1972 BMC JU 250EA Ambulance
Registration no. NBW 276L
Following the British Motor Corporation’s creation in 1952, both Austin and Morris continued commercial vehicle production separately until increasing rationalisation saw the BMC name adopted for 1969. One of the mainstays of Morris commercial production had been the forward-control J-Type van, first introduced in 1949 with sidevalve engine and three-speed gearbox. The model underwent continual development, gaining an ohv engine, four-speed ’box, unitary body/chassis, and diesel and automatic gearbox options as the years progressed, before arriving at its ultimate form – the 250 JU – in 1967. Built on a longer wheelbase than hitherto, the latter featured an under-floor engine and was offered as a van, pick-up or minibus. Badged as either ‘Austin’ or ‘Morris’ initially, the JU became ‘BMC’ for 1969 and then ‘Austin-Morris’ from 1970 when the range was face-lifted.
This JU ambulance was acquired from British Leyland in 1980. Offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed, it is ideal for conversion into a motor home or race-team support vehicle.
