Ford Freda

Ford Freda Ford logo

The Ford Freda, what can we say that has not been said before? This is the van that started the Japanese conversion phenomenon; there are so many permutations of conversions available with and without an elevating roof. Economical on fuel and smooth to drive the Freda still has lots going for it as economical to buy and run campervan; at Calder Campers we currently have five conversion layouts available:

  • The rear pod behind the rear seat
  • The side pod in between the front and middle seat
  • The six seat side conversion for the larger family
  • The full rear conversion all you need at a low cost
  • Our full side conversion with a swivel front seat and rock and roll bed

The Ford Freda is still very well specified in comparison to the more modern Japanese MPV's and comes with automatic gearbox, power steering, front and rear air-conditioning, twin airbags, electric windows, and are available with a range of petrol and diesel engines all with either two or four wheel drive. Some have the AFT electric elevating roof, side and rear curtains and aero body kits, all can be fitted with our swivel front passenger seat, the only thing that the Freda has lacked over its other camper vans competitors, well no more.
