Despite the distinctive and much‑loved Minor shape, this isn't actually a Morris but an Austin. When the Austin A35 van went out of production in 1968, some light commercial versions of the Moggie were badged as Austins instead. But aside from the badging and the fitment of the marque's traditional crinkled grille, there were no differences between the Austin and Morris models, although the Austins were ‑ and are ‑ obviously much rarer. This 1969 6cwt example was rebuilt in 1993 by the Morris Minor Surgery in Suffolk, using a lot of new panels, at a cost of £6349. Its colour was changed from green to blue at the same time.

The paperwork includes a list of what was done during the 1993 restoration, along with MoTs going back to 1993. As the mileage then was 97,844, it suggests the current recorded mileage of 56,880 is actually 156,880.

The van displays some patina on and inside the cab, as well as around the roof guttering, but is otherwise a good, solid example of its type.
