The Jimini was a kit car based on the Mini Moke using Mini mechanicals. Unlike many kit cars though, rather than employing a glassfibre body, it had an all‑steel one ‑ just as on the original machine. This example seems to have used a red 998cc model as its basis, originally registered and used abroad in 1977, but registered in the UK in February 1978. The vendor believes that the Moke was made by R J B Electronics in Middlesex. He acquired the vehicle in 2017 and tells us that 'all mechanical parts have been replaced with either new or reconditioned units'.

The list includes a: 998cc A+ engine, heavy duty clutch, aluminium radiator, new alternator, new suspension (high/low adjustable at the rear), new steering rack, new hydraulic brake and clutch assemblies, new brake discs and pads on front, new drums and shoes at the rear, an overhauled carburettor, recent tyres, Minilite wheels and top cover and side‑screens. The engine has done less than 250 miles since being fitted.

The car has no current MoT but, as a 1978 vehicle, it is now classed as historic and no longer requires one.  

The history file includes the V5C, list of new or reconditioned parts, and a stack of bills showing most of the work was carried out during 2018. There's also a Haynes Mini workshop manual.
