1955 FORD ZE­PHYR

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

The first all-new postWorld War Two Bri­tish Ford came as a reve­la­tion. Draw­ing ex­ten­sively on the ‘shoe­box’ 1949 Ford, the Con­sul MkI, Ze­phyr and Zo­diac of­fered su­pe­rior lev­els of per­for­mance, han­dling and re­fine­ment. While the Con­sul used a four-cylin­der en­gine, the Ze­phyr and range-top­ping Ze­phyr Zo­diac (only in MkII guise did it be­come the Zo­diac) used a 2.2-litre six-pot. His­torics’ ex­am­ple was repa­tri­ated in 2014 from South Africa, where it led a pam­pered life, and is said to have never been welded, with the body and un­der­side in ex­cel­lent order and the paint and chrome­work also very good. Smart, rea­son­ably rapid and po­ten­tially great value, it’s worth a look.
