With the purchase of a JB grill from Kim a fellow J type van owner and restorer. It has been delivered from Kim to here, a trip of over 3000 km. Already it is nearly finished being repaired, painted and will soon be fitted
If I hurry up and get on with it I will post a picture of it fitted before Christmas. I will get the van on the road next year.
May I take this opportunity to wish all fellow J owners around the world a fantastic Christmas.
As they say " The only way is a J ".

Views of the van in it's new home.
Below are some pictures of the van some time ago.
|Australian chassis plate showing 45066 dating to approximatly late 1959 early 1960. But as no prefix has been stamped on it, we are not sure if its a rare Australian Austin 101 or a Morris JB. (with an austin grill).|
|Damaged body plate.|
|Replacement engine has been reconditioned, the original aluminium plate has been removed and the new engine number stamped straight onto the cast iron block.|
|An Australian extra plate on the panel above the near-side windscreen.|
|Posing, showing off its original chrome bumper, a nice looking van.|
