1932 Minor 5 cwt van

Vans undeservedly feature infrequentlyhere. After all, the 5cwt van was the second best selling pre-war Minor model, outselling the two-seater car versions with almost 10,000 of them fnding customers in their five year production life.

This 1932 model was operated by the Electricity Department of Salford City Council and was registered as RJ 419 in the early part of that year. It’s interesting to note that this particular local authority were in the electrical equipment rental business. Perhaps that was not unusual in the early part of the thirties decade?
