"I found dealing with Jesmond easy and straightforward . The vehicle was true to description and presented in immaculate condition, as all his cars appear to be. Jesmond was extremely helpful and made sure that the car was licensed and warranted and serviced ready for use without any worries on my part. I can thoroughly recommend Jesmond to anyone looking for a good classic car."J K Donald, Pleasant Point, Canterbury
The MkI Zephyr brought unitary bodies to Ford.
With only around 70bhp to call on, the Zephyr is no ball of fire on the open road, but you won’t struggle to keep up with modern traffic.
In any case, this car is all about style, something it has in abundance. The simple but charming cabin is a fine place to be with plenty of room, a good driving position and nicely weighted controls.
A well-maintained example should start quickly and settle to a smooth tick-over, and while the 2.3-litre engine gets vocal when pressed, long-distance refinement is more than acceptable. An ability to cover plenty of miles in comfort is one of the Zephyr’s biggest plus points, while a smooth ride and secure handling inspire confidence if you do want to make full use of the power on offer. Perhaps it was these attributes that contributed to the Zephyr’s success as a rally car, with speed camera inventor, Maurice Gatsonides, winning the 1953 Monte Carlo Rally in one! So if you’re looking for a roomy and relaxing British classic, this stylish Ford is likely to tick all the boxes.
