Genevieve MacRae-Borovec ASKED THE GUIDE

Moke auto motive

IS IT possible to fit an automatic transmission to a 1977 Mini Moke California? I have a full licence, but have been driving a Holden Statesman Deville and, though I'd like to get experience driving with the manual gearbox, instructors are unwilling to take me in the Moke because of their concerns about insurance.

I'M SURE you could fit an auto to the Moke. After all, the Mini was sold with automatic transmission and the Moke is just a Mini in fatigues. If you really want to do it, try Northern Mini Parts who, I'm sure, could do a transplant for you. But I wouldn't recommend doing the conversion. Get a friend to go with you and learn to drive the Moke in manual form.
