Lot No. 632 - 1965 Prisoner Morris Mini Moke

Sold for: £13,750

Four Mini Mokes were said to have been converted by Wood & Pickett in the summer of 1966 for the Prisoner series, and transported to Portmeirion in September 1966. Each were subtly different, and parts and fittings were swapped around during the course of filming. Some of the Mini Mokes, if not all, were later returned to London for use in studio filming. Two registrations were CFC 916C and HLT 709C, the first having been owned by Max Hora the once proprietor of the Prisoner shop at Portmeirion. It is the exciting news that HLT 709C has been discovered in storage in a barn in Holland, where it has been for many years and is now back home in the UK. The Mini Moke, still complete with its original candy striped canopy and the remnants of the canopied Penny Farthing on the bonnet can be seen. It is believed that this Mini Moke was owned by someone involved in the original series production of the Prisoner. Whilst previous Mini Mokes connected to the series have not been one hundred percent verified to have appeared in the series, there can be no doubt whatsoever of this Mini Mokes provenance, which is proven by the license plate HLT 709C as seen in picture 3 It is this Mini Moke which featured the Prisoner episode ‘Living In Harmony' driven onto a back lot at MGM Studios, which was used for the American Wild west frontier Town of Harmony, by actor David Bauer as No.2, as seen in the next picture taken from the episode.Certainly in the past there have been many finds to be linked to the Prisoner, but none so in recent years, this amazing little car has remained in dry storage since 1974. HLT 709C, for fans of the Prisoner is an amazing find and where better to release this car to the public than here in CarFest South 2015.
