I would say this conversion was fairly easy and probably only involved fitting a timber framed load box over the rear chassis. The rear seats were not always fitted as standard (they were actually optional extras). The shorter front hood was also an option available from BMC-Austin/Morris.

This level of 'conversion' could have been carried out by anybody, I believe, not necessarily a bodywork maker.

Given that LYP 794D appeared a couple of years later in this episode: /vehicle_288686-Morris-Mini-Moke-1966.html, I would say that LYP 792D is also part of the BMC press fleet, but it is strange that it carries a London, rather than a Birmingham registration.

Episode filmed January 1967.
