This angular fibreglass body was produced by M&M Electric Vehicles of Atherstone, the company which took over Morrison in 1983. It was fitted to many older Morrison chassis, either because the old bodywork was worn out, or in some cases simply to modernise the float's appearance. Dairy Crest's UJW 755G is a typical example.

During 2002 Express Dairies in Birmingham disposed of a number of Morrisons as surplus, many of which had been rebodied with the new M&M cab. 289 VP is one such vehicle, seen following withdrawal. Photo by Dave Root.

Another of the former West Midlands floats, 244 DUK was purchased by the editor of this website for preservation but due to loss of suitable storage it was later sold to a cycling group. It was previously used in Wolverhampton. Photo by Dave Root.

8440 UK, another re-cabbed example, displays Avonmore's seven "commandments" of quality service on the transparent sticker with red and black lettering which may be seen on its windscreen. It subsequently went north to work for a furniture maker in the West Lothian area. Photo by Dave Root.
