Much of Live And Let Die is set on the fictitious island-country of San Monique in the Caribbean; these scenes were filmed at various locations in Jamaica, including those where Bond is briefly seen driving a right-hand drive Morris Mini Moke. The car used in these scenes was an Australian-built version of the Moke, distinguishable by the 13" wheels and wider wheel arches.

Live And Let Die was filmed, in October 1972 through to March 1973, so this Mini Moke was pre-1972. As it plays only a minor role it is likely that the movie production company sourced the vehicle locally in Jamaica.
