* Good original condition bodily and mechanically
* Lightly used and low mileage ex-fire service van
* Twin wheel heavyweight chassis


The Ford Transit was a revolution in light commercial design, with its high load capacity, enabled by its wide track, gutsy V4 engines and excellent handling it became a favourite of tradesmen and also bank robbers, being able to outrun most of the Police vehicles of the early 1960s.

This ex-fire service Transit Mk1 is in very good condition, having seen very little use and having been off the road for many years. With its twin side doors and twin wheel heavy duty chassis, it would make an excellent period towing and support vehicle for historic motorsport campaigns. The van is running well but we understand that the brakes will require some attention and general recommissioning following a period of storage. Running and driving it will need some recommissioning prior to active use following a period of storage.
