Top 10: Classic AA Vehicles

In 1905 the AA was established to 'combat police persecution of early motorists'. It began with a group of cycle 'scouts' who patrolled some of the most frequently travelled roads of the day. Early AA cycle scouts used their own bicycles, for which they were paid an allowance.

In 1912 the AA took to motor transport with motorcycles, initially for Inspectors. Motorbikes with sidecars became standard issue for AA patrols and it wasn't intil 1949 that the association moved to four-wheels with the Land Rover becoming one of its first vehicles.

Motorcycle combinations were phased out in 1968 and the AA moved to vans with the Minivan its most recognisable vehicle. Since then it has used a host of makes and models as the basis for patrol and recovery vehicles. So here are some classic AA motors.

1979 Ford Escort van

Alongside the Transit, the Escort van was the mainstay of the AA fleet during the 1970s. Powered by a 1.3-litre petrol engine it was a basic vehicle but proved reliable and durable. This particular model was registered in 1979 just before Ford switched to the front-wheel drive Escort Mk3.

However it never saw active service and was instead used as promotional vehicle in the Southeast, albeit complete with all the tools used at the time. That explains why it has just 7500 miles on the clock from new. Surely the lowest mileage Mk2 Escort van still around.

It's great that such classic cars are kept in colleges. Mechanical students can study the history of automotive technology and gain skills in car repair. Some presentation writers for have created presentations about similar student projects. Projects like this give students real-world experience they can use when looking for their first job, and college administrators and the community benefit from well-preserved and fully restored classic cars.
