Ford Custom Van in pristine white – a must for all lightweight commercial van enthusiasts, for whom the ubiquitous white van is a necessity or for those wishing to customise their models.
In real life, the Custom was launched at the 2012 Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham, when it was classed as a mid-size front wheel drive vehicle, a smaller version of the Ford Transit Mk 8. Still in production today, the original 2.2 turbo diesel powered van is now available as a plug in hybrid version powered by a Ford Ecoboost petrol engine and a 13.6kWh electric battery. As with other Ford Transit models, there is a choice of two chassis lengths and two roof heights as well as being easily adapted for cargo and passenger use. There is also the choice of a 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox. Since its introduction, the Ford Custom van, with its characteristic wedge-shaped sloping bonnet, has seen one or two upgrades in its recent history. Our model is based on the original and is registered MA16 XLV from 2016.
It simplicity emphasises the detailed tooling elements of the model, which features contrasting black trim to wheels, radiator grille and bumpers and the familiar Ford badge finished in blue and silver. The interior is moulded in a contrasting dark grey.
