WTF? It says that Transits got an all GRP body apart from the front end. Never seen one like that before! Guess that's why it looks so solid.

Sounds like bollocks to me, GRP bodies for the MOD only? WTF? Guess Fred will have the final say on this though.

Tis the stuff of legend, I never saw one myself before this was on the last time (seem it's now been robbed of it's V4 and auto). Legend has it it was made for the bomb squad during the IRA era, something to do with the large amount of metal present in a normal transit set off the unstable IRA bombs.

Spoke to someone today who was in the bomb squad during the IRA era and he said this was utter rubbish, if anything the vehicles they used tended to be armour plated or specialist military vehicles.

You surprise me on that one, this van turning up sort of confirmed it for me. Wonder what it's really for then? It sort of made sense.
A transit's for life, not just for Christmas
