MORRIS J2 VAN
The Morris J2 van first launched in real life in 1956 by Morris Commercial, features in both Oxford’s 1:43 scale and 1:76 scale ranges. Here we see the J2 in 1:43 scale, appearing as a Minibus for the Kent-based London Skyways company, which started its cross-Channel operation in 1955. The minibus is decorated in the Skyways corporate colour scheme of pale blue, white and red and registered YLM 754. An unusual addition comprises the colourful roofboard in the shape of an airliner, promoting the company’s London to Paris trip by air and coach. Skyways operated out of Lympne Airfield, Kent, flying to Beauvais with supplementary coach travel between the English and French capital cities. A particular detail to note is the small logo on the tailfin with the French and British flags, an aircraft and a coach in opposite corners and the waves representing the English Channel in between. Even the fare is detailed - £7. 19s. 0d, still under £8 in today’s money!
THIS MODEL IS NEW BOXED IN MINT CONDITION.
