Re: More the better....

After closer inspection The only thing on the tag is the Z27253 the other side of the tag is blank. Is there any other location for numbers on the van? My vin is MAEU496263 Any idea what year my van was made. I know it was sold in 1960 as a 1961 model. The old owner said he thought it was made in la...

Re: Morris Minor Van Parcel Tray

Just happens that it is the year they changed 1959. Being late 1959 - if like the traveler it would be the one the steering shaft goes through. The earlier cars the tray was on top of the steering shaft. Here in the USA i have seen some webbed trays - may be a dealer option. Then gray shelf's which ...

Morris Minor Van Parcel Tray

I was looking at the usual suppliers and i see a few list a parcel shelf for a LCV or Van.
After looking at the dimensions and seeing they are listed as the same for all models.
My question is there a difference in the Van parcel shelf from the others?
If so, What is different?

Re: Fitting a 9.5 gall tank to a Traveller

I saw a 9.5 tank put in a traveler last summer. They had to trim the original hole to make it wider so the tank would sit down like the original. I do not know if it obstructed the spare from fitting for sure or not. If i had to guess i would say if the tire fit with the 6.5 it would fit the 9.5. I ...

Re: More the better....

There was no engine or transmission when i bought the van. I was told the transmission was shot and the original motor was stuck. So the previous owner scrapped them. I put a 1970's MG midget 1275 motor, rib cage and 4.22 rear gears in the van. The vehicle was pretty beat when i got it. I started at...

This caused the right side spring hanger to pull loose or droop down . The view from the top (after removing the seat) i could see a support about where the seam is loca...

The only thing i can read on the tag is the Z27253 the other side of the tag is covered with to much paint.

At least i remember to look - sorry i could not help more.
