stylish, Well-made and Well-en­gi­neered six-seater, With strong cUlt fol­loW­ing for the con­vert­iBle

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Of The Vauxhall Velox & Cresta Pa -

Ford didn’t em­brace the fin as much as many ri­vals, even in the USA, yet strangely the Bri­tish Ford Anglia of 1959 and the Clas­sic/Capri of 1961 went for that look. How­ever the Ford Con­sul/ Ze­phyr/Zo­diac MkII boasted re­strained but stylish tail fins. They might not have been big enough to have any­one’s eye out, but were prom­i­nent enough to com­pete with Rootes’ mid-range cars for hav­ing the first fins on the Bri­tish mar­ket.

Stylish and well-made, they of­fered ex­cel­lent per­for­mance in six-cylin­der Ze­phyr and Zo­diac forms. Con­vert­ibles com­mand high prices to­day.
