Fifty years of good and loyal service and still a best seller
We are certain that when the first Transit was rolled into production on 9 August 1965, no one would have bet it would still be existing 50 years later.
According to Brian Eckersley the project manager for the 1965 Transit "The clay model in dark green looked like something from the US Air Force"
While at the origin the Transit was known as the V Series in the UK it was soon rebaptised as Transit.
It evolved so much that it almost doubled its space from 7.4m3 to over 15.
