When I bought it was no rear door handles, so I put a improvise one. Currently looking for original handle of the back door, so if someone has it let me know.
As for the production year, I looked at the number of chassis and it's say that van is made (probably) in Southampton or in Genk, Belgium 1966. in month of June. Engine type 1500 1.7 L. I need to look at exactly where I found this information.
Front grille is from 1971 I think, after a facelift. Correct me if I'm wrong.
We have made some modifications, for example the back and rear extra steps for easier entry, in front we put extra lights... Now we need to edit the interior, and if someone has the electric scheme I would be grateful to send me until it arrives workshop manual.

Other side(it's only a small A5 bit of paper,but has modified wiring of Bachert fire van conversions),I have got German ford workshop diagram also,but that has two wing diagrams,know this ones correct for early vans,mines early spec this came with it.
Thank you very much for quick answer. My van is also from fire van, but man from I buy van are added some more wirings the sirens, additional lights and so one. Probably isn't all originally, and so the van caught fire a few days ago and I need change full electricity in van.

Having blown up the pic of the back door, I can see there's been some damage and the handle isn't transit. The early back door handle goes across the other door when they are shut. It could be somebody 'updated' the front end. The big indication is the pedals. The early ones come up through the floor, later ones are pendant.
FredTransit: Captbingo like the pics, you need to put them in a thread as posts here drop off and don't gert seen eventually
