Mk1 Tran­sit

BUILDER: JOHN COURT FROM: UK

Classic Ford - - READERS PROJECTS SPECIAL -

“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
