That registration number is obviously not correct for a UK Moke. In addition to the Suffix number being wrong, a yellow plate would be on the back of the vehicle. Some previous owner either found or bought a UK numberplate and just put it on the Moke. Lots of folks in the US do this and could care less about what year the UK registration number represents.

Nice find i am presuming it is a. UK Moke?
That number is not available on the DVLA database
