ORIGINAL MOKE RESTORED
One of the highlights of the recent 'Fall In - The Prisoner at Fifty' 50th anniversary event was the unveiling of the newly restored original Moke from the series.
Discovered in a barn in 2011, the Moke was purchased by fans Phil Caunt and Jeremy Guy for over £13000 at auction in 2015, and Phil has since undertaken a complete restoration of the vehicle, which was on show at the Portmeirion event and now looks as good as new!
The Moke featured in several sequences in 'Arrival', and perhaps most famously bearing its original numberplate in 'Living in Harmony'. Many of the original elements, including the engine, were retained by Phil, with even the original Penny Farthing bonnet decal still intact.
