Gaydon Classic Commercials Aug 9th 2020

Sunday the 9th is the day for what was the Classic Van and Pick-up Show at Gaydon. It has now been amalgamated with the annual Classic & Vintage Gathering, also moved forward from its original June date. 

In any normal year the Register would be happy to display, but in these Covid19-sensitive times we have not felt that it is safe enough yet to poke our heads above the parapet, as it were.

The J, J/B & 101 Register

As announced in the last newsletter, Review 50, the time has come to ‘pull the plug’ on the newsletter in its printed paper format. The intention is to put out digital Reviews to a mailing list of anyone who is interested. These newsletters will be on a casual basis, going out as and when there is enough to justify pressing the ‘Send’ button. They would be created in such a way as to be printable, so that those enthusiasts who like to things paper-based will still be able to do so via a series of A4 sheets. It will rely on enthusiasts sending in J-related stuff to include. Review 50 showed that it is possible to find lots of interest out there.
There are ongoing expenses that occur with running the Register so we are asking for a payment of £5 per annum to be on the mailing list. Additional donations will be welcome.
          Please do get in touch if you have any concerns, queries, or something suitable for future editorial content.

Members please note:  Contact HQ for details of the password for the Members-only areas of the website.

As well as the obvious buttons across the top, the ‘chassis plate’-shaped box on the right contains additional buttons for numerous additional galleries of photographs and information. The ‘Morris-Commercial’, ‘Morris’ and ‘Austin’ badges to the right are also buttons which give access to galleries of preserved vans. Over a period of time we are hoping to load a photo for every known surviving van, but it will take some time to complete. Currently there are photographs/pages for 341 different vans in the galleries – 178 ‘J’ types, 134 J/Bs and 29 101s, with a few more to be loaded as and when time permits or as and when details of survivors new to the Register are sent in!

Including individual van pages in the galleries, there are more than 300 pages to be found, plus the Blog. We’ve passed the 1000-mark in photographs loaded, including many additions to the pages in the ‘History‘ section, some of which are password protected Register members-only pages.

Please note: Photographs on this website have been watermarked, not to imply ownership in any way but to indicate this website as the source.  The copyright of any photograph supplied for use by the Register on this website or in the Newsletter will remain with its owner. It is often not easy to attribute ownership of any individual photo, but where possible we will indicate such.

The J-type Register was formed to:

1.    Gather and collate information about the history of the vans

2.    List known survivors (photos of over 340 different survivors are on the website)

3.    Act as a central pool of information regarding spares and restoration

4.   Encourage the use of these wonderful light commercials for the maximum enjoyment of owners and enthusiasts everywhere.

Classic Van an Pick-up gaydon-2016

 

J-types from THREE continents were on display on the Register stand at Gaydon 2016.

top-hoses

 

 

The Register has had a small batch of top hoses made for J/Bs and 101 vehicles. These are not suitable for s.v. J-types.

They’re £14.00 plus postage. They could of course be collected from HQ if nearby anytime, or from Gaydon if either of the commercial shows there are attended.
