Technical specifications, photos and description:
With Austin and Morris both being part of BMC. the Minor-based
Morris commercials were also marketed as the Austin 6cwt and Austin
8cwt. with a closed van and open pick-up version of the Minor being
built from 1953 until the end of production in 1973. They were
designed for commercial use with small businesses in mind. although
many made their way to larger corporations. The van version was
popular with the Post Office. with the early version of these (to
around 1956) having rubber front wings. to cope with the sometimes
unforgiving busy situations in which they were expected to work.
Both the van and the pick-up differed from the monocoque
construction of the Saloon and Traveller variants. by having a
separate chassis. They also differed in details such as telescopic
rear dampers. stiffer rear leaf springs and lower-ratio
differentials to cope with the heavier loads. The commercial
versions were initially marketed as the Morris Quarter Ton Van and
Pick-up. with a Series III designation applied from 1956. The names
Minor 6cwt Van and Pickup were used following the introduction of
the 1098cc engine in 1962. and the 8cwt version was added in
