1996 Ford Bantam Review
A Great Little Work-horse! — Styling and economy are high on the list for this vehicle, which can be borne out by the number of years Ford kept the same body. Easy to load and offload as the load box is not too high to reach. Engine is easy to access and work on, and parts are very reasonably priced. The braking is good and adequate for the various loads. Seats are really comfortable, although the ones in this vehicle were completely destroyed by the previous owner. I have located replacements and will be fitting them soon
Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
Pros: Looks, economy, carrying capacity and reliability
Cons: None worth mentioning

Ford Bantam Rascal
Awesome pick up with a 1600cc motor out of the Ford Fiesta. Nippy and strong with a load on the back. Only rated to 618kg but have loaded a load of roughly 1000kg's and it still pulled like a donkey! ... Read More
I think it´s a good car, resistant, if you consider the price. Good motor, but some parts are very fragile (like pipes, and metal body). But as I said, comparing its price to quality and reliability I... Read More
