Abbotts of Farnham had also converted the Mk1, but the extra length of the Mk2 enabled it to create a station wagon with a certain degree of panache.

In recent years this car has formed part of a large collection and as such has received little or no use and an element of recommissioning is to be expected to return it to the road once again. Your inspection pre-sale is welcomed and encouraged to appreciate the potential of this rarely offered motor car which is strictly sold as seen.

  • In 1956, a new Consul appeared with the Ford code of 204E, however, the car was still the four-cylinder sub-model of the 6-cylinder Zephyr/Zodiac range, with which it shared the same basic body shell
  • With its vestigial fins and dashing looks, chief stylist Colin Neale's Mk2's appearance represented a form of affordable Americana and divided opinion
  • Formica kitchens, telephones that didn't need the operator to assist with a trunk call and a family Ford with wings, finished in Caribbean Turquoise and sitting on Whitewall tyres, what was the World coming to?
  • The new-look was to prove really popular and it wasn't long before a convertible and an estate were on the drawing board with E.D. Abbott once again being tasked with designing the Estate
  • They had also converted the Mk1 (we have one in the sale), but the extra length of the Mk2 enabled it to create a station wagon with a certain degree of panache
  • Finished in Caribbean Turquoise over Ermine White, the 1703cc 4-cylinder Consul Estate on offer here is totally evocative of the period and, once recommissioned, will be an interesting addition to any collection of sixties Fords
