Who's got oldest and latest Transit

Postby Luke » Wed Apr 23, 2008 4:53 pm

who's got the oldest and latest transit :?:

see if we can go through all mk's and get a list of the 1st and last regestered in each mk

to be fair we'll go on the date regestered on the log book :!:

i'll start it off with some of mine just to give people an idea how it works, i know they can be beaten so if yours is older or newer copy/paste the list and delete the one you beat and write yours there :D by all means chat on this thread but try to keep the list in one piece :lol:

also we'll stick to vans currently still around and that you own - ie. not ones you had and scrapped years back :D

Our luton was ordered in 1985, was sent to have the chassis extended (Chassis Services of Lieghton Buzzard), delivered (unregistered), then the company went bust. The liquidators eventually waited until the E reg came in to register her, and then she was sold as part of the liquidation.

The stretched panel van started life a regular twin wheeler. The one bearing the number plate and another one were cut in half in 1979, on a bus stop in Archway North London as legend has it, and then it was stretched!

I have seen a D reg, and a few other E regs (another luton, 2 chassis cabs with rubbish cages and a parcel van), but never an F reg.
Oh, and we were at a shoot in heartfordshire and a bloke in a Mk5 pulled up and said he had driven the luton about in the late 80s early 90s, we had even put fake plates on her but he recognised the size of the body! :lol:

I am waiting to see if there is an earlier 78 S reg.
