Video: Ford Transit Supervan
The Ford Transit Supervan first appeared at Brands Hatch in 1971. Essentially it was a GT40 chassis with a mid mounted 400hp Gurney Weslake V8, which powered the Mark 1 Transit to 60mph in seven seconds and on to a top speed of around 150 mph. Enjoy the video!
The machine was built for Ford by Terry Drury Racing and sported a 5-speed transmission, with fully independent suspension and brakes from the iconic Ford GT40.
