|1975||Ford||Transit||59,579 (Not Warranted)||£2000 + buyers premium|
Condition and Project Status: This 1975 Ford Transit represents an interesting blend of styles, combining a MK I body with a late 70’s/MK II facelift. The vehicle was in the midst of a camper conversion project, featuring a side window and initial work in the rear for camper accommodations. However, the project was left incomplete after the owner’s passing. As a result, it requires substantial work to finish the camper conversion, engine tuning for optimal performance, interior and wiring work, and a brake overhaul since the current brakes are not in a working order.
Practicality Over Glamour: This Transit isn’t a showpiece; it’s a restoration and conversion project. It has potential, but it’s far from turn-key. If you’re looking for a restoration project this winter for a practical and functional van this would be a good choice
Mix of Styles: The blend of MK I and MK II Transit elements gives this vehicle a somewhat unconventional appearance. It’s a unique project that combines elements of the old and the new.
Auctioneer’s Perspective: This Transit represents an unfinished goal. The original owner had ambitious plans for it, but due to unfortunate circumstances, the project was left hanging. This van is suitable for someone who is genuinely dedicated to restoring and completing the camper conversion. It’s a winter project that will require a lot of work and investment.
Auction Information: If you’re up for the challenge, this 1975 Ford Transit will be auctioned in our Autumn Classic Sale. It’s a great opportunity for those with the skills and commitment to bring this van to life.
