A solid base for conversion

A solid base for conversion

Throughout the entire development process, we worked closely with the bodybuilding industry to ensure that all standard body types, and most bespoke solutions, can be fitted easily and efficiently with little or no modification. With low frame rails, integral body mounting points and robust high tensile steel frame construction, Transit Chassis Cab provides a strong and reliable base for virtually any conversion.

Chassis features

     •  Flat, strong ladder-frame enables a wide range of body conversions to be fitted

     •  Four Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) variants, from 3,100 kg to 4,700 kg 

     •  350HD (Heavy Duty) version available for operators requiring greater trailer plate loading flexibility from a 3,500 kg GVM; 7,000 kg GTM vehicle

     •  Wheelbase and overhang dimensions suitable for industry-standard or non-standard body sizes

     •  Standard-width door mirrors accommodate body sizes up to 2,170 mm. Long arm mirrors are available for bodies up to the legal maximum of 2,438 mm. 

     •  Robust inverted closed ‘top hat’ section pressed high tensile steel frame (double ‘top hat’ for 350HD and 470 models)

     •  Integral body mounting points and bolt-on rear frame overhangs, where required

     •  Bolted closing member allows chassis length to be customised without welding

Ready for work straight from the factory

Transit Chassis Cab is designed and built for hard work. Its robust and rigid chassis provides an excellent foundation for fitting specialist bodies. For the convenience of operators who want a quick and simple solution, our factory-built Transit floats are supplied ready to work and comply with the latest European Community Whole Vehicle Type Approval (WVTA) legislation.

Room for the crew

Transit Chassis Double Cab is a great solution for moving both crew and load at the same time. Wide-opening doors provide easy access to the spacious, well thought-out interior. While the dual front passenger seat and standard rear quad seat together offer comfortable accommodation for up to seven occupants, including plenty of under seat stowage possibilities.

Towing ability

Transit Chassis Cab delivers outstanding payload and towing capability. The 350HD and 470 versions, with high-rated suspension and 7,000 kg Gross Train Mass, can pull up to 3.5 tonnes of braked trailer load, when properly equipped.Tooltip

Long service intervals for less time off the road

The advanced all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0-litre TDCi engines are durable and reliable, with longer service intervals of up to 60,000 kms, or two years, whichever occurs first. Along with this, components subject to normal wear and tear have also been designed to last longer without maintenance. It all helps ensure your Transit Chassis Cab won’t let you down.
