Mercedes and Ford vans on the road
The convoy will consist of the Ford Transit, the Courier, the Connect and the Custom and Ford says the tour will highlight 50 years of loyal service to UK businesses.
The first Ford Transit was produced in Langley in 1965 and since then the firm has sold nearly eight million Transits.
They say that if the vans were lined-up nose-to-tail they would encircle the globe and they have sold a new Transit every 180 seconds.
The Ford Transit continues to be a success with sales at an all-time high.
