'Royal Male' Minor

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis



This is a van I'd love to know more about. Spotted at last Sunday's New Malden Krispy Kreme meet, it appears at first glance to be a tidy, well restored old Morris commercial. But the closer you look, the more clues it reveals that all is not as it seems: the banded steels with their wide rubber, the vast radiator lurking behind that satin black grille... and then you get to the rear and spot the twin exhausts and the drag-spec twin-shock setup. Naughty.
I was having a poke around when Campervan's Steve Prior wandered over and said he'd heard rumours of a separate chassis and a full-blown V8. Which all sounds very exciting. Anyone care to venture some details...?
