ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Towne Livery is offering a custom “Executive Shuttle” package on Ford Transit van models that comes with high-end leather and premium flooring options.

The exclusive offer, sold through the national chauffeured vehicle dealership, allows operator-buyers to upgrade the interiors for more of a luxury ambiance, said David Bastian, commercial sales manager of Towne Livery. The Executive Shuttle package comes with Katzkin Leather and Altro Wood Safety Flooring.

Towne Livery teamed up with Fenton Mobility and team of local vehicle accessory vendors. All companies participating in the package are based in the Buffalo, N.Y.

“When one company is working on the floor, the other company is working on the seats,” Bastian said. “I can complete a vehicle in a week to a week and a half.”

Kevin Farrell of Royal Limousine in Milwaukee, Wisc. bought Towne’s 1st customized Ford Transit from Towne after meeting with Bastian at the 2015 LCT-NLA Show East in Atlantic City. Farrell took delivery on Dec. 10, 2015.

“Kevin was involved throughout the whole process of customizing his Transit. Kevin chose to go with a Two Tone Dark Charcoal leather seating with Stone inserts & the Manor Oak floor,” Bastian said. Ford has not announced an official timetable as to the availability of OEM-installed leather seating on Ford Transits.

Two of the primary color combinations that Towne has in inventory are dark charcoal leather seats with a (brownish) Harvest Maple floor, and dark charcoal/stone two-tone leather seats and interior with a Manor Oak (dark gray) floor. The floors all feature PVC non-slip material. Depending on the options available for leather seating, the upfitted Transits start from $50,200.

“You can upgrade a Ford Transit and keep it in an affordable price range,” Bastian said. Bastian will be manning the Towne Livery exhibit booth No. 610 Feb. 29 — March 2 during the International LCT Show at the Mandalay Bay Casino & Resort in Las Vegas.
