This has been a great find! The car is just very honest and genuine, clearly never been a bad car. It has had some paintwork in recent years, but is mainly original. The recorded mileage of 65000 would fit with the condition of the interior. The original red leatherette seats are excellent, as are the door cards. The wool headlining is still very good, dis-coloured in places but more than acceptable. The car benefits from many original period extra’s such as a Weathershields exterior steel sunvisor, wing mirrors, driving lamp and a Ford/Ekco valve radio which has been restored and overhauled by the vintage wireless company at a cost of over £360. The car is great on the road with a strong engine. Mechanically the Consul has benefited from a recent fuel pump overhaul, carburettor overhaul, new clutch, new gearbox seals and new brake linings. All the chrome is very bright and the underneath is excellent, having never required welding work.
A time warp and still with it’s original registration number. Arrives at the weekend.
