Mini Moke.

Contrary to what its looks may suggest, the Mini Moke is actually a factory-produced car, not a kit car. Introduced in the 1960s, it's based on the original Mini and was originally developped to pitch to the British Army who showed very little interest in it. It instead appealed to folks who lived near the beach and needed a summer car to get around. It was to the Mini what the Citroen Mehari was to the 2CV. This particular one was appropriately enough spotted in Carry, France.
