What a find a totally original unrestored early MK 4 Ford Zephyr V6 De Luxe with just 40,000 recorded miles. To add to the excitement the condition of the bodywork and interior is just fantastic and so refreshing to find nowadays. Ford always seem to be able to produce the right car at the right time, and yes this model was without doubt a game changer for the company. We didn't really embrace the straight lines until well into the 1970s here in the UK, but here was Ford offering this unforgettable revolution new shape to the public back in 1966- and when you parked this striking car in your drive the neighbours knew you had a new car alright.
I'm pleased to report the car is every bit as nice in real life as the photos depict, even the underside showing no repairs and very much just as it left the factory. Having seen little use in the last few years we have taken the opportunity to carry out a full service on the car, replacing all water and fuel hoses, fluids, battery, tyres etc. Panel fit is really good all round, all the doors close a reassuring click not forgetting that unmistakable Ford factory interior smell (lovely).
This being the De Lux version it came equipped with the individual front seats, front spot and reversing lights, and a cigar lighter. Servo assisted disc brakes and independent suspension all round was also another expensive development move forward for Ford at the time.
Here I must confess to having a real attachment to this model having owned a few in the late 60s early 70s. They still just waft effortlessly down the road just as we remember, and that lovely V6 is a sweet responsive motor famous in its own right.
Have to say we had almost given up on ever finding an example like this one especially in such lovely original condition. A trip down the local filling station had people coming up to me saying (my dad had one of those) and who can forget Fords mega two speed heater -it was the best. Comes with the Owners handbook, original sales sheet, all Ford tools in the boot on the button and ready to go.
