The Morris Commercial J Van was a 10 cwt (half ton) forward control vehicle which Morris Commercial launched in 1960. Its versatile style and capacity proved particularly popular as a delivery van and also as a light commercial fleet vehicle.
Here we see it as used by the Greater Manchester Police, registered GNC 264N from 1974, the last year of manufacture. Its glazed rear doors must have proved very useful either for loading up the local miscreants or accommodating Police crews attending an incident.
Decorated in an authoritative black scheme inside and out, the 1:76 scale van sides have white POLICE lettering alongside the colourful Greater Manchester Police crest.
The POLICE signage also appears under the front windscreen in blue on a white ground. Contrasting silver wheels, hub caps and bumpers, window surrounds and door handles round off the authentic feel.
