The J2 range was announced in June 1956 with a wheelbase of 7ft 6 ins and rated at 15 cwt. The van cost £554 and the 12 seater minibus £625, if you wanted heaters it would cost you £11 extra. The cab had two front panel designs to provide the Morris J2 and Austin 152 version which was a policy adopted by BMC. The van could be specified with either sliding or hinged cab doors, single or sliding rear doors. By 1965 the Morris front panel was dropped and the Austin front panel was adopted for both versions.
