Motorclassica, the Bendigo Bash and The NEC!

The Aussies have had a great time organising the Motorclassica and Bendigo 70th Anniversary events.

Six vans were on show at Motorclassica in Melbourne, whilst an impressive thirteen turned out for the Bendigo event. A fourteenth van turned up for the Sunday afternoon at the Morris Minor Garage.

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.

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.
