Austin 6cwt Pickup

This is a vehicle photographed in September 1995 at Heaton Park at the Trans Lancs Historic Vehicle Rally organised by the Greater Manchester Transport Society.
It appears to be a Morris ¼ ton Pickup, but you can see that it's got an Austin badge and is the much rarer Austin 6cwt Pickup. Both Morris and Austin were part of the British Motor Corporation (BMC) together with MG, Riley and Wolseley. The British car-buying public had a tendency of loyalty to a particular marque and most BMC models were marketed bearing the badge of more than one of the traditional marques.
