What we say about our Ford Zodiac...
She's got 1950's rock and roll styling to die for. Lots of chrome inside and out makes her the real Jenny from the block. Beautiful two tone exterior and two tone red and grey leather inside. Some say 1950's American styling....we tend to agree.
Our four door Zodiac is ideal for self drive wedding hire with ample room for two in the front and two in the back but she is designed to accommodate up to six in total! Rock and roll Rodders.
What the Experts Say...
The Ford Zephyr was a car manufactured by the Ford Motor Company in the United Kingdom. Between 1951 and 1972, it was sold as a more powerful six-cylinder saloon to complement the four-cylinder Ford Consul. From 1962 the Zephyr itself was offered in both four- and six-cylinder versions.
The Zephyr and its luxury variant, the Ford Zodiac which appeared in 1953, were the largest passenger cars in the British Ford range from 1951 till they were replaced in 1962 by a larger mk2 Ford Consul, Zephyr, and Zodiac.
The Mark II Zodiac was slightly altered to distinguish it from the lesser variants, having more elaborate tail-end styling and at the front a different grille. The auxiliary lamps and wing mirrors were deleted from the Zodiac range but it retained two-tone paint, whitewall tyres, chrome wheel-trim embellishers and gold plated badges.
A car tested by the British magazine The Motor in 1956 had a top speed of 87.9 mph and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 17.1 seconds. A fuel consumption of 21.5 miles per imperial gallon was recorded. The test car cost £968 including taxes.
