Transit is present and correct

September 7, 2016

What do you get the man who has everything?

That was the challenge when Peter Lee – owner of the world’s largest Transit van collection – travelled with a convoy of six classic vans and friends from the Ford Transit Van Owners Club for a special visit to our European headquarters in Cologne, Germany.


The answer is a Transit van cushion, one of a handful of items not already in Peter’s 23,000-piece memorabilia collection that includes 6,000 model vans and nine full-sized Transits.

On the way, the group visited our Lommel Proving Ground in Belgium, and in Cologne they met with Transit fans from Germany and the Netherlands for a tour of the Classic Centre – home to rare models like our Taunus Transit fire truck.
