I think that when you are importing one from Tasmania just because it's an unusual colour combination then it's getting toward obsession.

Great work though!

Hmmm, 

 I think you might have a point there!................... :)

I'm sure I saw this on the back of a trailer just the other day being towed by a newer van.. East Tamaki perhaps? can't remember as I've been around a bit the last few days.

Funny thing is I noticed it, thought that's an odd colour, then thought of you & wondered if it was one of your vans cos you're the only one I know who collects them haha

fuck me!!! anyone that has a mk1 or mk2 transit is going to have to start locking them away you wont be able to stop yourself you will just be climbing into random transits and driving off in them to some underground vault cave system somewhere remote.Parking them in parade calling them me precious and being overly cautious of visitors and people looking to find there long lost love a bit like the lad in wolf creek...........mick taylor!!!!!

 

seriously cool find and story looks the part in the that colour almost makes you wonder what other colours the graphics and vans lend themselves too 

how about metallic olive green with sundowner graphics in flourescent green or gold metallic stripes the combinations are endless.

look forward to seeing it progress

Hahaa!  How is  Peter's Transit collection going? 

They were available in a range of colours, with two tone green, or orange/red stripes. This is the first one I have seen with blue stripes. I have emailed Ford Australia to find out some more history on it. They seem to be pretty good at responding to request from owners of old Fords for information.

yeeessss thats the green i had in mind for the sticker will go away and google pics now.

Ah petes given up on the transits now i think the white jumbo put him off transits lol!!! his old mk2 with the v8 he bought off greg goudie went through a few hands and ended up in christchurch as tow vehicle for mcivors mk2 rally car.

The jumbo i took out for blast around the block two weeks ago was the first time it was started in a year i think its a pity but he hasnt been competing and it was built for tow vehicle for escort.

keep up the good work look forward to seeing this one when its to your liking came up well with a buff....

yep that Jumbo was a mission and a half wasn't it? Looks good though, he should be happy with that.
