous Hooper & Co coachbuilder to Rolls Royce was built. This association led to him asking Hooper to add the additional coachwork that is present on this Moke today along with the various elements of sign writing which includes his racing colours. Hooper also adorned the car with various trademark badges to show it was their work. The car languished on his farm and eventually fell into disrepair and after the death of Sir Gerald it passed to his wife. It was following her death that a family member set about having the car restored in 2011 at a cost of a little over £8,000. This involved a complete strip down with the body blasted and repaired where necessary and then treated to a fresh cost of paint. Various other aspects of the car were refurbished but being a low mileage car there was no need for an engine rebuild. Moving on to today, the last owner was Gina Glover who passed the car to the current family custodian.

This Moke starts on the button and runs as you would expect of a low mileage car. Sadly we do not have any paperwork in the file relating to the work by Hoopers or indeed sufficient MOT certificates to warrant the mileage (this is predominantly because the car was not used on the road), but the car is owned by a relative of Sir Gerald Glover and the story backs up everything we have written here. There are invoices and details on file of the substantial restoration which was undertaken along with photographs of the car prior to and after its restoration. The car was also treated to a new hood and a full set of sidescreens.

We have recently gone through the car to ensure it is ready for its next custodian and this has included fitting a new starter motor and windscreen wiper motor. The current MOT is advisory free and expires in Nov 2022.

This might not be a Moke for the purist given the additional coachwork, but if you want one that is unique with a fantastic story to tell, this one is hard to beat!
