Austin 101
Express Delivery Van

This Morris designed van was called the 'J' type, it had a facelift in 1957 to be called the 'JB'. BMC decided that they would do a version for the Austin dealers and called it the 101. The only difference to the Morris version would be the Austin badge and the grille was slightly larger.
