The BMC Experience is out now and has a few items of interest to Moke people, the obvious being the journalistic masterpiece written by yours truly reporting on MokeFest 2013 is supported by a 5 page article on the early prototypes and development of the Moke in the UK leading up when production moved to Australia. There are a couple of other images of Mokes in the competition and club news pages, however you can whet your appetite with the first page or so of the featured article by going to The BMC Experience website.

The most likely source for this misinformation comes from a book that unfortunately doesn't provide any information as to where it got is number from but in the context of the book is most likely correct, however it is not the final number.
