    The old ones were brilliant, it's just a shame since they moved production to Turkey that within a month of launching a new model or update all the security flaws are across the net. Almost as if they don't have an anti virus suite or pay the staff over there enough.

    I think so, Top Gear paid homage to it and it's history 😉

  • Excellent video, loved the narration…. Love this new format…. I hope more such videos would be produced and released in YouTube.

    Driven all new vans. Think the new Transit is a bit shit. Sprinters have been the best for a good while.

    Did anyone else see the Supervan with the “V6” that looked a lot like a V8?

    Why do the British always claim that Ford's history is part of their history??? It's an american brand, learn up.

    Ford really has some iconic popular cars. The F150 in the US, the Focus worldwide, the Transit in UK. Etc. The man eating Mustang worldwide but my favorite is still the glove wearing man's favorite car, the Bronco.

    amazing achievement and don't mean to burst the bubble, but in my a view a supervan must be able to function as a van

    These old Mk1 Tranists can still be seen on roads of Pakistan converted into passenger vehicles. But now they are being replaced with newer vans.

    BBC please stop with the perpetuating of the the myth that Ford is somehow still British . The transit hasn't been made here for nearly 20 years . It's made in Turkey .
    Ford don't make anything here now apart from a few engines . And as to the Transit delivering stuff ,.lost stuff I have delivered is delivered in Mercedes Sprinter probably now the most popular Van . This is exactly why I don't bother with Top Gear anymore .
    Stuck in the imagined past of UK motoring that just doesn't exist anymore .

    I've grown up in the middle seat of a MK5 transit. I remember playing with the clock on the dash with my toes because I was so small. Some really great memories of going to car shows and work in the same van.

    The VW Transporter is far superior and drives like a car, not a van.

    Probably an ok vehicle in the UK but in Australia they're the biggest heap of junk ever imported. The only decent Transit is one that's had a V8 conversion. Funnily enough, I would love to find an earlier one and do an LS swap!

    Well,this thing moves Britain. Few hours earlier,a guy came to install some furniture at my house… a Transit. It's a legend.

    The Transit was/is top-gear.

    I’m pleased that you said traffic moved more gently, because you can not compare a 65 transit to modern vehicles, at the time, it was cutting edge, so what’s basic by today’s standard, was just the ticket and what was needed in 65, worlds best selling van, enough said
