The Morris J type 10 cwt. commercial van was produced between 1949 and 1961.
In 1957 the updated van, with a 'B series' engine became the JB type. They were badged:
  • JB/MR - Morris
  • JB/AR - Austin
The GPO Types

The GPO Fleet purchased more than 6000 Morris J type vans for both postal and engineering duties.

Thus the GPO JB type was specified with:
  • Rubber front and rear wings
  • Improved locks for security
  • Headlamps fitted to the cabside instead of the chassis
  • Rear door locking bar, driver operated (some utilities)
  • Diesel engines (some batches)
  • Driver's opening windscreen (some vehicles)
