Brick-shaped classic: 1955 Ford Zephyr Six Convertible

ScreenShot001

This particular (and, to us, very fascinating) cabriolet Called Zephyr Six (aka Mark I) was built by Ford UK from 1950 to 1956 and it was considered a full-size car.

Although it could seem a small car at a glance, it was equipped with a ohv, inline-six engine with a 2,200 cc displacement, producing 68 hp and with a top speed of 130 km/h. You could choose among several body styles: the cabriolet was built by Carbodies coachworks and was featured by a bricky shape with a tall side profile. Must say that this car has stance, really. It looks like a factory custom car.

This car is also said to have a power top, along with perfectly refined red leather interiors and a lot of care of detail. Indeed the seller says that the restoration alone costed in excess of £35,000 and, looking at those photos, such statement seems correct. This car also comes with the original Buff Log Book showing 2 owners from new plus Petrol coupons, the original Ford Motor Company brochure and owner’s manual. Find it for sale at £29,000 (today $49,000 or near offer) here in Sheffield, UK.
