Bongo Van! 1990 Ford Spectron XLT

The Ford Spectron XLT wasn't a van...and it wasn't sold in the USA...in fact, it wasn't even really a Ford, it was a Mazda Bongo that had been given a Ford badge and sold for Japanese family & light commercial needs. Find this 1990 Ford Spectron XLT offered for $11900 in Gilbert, AZ via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

  1. I first thought that was duct tape across the seat, but other pictures show it's apparently the factory upholstery.

  2. "Spectron XLT". Great name! Sounds like it could have been a successor to this:

    1. That's Fireball XL5, for those who did not grow up with Gerry Anderson's various space series.
