Hello,

Are any of these still about?

If not, has anyone ever made a replica?

Doe's anyone have any technical data whatsoever on these vehicles ie dimensions, weight, engine capacity and power?

I have had an idea about perhaps attempting to replicate one, my good voice says "don't do it" my bad voice says "yes do it, do it!!"

The appeal to me is that it was a widely usd British built vehicle used in a variety of roles by just about all the armed forces.

Which voice should I listen to?

Cheers

You don't say what model of 15cwt Morris you are enquiring about, but they are fairly common in collectors hands. Go to any large show and you should see a few.

Can't see wht you would want to repro one apart from cost.

I note there is a 4X4 model for sale on Milweb at the monment.

Cheers

Garibaldino,

Reckon anything between £4 - 6000 for an up and running british 15cwt.

Not so many of them out there............... :wink:

Morris is nice,.............Bedford is better: :lol: :lol:


(I'm biased,........)

If you want any info on Bedford MW 15cwt, give me a shout.

All the best,

Andy


Just noticed your based locally,.....if you get up to chatham mil fair, see if the navy are wandering around, - Grey Funnel line,......they have a couple of Morris Comm's.

If you were to go for the Morris-Commercial: there is barely any engine spares around. A chap in Norway recently found some. You should be able to find him through either milweb or www.mapleleafup
I would go for the MC, not the Bedford.
But hey, I like British bikes too, including my Coventry built Triumph 3SW.

There's been an early MW going on E Bay recently,........looks good, excepting wrong air filter unit. Buy it now price £6000.
Bidding looks to have time expired, might be worth keeping an eye out, just in case it didn't sell.
