New date for Classic Van and Pickup Show

We have heard from the organisers at Gaydon’s British Motor Museum that a new date has been scheduled for the 2021 Classic Van and Pickup Show, in conjunction with the Classic and Vintage Commercial Show. It is now scheduled for the weekend of August 14th/15th. This is in line with the latest government announcements about the timings for changes to the current Covid lockdown.


The J, J/B & 101 Register

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 would like to load a photo/gallery page 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 exists to:

 

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

2.    List known survivors

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.
