Ford Celebrates 45 Years Of The Transit - Web Exclusive

FORD CELBRATES 45 YEARS OF THE TRANSIT

Jul 29, 2010

Ford's iconic Transit has a significant birthday next month, celebrating 45 years of great success in Europe. The Transit was the pioneer of the ubiquitous white van. At launch, the cheapest Transit, a short wheelbase, gas-engine van cost around $850 US dollars. The most expensive Transit was a 15-seat bus which cost around $1500. From 78 derivatives in 1965, there are now more than 600 Transit entities, providing a range of dedicated commercial vehicles to ensure there is a model for every job required.

Today's Transit continues to represent great value. A special edition "Sapphire" went into production in England this year to mark 45 years of success. The Sapphire develops more power and torque, has longer service intervals.

Transit is one of the most successful Ford nameplates in the world. It's exported to virtually every country in the world. Since its launch in '65 more than six million Transits have been built at 22 factories across the world.
