AJO 173 = Oxford, Dec 34 to March 35. Several 1930s xJO plates on Morrises were Cowley factory issues.

It looks like a 1935-38 Morris Eight Light Van (5-cwt) to me?

The bonnet side louvres and the angle between the windscreen and the top of the scuttle suggested otherwise to me.

Looking at the radiator grille and surround, the nearest I can find is the Morris Ten.

However the Morris grilles tend to have a more rounded 'V' shaped bottom and the van's grille has a straight bottom edge.

Could it be something other than a Morris perhaps?

I think I have answered my own doubts...

Morris Light Van 10-cwt as johnfromstaffs suggested. Morris Twelve-Four based

Bonnet louvres, windscreen, front end and grille all match.

The apparent straight bottom edge to the grille is because the bright outline to the number plate is covering the bottom of the grille. When compared to the picture above they are the same.

Hoping this is legible - scan of page 155 from "Morris - the cars and the company" by Jon Pressnell (2013)

Very legible thank you dsl. A lot of interesting detail, I'm always surprised how quickly some models were updated in to 1930s.

I've just sent off to Amazin' Books (or something like that) for a copy.

There was a very interesting documentary on the fish tank the other evening on the life of Henry Ford. It was almost eerie in how many ways his life and that of W R Morris paralleled each other. The curmudgeonly behaviour in later life which had a deleterious effect on their companies was common to both men, and they both had feet of clay, Morris probably being the winner by a neck in this race. Morris also lost out very badly in the crusty parent handicap, his handicap being the total lack of offspring. It seems that Henry only acknowledged Edsel's talents after his son's tragically early death. No way to behave.
