vehicle overview

1949 Morris Series Y Van 10 cwt. In design prior to the outbreak of World War II, the Series Y 10 cwt van was the replacement for the Series 2 version. Production commenced in 1940, with van and truck variants. Post-war production was limited to the van variant. A bespoke Ambulance version of the Series Y was also produced during the war. This was a physically larger vehicle which used a 14hp engine and featured larger wheels and tyres. It had a lengthened chassis and a 10 inch longer wheel base than the “standard” 12hp versions. This fabulous Morris van was first registered in November 1949, and according to the Heritage certificate was built 16-18 November. The van was restored by Bray & Griffiths of Weston-super mare some years ago but is still in great order today with no signs of any rust or rot and is very presents very well. We think that the registration number "GFH 982" is its original mark. It drives very well with a great 1547cc side valve engine and a three speed gearbox. Now MOT and Tax exempt ownership costs are kept to a minimum. Without doubt a very popular van of its era with many bought to work hard and consequently worked to death. With this in mind, examples like this are now difficult to acquire. The whole concept of purchasing a light commercial for private classic motoring combined with its advertising potential is one we have enjoyed for many years and proved to be an enormous success. Without doubt the most economical and successful form of advertising known to man! Just waiting to be enjoyed. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. Viewing is highly recommended.
