That said, the front panel is wrong. I do like the Morris face but actually the Austin 101 has a different face, like this example (below) and I may well simplify and speed up the restoration by having a simple back like this one with drop sides....
But I also like the idea of building a motorcycle chariot like this one by Harvey Pitcher of the J Type Register, which he sent me with a "how about building something like this"
I liked it in principle, but fancied doing it slightly differently. It would be designed with Francis Barnett livery to carry my FB Fulmar, a 1962 150cc; sort of a poor man's Ariel Arrow, and as it would have a comparatively more modern load, thought I might beef up the side and remove the hand rail.
(I include Harvey's original drawing and my modification of it with his permission.)
Though not nearly as elegant a rendering as Harvey's, my later alternative, photographed and modified above, has a rail line which follows the van's original swage line faithfully. Purists might prefer this idea?
Right now though, I am not worrying about the back at all. I am just concentrating on returning it to the road with restored cab, restored engine, running gear etc.
