Our First South Pole Phone Order

We are building our first Ford Custom conversion for an unusual customer…. Ian has ordered his conversion by sat phone from the Antarctic!!
Ian is station leader at the King Edward Point Research Station South Georgia South Atlantic (the base for the British Arctic Survey https://www.bas.ac.uk/), pictured above in all its glory.

Having spent the winter on the base, Ian is currently on a ship heading to the Falkland islands before getting on a military plane and heading back the the UK and to Cambee to see our progress with his conversion.

A word from Ian:

Thank you for all the time and effort you and your team are putting into this project for me. It has been a pleasure dealing with you and I do really appreciate all the effort you are putting in to understand exactly what it is I want out of my van. As the van starts to take shape I am impressed by the lengths you are happy to go to, to meet my design. I cant wait to see the
finished thing.

many thanks

Ian

Thanks Ian, we can’t wait to see the finished van too! Our first Transit Custom includes bespoke cabinets, a bike store and a Flex 118 on rails.
