BMC Sanayi TM 30 Kapali / Kamyonet
In 1964 a Turkish truck-building company (BMC Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S.) was set up at Izmir (birthplace of Alec Issigonis, incidentally) in partnership with BMC to build Austin and Morris trucks under licence.
The company later became independent of British Leyland, but has retained its BMC name; indeed, its recent establishment of a distribution network in the UK has seen the BMC name re-appear here after an absence of around 30 years…
Below is a brochure (supplied by Graham Arnold), which shows off the company’s version of the trusty Leyland/Austin-Morris Sherpa van.
With thanks to Graham Arnold for scanning and submitting this brochure.
