The last of the classic model Ford Transit, a bus derivative, was driven off the production line at Ford's Southampton plant Friday (21/07/00). This will make way for the all-new Ford Transit short and medium wheelbase models which the plant will start to build in the late summer. The Ford Transit bus will be donated by the plant to the Mansbridge Minibus Association, a local charity organisation, members of which will be on hand to join in the celebrations and to pick up their new vehicle. Another Ford Transit will be donated to a local school or charity through a prize draw. Applicants will write into the plant, all of the entries will be collated and the winner will be drawn from among them.
