Morris J Royal Mail Van - 260

 

The Morris Commercial J van in Royal Mail livery was in the Dinky catalogue from 1955 to 1961. Surprisingly Dinky only released the van in this one livery. It was such a common sight on British roads in all sorts of tradesman's colours that it would have been possible to get a lot more mileage than this from the casting - I guess all that work went the way of the Bedford CA Van. It may be that the Morris J2 was introduced very shortly after this model of its predecessor in the Morris range entered the Dinky range - although flogging obsolete cars and vans never usually bothered the boys at Meccano.
