1971 Morris Minor Police Van - ex Gloucestershire Police. Badged as Austin 6cwt

-1275cc Twin carb engine

-5 speed ford gearbox

-front disc brakes

- MOT till January 2021

Real Life Classics are proud to offer this very rare and possibly the only remaining genuine ex-Police Morris Minor van.

The van was first registered on 1st April 1971 to Gloucestershire Police. I have a copy of the original VE60 hand written log book (see pic)

Since being released from the Police in the late 1970's it has had various owners until being restored by a Morris Minor Police enthusiast in the early 2000's. There are many features online of the van being displayed at shows and newspaper / magazine articles .

The van has a working blue lamp which is fixed but also an amber lens for road use. There is also a working siren and a period PYE westminster radio. The Police signage is magnetic

The van starts first turn of the key and the 1275cc engine sounds in very good health, with a nice sound from the twin carbs. The benefit of the 5 speed gearbox and front discs make for pleasant driving.

The bodywork is still in very good condition. The paintwork is also very good but as you can see from the pictures the front wings and doors are a slightly brighter white than the rear tub. The rear guttering is good but has had some paint over some obvious bubbling. There is a small area of paint peeled away on the rear left door. The doors front and rear are very good. The front wings are excellent. Underneath looks to be all solid and the van has been MOT'd for most years from 2005 having covered approx 10000 miles in that time. The rear load area is carpeted and clean.

All in all this is a very tidy example of a very rare little van. Perfect to improve as and when but certainly ready to use and guaranteed to turn heads.

We are British car enthusiasts and are always looking for similar examples to buy and sell.
