  1. yes it did. I put a little poster on each of the side windows telling its life story, and I think a lot of people enjoy that. I was walking past at one point and overheard one guy say to his friend "it's the Westside van!" World famous in Noo Zulland!

  3. completed last week, and took it to the Auckland All Ford Day on Sunday Browndog's 1972 V8 Transit - Page 3 - Project Discussion - oldschool.co.nz
  4. I thought it was time for an update. Been a bit busy on other things, so the Mk1 has not had a lot of attention lately. But just cracked into it a week or two ago, and it is nearing completion now. Lots of NOS parts being fitted, which is always fun. A few pics to show the progress.
  5. I spent a few hours today bolting on some parts; lots of NOS parts which I have been collecting for this project. Headlights temporarily fitted, new bezels, bumpers, clear front indicators, tail lights and rear reflectors. The headlights I bought a few years ago are an interesting thing for trainspotters like myself; a pair of Cibie Biodes. Invented in the late 1960's, before the H4 dual filament halogen bulb was invented, they take 2x H1 halogen bulbs.

  8. Merry Christmas everyone! I picked up my Christmas pressie on the 24th, after months of being at the paint shop. It has been painted Ford :"Ermine White" although it does appear more creamy than I think it probably should be. No matter, I am quite happy with the result, it has been many years, decades actually, since this van was one solid colour!
  9. I checked up on the Mk1 yesterday. Panelbeater is doing a great job, and it is getting very close to final paint!
  10. yep mine was the same colour, same engine etc as that one. But none of the sound equipment! I did the YB conversion on that wagon too, I had forgotten about it to be honest!
  11. I removed the Cossie engine and sold it separately, put the awful twin cam back in, then sold the car! I think it is still around?
  12. I had one of these (actually I have had several!) but the last one I had was the most memorable. Magenta in colour, I removed the horrible 8V twin cam and repowered it with a YB Cosworth, put the Cossie suspension in, with Escort Cosworth wheels. Boost turned up a bit, it was pretty badass.
