1978 Ford Transit MK1


SOLD 1978 Ford Transit MkI

Finished in Ambassador Blue, this famous commercial has featured a number of times on Yorkshires most famous TV series Heartbeat. This perfect advertising commercial retains its siren and blue lamp, etc. Introduced in 1965, the MKI Transit followed the far less popular 400E. Initially fitted with the V4 petrol, a diesel option soon followed in the form of a 2.5L York. These were notoriously difficult to start. NOT THIS ONE - the best starting York powered Transit we've handled.
