This style of vehicle was the Morris Commercial J or JB Type.  The J Type was produced between 1949 to 1957 and the JB between 1957 and 1961.  The J Type is fitted with a 1476 cc four-cylinder side-valve engine, whilst the JB Type had an overhead valve 1489 cc, BMC B-Series engine.

These GPO vehicles were fitted with front and rear wings made of rubber.
Because of this the headlamps and sidelights are fixed to the side panel.
