On the 9th August 1965, the first-ever Ford Transit rolled off the production line.
50 years on Ford have sold more than eight million globally, with more than a third of those in the UK alone.
The first Transit, a rear-wheel-drive van, was launched in 1965 with a basic design that carried on for more than twenty years. Now the Courier, Connect, Custom and Transit now make up the small-to-big van line-up with 600,000 a year built worldwide. It’s a far cry from the early days.
We LOVE Transits at Pye Motors, which is why we have a dedicated Transit Centre at our Morecambe branch...but don't worry if you can't get there as our other branches know their stuff too.
Did you know? We also offer customisation on our Transit's, perfect for your business vehicle.
