Since its launch in 1965 the Ford Transit has proved exceptionally versatile. The extensive combination of wheelbase and body styles has helped the Ford Transit remain at the top of the sales charts for 45 years.

A key benefit of any Ford Transit is its excellent load carrying capability, as seen in this week’s image as handlers at Regents Park Zoo transport two baby elephants in 1965. Over the decades Ford Transits have been used as giant drink cans, space-age vehicles and monster trucks.

Later this year all Ford Transits will have Stage V emission level engines, offering improved fuel economy and a diesel particulate filter, with vaporiser technology that collects over 95 per cent of all engine soot emissions. Additionally, all Stage V engines will now have a variable nozzle turbo that boosts low-end torque and improves driveability as well as reducing emissions.

One thing that won’t be changing is the adaptability of the Ford Transit, ensuring that even if you don’t want to move elephants, Ford Transit owners still enjoy plenty of trunk space.
