• Oxford 76J4001 Morris J4 Van - Royal Mail (OO gauge)

An OO scale model.

The Morris Commercial J4 was a 10 cwt (0.5 ton) forward-control van launched by Morris Commercial in 1960 and produced with various upgrades during its lifetime. The van was marketed first as both the Morris J4 and the Austin J4, following the formation of the British Leyland Motor Corporation in 1968, which absorbed BMC, the British Motor Corporation. As a result, the J4 was also called the ‎Morris 10/12 cwt. External changes to the J4 over the years included the supply of a diesel engine, so a ‘BMC diesel’ badge was fitted to the front; from 1967 to 1974 the rear doors were unglazed – probably only specified by the GPO and Post Office.

From 1969 the front Morris badges were replaced with heavy stainless steel Morris badging.  This changed again a year later when the large Morris badge was replaced with the small chrome AUSTIN MORRIS badge.
