OREANDA-NEWS. August 21, 2015. Ford of Britain will head to the CarFest South automotive festival later this month with its Cosworth-powered Transit Super Van 3 to continue celebrations of its star commercial vehicle’s 50th birthday.

Ford’s newest Transit – a 2015 Custom Sport Van painted gold to mark the half century – will join the convoy behind the 1994 Super Van, capable of 150mph thanks to its 295 horsepower supercharged Ford Cosworth Pro Sports 3000 engine.

Another 50-year-old Ford icon will also capture attention with a Mustang cabriolet model leading the Ford parade.

Transit Owners Club members will also be at the event from August 28 to 30, with a display of significant vans to mark the anniversary of the start of Transit production in August 1965.

As well as seeing vans new and old, families at motoring’s newest festival will spot Ford’s latest “MAX” family of stylish, practical and dynamic multi-purpose vehicles.

At CarFest North at Oulton Park, earlier this month, almost ?2,500 was raised by Ford’s precision driving team for the Children in Need charity.
