Morris Minor LCV 1952 - 1956 (O-type)
In 1953 a new wooden-bodied traveller was introduced along with the LCV models in Van or Pickup form. The split screen and 'cheese grater grille continued although the bonnet of the commercials were not given the large mazak 'handle' and continued with the simple chrome strip instead. In 1954 the grille was changed to one with horizontal bars. The British Post Office had a different specification, with one half of the split front windscreen being openable, and some vans had rubber front wings to survive the bumps of city driving. In 1956 the Series III Minor was launched with curved windscreen and bigger rear window; and 948cc engine.

Morris Minor Series II LCV 1955. The Minor LCVs (or O-types) were upgraded at the same time as car versions, so acquired the horizontal grille bars in 1954 with the rest of the Series II. The distinct opening split screen given to Post Office vans would not survive the 1956 Series III upgrade.
