In the mid 1980's Don Lawson, the owner of a refridgration company started producing stainless steel Moke bodies as his take on solving the issue of rusting Mokes. Called the SSSuperMoke all the panels were unique and with few exceptions familiar to an original Moke formed from his own Jigs. About five or six are know to still exist on the road and in 2009 four or five completed shells and a 20' shipping container were up for sale in Brisbane from the Lawson family. M&R Smash were also involved in dismantling the genuine Mokes and transfering the parts on to the stainless steel shells
