Interesting van based on the Traveller... Only in DK?

Never seen this version before. 1962+ for large sidelights and possibly 1968-ish onwards for grey-painted rims. Apart from the side window the other odd thing is to see a Traveller body without over-riders. Probably worth indexing Varevogn. Also visible in /vehicle_379867-Volkswagen-Typ-2-T1.html .

Is this a Varevogn, a Stationcar or a 3rd variety? We have 2 other Varevogns, but they are both van bodies, and one Stationcar which is a normal windowed Traveller.

Edit: this is apparently a Morris 1000 Super Combi - "Another Danish offering, this time achieved by panelling-in the standard Traveller's rear side windows and removing the rear seats" - from http://www.aronline.co.uk/denmarkf.htm or http://www.aronline.co.uk/ and search on Denmark if the correct page does not come up.

Correction - the bigger front sidelights introduced Oct 63 for 1964my. And this is Morris 1000 Super Combi as my link above.

I've got a book reference that these were made in DK. Details are a bit vague for detail, but there was CKD assembly of light commercial Minors by DOMI (presumably vans and pick-ups, including a unique long body "De Luxe" van) from early/mid-50s until well into 60s; DOMI were the BMC importers based at Glostrup near Copenhagen. Saloons and normal Travellers were imported fully built, with the normal Traveller sold as Morris 1000 Stationcar and then Morris 1000 Super Stationcar from 1962 when 1098cc engine fitted. The Combi went through the same 1000/1000 Super sequence, but was much more than just a window-panelling exercise with extensive alterations to create a rear load bay - seat removal (with a fold-down rear seat available as option), wooden internal panelling - so it became a proper van within a Traveller exterior. They were popular and sold well until 1969 when the "parrot plate" tax regime was abolished, but it is not quite clear whether imported Travellers were converted in DK or came over as kits for CKD assembly into Combis; however I think made in DK is appropriate for either process.

:beer: Thanks for the confirmation! I was always wondering, why you see so many Minors in DK. That they are locally assembled, I've heard only as a rumour many years ago.
