Certainly time to add some interesting stuff that has turned up this week.

958 BTJ

Of major interest is a van previously unknown to the Register, which has surfaced after at least a decade in storage. It is a 1957-registered, low-mileage, one owner from new van prior to being purchased by its new owner. We await more details but do know it was one of a pair of vans used as ice cream vans although it doesnt have a raised roof. The standard steel body, which seems to be in remarkably good condition, has a serving hatch in the side windows. We are told that more info and photos are on their way…

From Australia Peter Bateman writes:

“Those blokes from Oz must have a special brew in their water supply. Only months after reporting the magnificent Queensland V6 J type Hot Rod (blog June 22, 2014) 1200 kilometres away in New South Wales another Morris JB van is being admired. The upholsterer Will Hughes not only has saved this van but is driving this 1958 JB EVERYWHERE!
Carrying the livery The Upholsterer is chassis # JB/R 41298 and was one of the Golden Crust Bakery fleet from Goulburn in southern NSW. It had been “grazing” in a paddock for many years when it was bought at auction with heaps of farm machinery. Will glimpsed it one dark night whilst it was being carted to his local metal recycler. One can only ponder the magic of chance on that important evening. Will grasped that serendipitous moment and now has a working gem, a beautiful restored JB”.

We have also received photos of PAF 764, the  ex-Bryn Jones’ van now carrying neat graphics for ‘A Steph Back in Time’. Thanks to Ken Bennett for these.
