As the vehicle of choice for many aspiring rock stars, the Ford Transit was often the workhorse for bands. This week’s image shows ‘60s chart-toppers, Brian Poole and the Tremeloes, alongside their 1966 Ford Transit Custom. Formed in 1958, the Dagenham-based group, which enjoyed success with hits such as “Twist and Shout” and “Do You Love Me”, knew the importance of reliable transport and the Ford Transit easily carried the group and their equipment between gigs.
