1959 Ford Consul MkII, Lowline 1,703cc. Registration number WWF 566 (see text). Chassis number unknown, Engine number 204E 168987.
In 1956, a new Consul appeared with the Ford code of 204E. The car was still the four-cylinder submodel of the Zephyr range, with which it shared the same basic body shell. Compared with the original, it had a longer wheelbase, larger 1703 cc, 59 bhp engine, and a complete restyle, borrowing cues from the 1956 models of America's Thunderbird and Fairlane. One thing not updated was the windscreen wipers, which were still vacuum-operated. The roof profile was lowered in 1959 on the Mark II 'lowline' version, which also had redesigned rear lights and much of the external bright work in stainless steel. Front disc brakes with vacuum servo appeared as an option in 1960 and were made standard in 1961.
WWF was restored by our deceased vendor and has no been finished off, although stored outside the body work has survived very well. Spare trim comes with the car but buyers are requested to satisfy themselves over the completeness.
It is recorded with DVLA but not taxed for road use. There is a copy of a V5 from 1984 in the deceased's name and no keys are with this vehicle.
