The Zephyr, produced by Ford UK, had a long run from 1951-1972, that was divided into four distinct series.
The first edition of the Zephyr was a lengthened version of the popular Consul car. Instead of a 4-cylinder, it was outfitted with a 2,262 cc (138 cu in) six-cylinder engine producing 68 bhp (51 kW.) It was also known as the Zephyr Six. In 1951, the Zephyr sedan had a top speed of 79.8 mph (128.4 km/h) and could go from 0–60 mph (97 km/h) in 20.2 seconds.
It came as a mid-size to large family car, a 4-door sedan, a 5-door station wagon, and as a 2-door convertible. Submodels were the Zephyr Mk I Convertible (1952-1956) and Zephyr Mk I Saloon (1951-1956).
In 1956, the British magazine “Motor” reviewed the car. They found it had a top speed of 87.9 mph (141.5 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 17.1 seconds. This was an improvement over previous models.
The Mark 3 was offered as a mid-size/large family car, as a 4-door sedan and station wagon.
Submodels were the Zephyr Mk III 4 Estate Abbott (1962-1966), Zephyr Mk III 4 Saloon (1962-1966), Zephyr Mk III 6 Estate Abbott (1962-1966), and Zephyr Mk III 6 Saloon (1962-1966).
The Mark 4 was offered as a mid to large family car, as a 4-door sedan, and station wagon. Dramatic styling changes were instituted for the Mark 4. Ford UK decided to this new version the Zephyr 4, referring to the fact that it use used the four-cylinder 1,703 cc (104 cu in) engine from Consul 375.
Submodels were the Zephyr Mk IV 4 Estate (1966-1972), Zephyr Mk IV 4 Saloon (1966-1972), Zephyr Mk IV 6 Estate (1966-1972) and the Zephyr Mk IV 6 Saloon (1966-1972).
