Yes, I tend to agree with you John...

I have to say from the pictures I have seen it looks like a fine machine but how it came into KTM hands is a bit less clear, nonetheless it seems like a very unusual vehicle. The Ford R1014 and R1114 were fitted with a Ford D365 6-cylinder engine with turbocharger and Ford gearbox which was also fitted to the 'D' series Ford lorries and some of the early Ford Cargo lorries in the early to mid-1980's. It seems like a very clean and nice machine and I congratulate you for obtaining it but as like John, I dont take much interest in non-CIE vehicles myself, and an even lesser interest in KTM vehicles but this machine really is something special.


Thanks mark.

Although it will probobly rot in a KTM "depot" if you know what I mean.

Sureline Ford

Yes,Mark is right. It is a very unusual machine. Actually it is the first bus to come out of our body building shop hence the unusual design. Bet you did nto know we had one!
