These images of a 1934 Morris Minor 5 cwt van clearly show two of the most significant differences between this model and those preceding it. The first of these is the “Eddyfree” van roof, which no longer overhangs the windscreen, thus enabling the uninterupted flow of air across the top of the van body. The second change concerns the van’s lower rear quarter, where the right-angular shape of the earlier body type has been replaced by a subtle curve which apparently serves no useful purpose, the change seemingly having been made for purely cosmetic reasons. Beech-Nut chewing gum was an American brand available in the UK throughout the middle decades of the twentieth century.
