Bodywork and conversions
By working closely with the bodybuilding industry, we’ve ensured that all standard body types, and most specialist conversions, can be fitted easily, with little or no modification. That’s why the Ford Transit has long been the professional’s choice for chassis cab conversions. Here’s a summary of the features of the flexible Transit Chassis Cab range.
Transit Chassis Cab provides the widest, most flexible choice and with it, maximum versatility. But whichever combination you go for, the robust ladder-frame chassis (with integral body mounting points and low frame rails) provides a strong, reliable base to build on.
 
•    Choice of Cabstyle – single or double cab
•    Choice of three wheelbases
•    Choice of four frame lengths
•    Maximum payload and body versatility
•    Suitable for standard and specialist bodywork conversions
Here are the key features of our solid, tough and dependable chassis.
 
•    Flat, straight top of frame
•    Three gross vehicle weights: 3,025 kg, 3,500 kg and 4,600 kg
•    Wheelbase and overhang dimensions suitable for industry-standard body sizes: 2.8, 3.2, 3.65, and 4.0 m
•    Designed to accommodate non-standard body sizes (either larger or smaller)
•    Accommodates body widths up to 2.2 m
•    Robust inverted closed ‘top hat’ section, pressed high tensile steel frame (double ‘top hat’ for 4,600 kg models)
•    Integral body mounting points and bolt-on saddle brackets for 4,600 kg models
•    Flat, vertical back of cab
•    Removable rear closing member and rear lights, for different rear overhangs
•    Easily fitted optional bolt-on rear frame overhangs, where required
•    Higher centre of gravity suspension as standard, to cope with large bodywork
•    Electrical connections for additional exterior lighting, where required
To ensure your finished vehicle is fit for purpose, Transit Chassis Cab offers a choice of dual or single rear wheels.
Dual rear wheels
•    Provide increased rear axle capacity and loading latitude
•    Best all-round combination, but ideally suited to high payload/high traction requirements
•    Standard rear anti-roll bar to improve stability, particularly when laden
•    Available only with RWD
 
Single rear wheels
•    Ideally suited to narrow bodywork and use in confined areas, like city centres
•    Available with FWD, RWD or AWD

More fuel-efficient, especially when combined with FWD
