JB's van truly becomes a JB.

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 ".

No words needed.

No words needed, the pictures of the fleet out in the sunshine tell it all.

Purchased and brought home.

Views of the van in it's new home.

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.

Below are some pictures of the van some time ago.
