    Paperback
    The Ford Transit is one of the most successful commercial light vans of all time and it has been the bestselling light van in Europe for over forty years. In this concise and invaluable book, the author, an acknowledged expert on Transits, discusses the entire Transit range, including the wide variety of body types, from 1965 to the present day. He also looks at the future for the Transit. The author shows how the Transit's success was partly due to innovation. It had a wider wheelbase than other vans when launched; it was the first van to have a radio; the first van to have disc brakes; the first van to have a laminated windscreen, seat belts, servo-assisted brakes and so on. Written by a leading expert and promoter of the Ford Transit and including over 150 previously unpublished photographs and about fifty rare designs, this book is an essential read for anyone with an interest in the history of Ford Transits and of light commercial vehicles.
