BUILDER: JOHN COURT FROM: UK
“THE TRANSIT WILL BE ON THE ROAD SOON, AND I PLAN TO USE IT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE”
Planned spec: restored, 2.5di engine, five- speed
What’s the story: Restoring an early Transit can be a hard slog, with finding parts and panels one of the hardest challenges, though not for John with his new project though, as he explains:
“I can’t take credit for the paint job as it was already done when I got it, and it came with everything else in boxes and bags!”
“It’s a 1972 truck, and has been fitted with a later 2.5 diesel and five- speed ’box, so it should drive very well. I intend to have it on the road soon and will use it as much as possible.” Good find, John!
Richard bought this Transit project already painted. Lucky! BUILD 80% COMPLETE
