Eight/Minor 5cwt Van (GPO Minor 35 cu ft)

Produced for the GPO, the Eight/Minor Hybrid van, had the “look and feel” of the Minor vans to which its postal workers, telephone engineers and the public were accustomed.  Whilst having the cosmetic appearance of a Minor van, this hybrid vehicle used the chassis and running gear of the Eight and Eight Series 1 models.  Production continued until the introduction of the Eight Series Z van, which the GPO also purchased in large numbers for postal & telephone service use.  Although most of the vehicle was Eight based, the van with its Minor radiator was known by the GPO as the Minor 35 cu ft.
