Classic Commercials to Roll up to Heritage Motor Centre

Classic Van & Pickup Show

The Heritage Motor Centre is to host a brand new show on Sunday 10 August for light commercial vehicles including vans, pickups, campers and “working” cars such as classic taxi’s and police cars. The ‘Classic Van & Pickup Show’ will also incorporate the Transit Van Clubs annual Rally which takes place on the 9 & 10 August.

In excess of 300 vehicles including limousines and hearses from the Classic Hearse Register are expected to take part. The Post Office Vehicle Club will also be staging a large exhibition of Post Office related vehicles including some very rare rubber winged Morris GPO vans. The Morris J Type Register will have a number of Morris J type vans at the show alongside the more normal Ford Transit type vans that are associated with the Light Commercial Vehicle scene. There are also a couple of restoration projects being trailered to the event to show ‘the before side’ of restoration.

All classic light commercial vehicles including custom street vans are welcome, no matter what the make or their condition.

Tom Caren, Show Manager for the Heritage Motor Centre stated “This is a first in the UK to host a show dedicated solely for light commercial vehicles up to 4/5 tonnes. All Fords vans are welcome at the Ford Transit Rally, whether it’s a classic, modern or custom van. The Transit Van Club Rally, which is now in its 10th year, is going from strength to strength”.

Tickets for the Show & Rally cost £12 for adults, £8 for children and £34 for a family. Discounted tickets are available in advance online.
