I thought I had started a thread on this van a few years ago but can't find it.
Unfortunately life got in the way and I wasn't able to take it any further than dismantling, collecting some parts and removing some minor rust.
I had to move it along to someone who could bring it back to it's former glory.
A fellow from England bought it and it is presently on a boat from ON to UK
New owner has already acquired a Heritage Cert.   was built on 16-03-1961, exported to CA, colour "primer", Heater, less windscreen washers (odd)
(wasn't sure which forum to list under )  Hopefully pics attached


Nice that it is going back to its home country.   

No washers, eh?  Cost saving measure?
1988 Austin Mini
2002 MINI Cooper S
1992 Toyota LiteAce (JDM)
1997 Jeep Wrangler Sahara


Also interesting that the color was listed as "primer".


I had a 68 Van that also had 'Primer' listed as it's colour as well.  They probably came over as fleet vehicles to be painted to company colours once they arrived.
