2015 Ford Transit joins the show "American Pickers" and you could WIN one to use #WINTransit


Being the bargain hunter that I am, I am a big fan of the History Channel show "American Pickers." So, as a proud Detroiter and Ford employee, I was very happy to find out that the new 2015 Ford Transit is joining "American Pickers" as stars Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz travel around the United States, searching remote and rustic locations for classic gems that can be restored and resold.

Wolfe and Fritz will drive a 2015 Transit, a full-size van designed for commercial use, in their mission to find these relics.

'The biggest thing is, when the van is full, then we've got to come home. I'm interested in real estate on wheels,' Wolfe says during the episode airing April 30. 'There were four or five different vehicles I was looking at, and I just keep coming back to the Ford as the better choice.'

"American Pickers" will use the largest Transit model – with a long wheelbase, extended body and high roof – featuring the Ford 3.2-liter Power Stroke five-cylinder diesel engine.  The show is just one example of how Ford Transit serves the needs of small businesses and commercial fleets.

You could WIN the use of a 2015 Transit for Two Weeks...

To celebrate the debut of Transit on 'American Pickers,' Ford is hosting a scavenger hunt that challenges contestants to find one of 10 scale-model Transit vehicles on display in antique shops across the United States.

The 10 winners get the use of a 2015 Transit for two weeks.

The first step is to find one of 10 scale-model Ford Transit vans that will be located in antique shops in 10 metropolitan areas from April 29, 2014, through July 1, 2014.

If you find one of the models, tweet @Ford with a photo of the code on the model and the hashtag #winTransit to be entered into a drawing for a chance to win the use of a Transit van for two weeks.

Since scavenger hunts are all about tracking clues, here’s a hint to get you started! The 10 U.S. cities with the Ford Transit scale models are:

Kansas City, Missouri
New York
Orlando, Florida
San Francisco
