Thank you very much for the information, the idea that I have is to put a 2.5 di engine with gearbox and everything. By the rack key can you know which model is exactly?

I would like to leave it of origin (color of tires and fenders) but to maintain the raised ceiling that was put in France.

For the dashboard and the steering wheel I think it's one of the range 71 but I'm not sure.

Rack key number, (chassis number, which should also be on manufactures plate,(vin plate)) will tell you what model, year, engine, transmission ,plant of manufacture etc.
Yours looks after 71, black grill,door handles,headlight trim (if original) were on later Mk1’s, few years on from 71, more mid 70s-78 I think.( actually looked at full resolution photo, front doors look like they might of been changed, the black handles are mk2 handles ,dash is after 71...)
Is it Spanish registered?

For the dashboard and the steering wheel I think it's a version 71. It was gasoline and the diesel changed the front. I think that to repair it I need the back corners from top to bottom, the rear flaps down and the front steps, the rest can get ready and the back doors and the capo I found it used in Spain.

The van was white originally, I guess ford white diamond and I do not know if in the year 70 also combine with the tires and white fenders. The bride would like to leave it as the picture that I put you but I do not know if it corresponds the combination of colors with the date of mine.

Also I leave a picture of the dashboard for you to go because I thought it would be a range 71.

it has a pedal box in, and the switches indicate 71 -72 onwards but these could have been changed in its lifetime

GB means that it was Ford Germany, built in Genk
81 says that it is LWB

If there are other details on the chassis plate I can see if they show any other info like colour.

It looks like the bumper is from flat front so it could have been originally a flat front converted to a bull nose or someone just had a flat front bumper spare if the bull nose bumper was damaged. Is the chassis rail across the front straight or does it follow the shape of the bull nose ?

The van was 1.6 v4 petrol engine and flat nose, the owner told me that by putting the diesel sofim put the nose of the diesel. The stringer that goes from toe to toe if it is curved as the grill. Did not know the defenses were different. I found a mk2 short chassis for a sheet metal donor. Do all the sheet metal panels except the nose serve me? I would like to put a 2.5 di because the york 2.4 are not easily found, the supports serve me those of an mk5?
