Details: Here is another type of vehicle that will no doubt be seen a lot more in the future. The latest redesign of the Ford Transit has changes confined to the bonnet and front grille, but the result is a quite different looking vehicle. The first example to be noted in connection with LTSVs was this crew-cab chassis seen leaving Acton Works on trade plates on 23rd August 2006. Given that most Transit-sized vehicles are now leased and would not be likely to visit Acton prior to bodying, it seems probable that this was an example borrowed for evaluation.

RayPerhaps 6794F looks something like this?Sun 25/04/2010, 10:10
Thomas YoungI doubt it somehow. Even if they acquired a plain chassis cab for training purposes, I am sure they would not bother to number it. I think the problem is that the descriptions on the official list are somewhat variable. My guess is that 6794F actually has some bodywork, perhaps an access hoist?Sun 25/04/2010, 12:44
