    1963 Ford Taunus Transit & 1956 Anglia 100E

    My true love is a 1963 Ford Taunus Transit FK1250 which I imported from Germany on 27th December 2007. The bus has a 4cyl 1500cc petrol engine which produces 55bhp in original form, so who knows how many horses are left today ?

    I also have a 1956 Ford Anglia 100E , which I bought for Nicola, my best half, who I will marry in August 2010 as she is a petrol head too (Lucky me)

    Here they are both in front of Nicola's place on the way to the www.medwaymonkeys.co.uk get together. Medway Monkeys is an ofshoot of Oldskool Ford and local, with great and helpfull people.

    Good spot there.

    Ford Poached the Herr Doktor Professor from VW to design that Transit.

    Interesting that the name then seems to have been used in the 50's already by the Germans for their van.

    Originaly with a 1000kg payload, and 1200cc engine, mine is a FK1250, so a bit more capacity.

    Have to say, I like the obscurity of the bus, and its nice having something not strangled to death by a "scene" where good resto busses now can hit close to £30k .

    Hi Stevie, take a look in the "Garage" forum on here, there is a link to what happened to that Gulf liveried bus....

    Trust me though, it was the right thing to do for the right reasons, the previous owner and current converter is my best mate.
