This is a very rare example at the first production Ford to solely wear the “Transit” badge and was built in Ford’s Cologne plant in Germany. It is the last production year and was imported to the US in 2020 by its current owner and registered with a clean California title paid through January 2023. It is the only one known to exist in North America. This has been to several car shows and is a major head-turner, especially for its similarity in the classic Type 2 VW bus.
The vehicle comes with original paperwork from Germany, served as an original emergency vehicle in the 60’s and was owned by a classic car dealership for nearly 20 years before it came to California. This is an incredibly fun ride and is always a showstopper wherever it goes.
In 1951 Ford Werke AG launched the FK commercial vehicle series, FK standing for Ford Köln, with different-sized vehicles (FK2000 with 2 tons payload, FK3000 with 3 tons payload, FK3500 with 3,5 tons payload, etc.). The FK series was successor of the “Rhein” and “Ruhr” trucks. In 1953, the FK series were rounded off with the light delivery van FK1000/FK1250 (1ton/1,25tons payload), in competition to the Volkswagen Type 2 VW Bus, the DKW Type F89L Schnellaster.
