1953 Ford FK 1000
It is not so completely unlike to his main rival the VW van, especially as it had in his first design beginnings also a split windshield. However this is produced earlier, what is an
advantage for the design of the FK. Leads one the comparison with the VW transporter further, we distinguish the position of the engine. Here again, the Ford is better of with the engine placed between the seats, it does
offer such a except for the rear wheel arches plane and deep floor with large hinged doors in the rear.
Another competitor would be the DKW, but here again disturbs the relatively feeble two-stroke engine. So Ford offers with the FK a for the city very agile and quick vehicle with an acceptable fuel consumption. The only problem is the for this time a bit
outdated rigid front axle, but it undergoes relatively little criticism in the reviews.
