FORD TRANSIT MKI LONDON FIRE BRIGADE
Ford of Europe started manufacturing their Ford Transit in 1965 and the vehicle has remained as one of their leading models over the years, evolving during that time to clock up over 8 million sales to date.
Our 1:76 scale replica of the first Ford Transit, the Mark 1, is registered KLU 69D from 1966 and is decorated in the bright red colour scheme of a London Fire Brigade support vehicle from that period. A tooling modification sees the addition of a blue roof beacon centred above the cab mounted on a silver and red base. The Brigade crest is printed on both cab doors while the London Fire Brigade wording features on each side in gold. The interior is completely black while the exterior sees bumpers, wheels and wheel hubs finished in white. Much of the exterior trim is sprayed black although the wing mirrors and door handles have been given a silver finish.
It’s a great little fire support vehicle to add to any enthusiast’s collection, particularly those of you who specialise in London liveries.
