"The Mk. I Ford Consul and Zephyr models were first displayed at the Earl's Court Motor Show in 1950. They were the first to use, in mass production, the MacPherson Strut independent front suspension, which is still widely used today. Production began with the Consul on 1st January 1951. The original model ran until 1956 when the Mk. II Consul, Zephyr and Zodiac went on sale and were known as the three graces. In 1956 the Consul, Zephyr and Zodiac were all restyled to a new family look. The six-cylinder engines were enlarged to 2,553cc with power output correspondingly increased to 86bhp. The Mk. II range was a big seller and finished its run in April 1962.
Registered on 12th September 1960, this handsome Zodiac presents in the classic colour combination of Maroon and Cream. The car has been in storage since 2014 and now forms part of a deceased estate. We are informed that this car runs but will require a mechanical check to ensure roadworthiness. This MoT test exempt Ford is offered to auction with a V5C registration document and without reserve."
