The Ford Consul Mk One was very advanced when introduced in 1951. It was the first British production car to use MacPherson struts on the front suspension and the first British Ford to use unibody construction. It also uses a hydraulic system to operate the clutch.
This example looks good with it's classic 1950's beige colour scheme and red interior.
It was registered new on the 11th November 1953 and was given the registration number 748AME. This valuable number is still on the car and is included in the selling price.
Although the car is now MOT exempt it has an MOT which runs until September 2019. The current recorded mileage is 57579.
The car will be licensed for twelve months from the date of sale for the new owner at no cost as the car qualifies for the Historic Taxation class.
According to the web site How Many Left, there are only 99 Mk One Consul's currently licensed for road use and there is an active owners club dedicated to keeping them on the road which can be found at - details above
