Ford 100E Thames Van

Ford 100E Thames 7cwt Van
1958 Ford 100E Thames 7cwt Van. Formerly part of the 'Gates Collection' (Ford Main dealers). Super little van restored by Gates using genuine Ford parts. The 100E Van was an all time favorite work horse. It rarely broke down & would go any where. With foot flat to the floor, given a long enough road would top 80mph. Sold.
