Description

- Restored in 2011 and ready to show

- Red with Magnolia interior

- Original sales invoice and recent check over at cost of £1,000

Ford produced the Zephyr from 1952 to 1972, a more powerful 6-cylinder engine was used over the 4-cylinder unit to be found in the Consul. The luxury Zodiac and Executive variants were the largest saloons available from Ford until the arrival of the Granada in 1972. The Zodiac was an upmarket version of the Zephyr 6, utilising limousine-type rear doors, a sharper roofline with narrower C-pillar and tail, unique four headlamp grille, exclusive bumper bars, plusher seating, and up-market upholstery, dashboard and interior fittings. A choice of individual or bench front seat was available trimmed in leather or cloth. The front doors and bonnet panels were shared with the Zephyr 6.

This fine example, finished in red with individual front seats in magnolia leather, was restored in 2011. Described as being "possibly the best available" it was given a mechanical check over in October 2016 having formed part of a private collection since purchase by the vendor. An original sales invoice in the sum of £1419 accompanies the car along with a current MoT to November 2017.
