This van was found in Gweru, Zimbabwe, by Richard McLaurin. Richard acquired it and set about rebuilding/restoring it. It returned to the UK with Richard and family in 1984, the story of its rebuild and subsequent journey back home forming a chapter in ‘The J-type, a Classic Light Commercial’. It was sold on to Bob Sandford, who carried out major amounts of work on it, and then moved on to a new home a few years ago. In Bob’s ownership it was regularly seen at rallies but now seems to have been put into mothballs.
