ORIGINAL MOKE FOUND
Exciting news has reached The Unmutual Website! One of the original Mini Moke vehicles used in "The Prisoner" filming in 1966/67 has been located.
The Moke had been in storage in a barn in Holland for many years until a Dutch restorer and aficionado purchased it recently with a view to a complete restoration.
The Moke, still complete with its original "Prisoner" canopy and Pennyfarthing-logo bonnet, is believed to have been owed by someone involved in the original series' production. Whilst previous Mokes connected with the series have not 100% been proven to have appeared in the series, there is no doubt in this case as the vehicle in question appears towards to the end of the episode "Living in Harmony" with its HLT 709C numberplate!
As this fascinating story unfolds, rest assured that The Unmutual Website will keep you all informed.
