Finally got the website fixed, after much online correspondence with hosting provider's support team. Gallery seems to work now, but probably needs updating. That will take time, and the acquisition of some new photos. So if you have example of old, or re-furbed Morris Commercial vehicles, please mail them to morriscommercialclub@hotmail.co.uk

Hi - Thanks for the notification re Gallery. I'll have to look at this. We have just switched our website hosting provider, so something was lost in the transfer. Hope to get it fixed by week's end.

Thanks,
Now a New request; The gallery doesn't seem to be working, at least for me, but I'd like to get a close up picture of the point where the front guards meet the cab. Is there supposed to be some sort of welting right there like on my old MG? There was a bit of hardened rubber trim where the bonnet closes down to the fender, but nothing at the actual cab joint. If I can't have a photo, can someone direct me to where I can find this information?

Cheers,
Tom

Hello Morriecommkiwi

You have got a good deal on the bits and bobs, which in UK currency amounts to around £115.

Very often when deceased estates are selling thing off, they just want to rid of things, and they don’t know the value.

If you were in the UK, selling those items on as spares you would probably make a profit.

Regarding the value of your running but not restored LC5, here in the UK it would probably be around £3K, which converts to around 6,500 NZ dollars.

However, the New Zealand market is not the same as the UK market, so your LC5 could be worth a completely different amount.

Remember, if you find any Morris J vans in NZ, they are in great demand over here. A rough but complete, J van can go for £10K or more. I.e. 21,000NZ Dollars. This is because the ice cream sellers like them for use on tourists pitches where the local authority insist that only an historic vehicle can be used. Mind you, when they have got hold of them, during the conversion process, all bodywork rearwards of the front windscreen is cut off and thrown away. For a non- ice cream owner, they are small enough to fit in most domestic garages.

If you find a J van in your travels, it could be well worth to get it shipped over to the UK in a container.

The club would be quite happy to advertise one in the clubs magazine.

Regards

Nigel

Regarding LC5 values: Keep your eyes open fellows. I just acquired a ton of LC5 parts from a deceased estate. I now have two front fenders (1 new) the petrol tank, bonnet and grille, both doors with windows in place. A box of new old stock parts including valves and guides, enough gears and shafts to rebuild the gearbox that was included, a second hand distributor, brake hoses and wheel cylinders,and other assorted bits and bobs. Sadly, the steering box wasn't there or the engine, and someone else got the diff. I had no room for the cab and chassis so they went elsewhere but the interior panels were in very good nick. I paid $250.00 NZ. How much should I assign to my already running but not restored/rebuilt LC5?

Hello Jenson.

There was an LC5 auctioned at Malvern show last year. It went for 4500 GBP. So this will give you an indicator value. Bear in mind that most LC5 owners will probably place their own value, on their individual vehicle.
