Ford ... type Cologne

ER Classics Desktop 2022

This predecessor of the Ford Transit got its name because it was assembled in the German city. The ambulance implementation will no longer be the result of an urgent phone call, and yet it seems that it can still be considered for a next life. The bonnet rests next to the car, the seat is probably intended as a moment of rust (rust). The front window is missing, so you could still feel the essence of driving open: wind through your hair, watery eyes and cold ears ... And if it doesn't work, it will still be fun to look back on this special - probably thirsty - Ford Cologne. Dirk de Jong.

  1. Hallo,

    I am about 35 years ago with the restoration of a Ford cologne type FK3500 with an 8 cyl. v8 side valve engine was busy but had to sell it halfway due to circumstances, I had to leave my workshop and could not find a replacement space. I now have a garage box and restore engines for the hobby.

  2. “No, that Ford Cologne, it will - as it looks now - never again turn out for an emergency. Luckily, the former Belgian ambulance is accompanied by a tough Dodge Van… ”We still had a hard time 🙂 The article is in number 12 of 2014, page 99. In any case, it is very nice that he is driving again… compliment.

  3. Hello, you once took my ford cologne many years ago, photo was taken in garyp, it said that unfortunately the fordje would never be on the road again, he drives almost 2 year, is last year been to germany. I would like to see that edition again but would not know how I like it, because I no longer know in which year the article was in your magazine. Greetings tjeerd vd velde
