C 1950 for 1962 he was positioned as more powerful version of four-cylinder Ford Consul.
In 1955, the version appeared with the improved finishing, named Ford Zodiac.
Zephyr and Zodiac were the largest passenger cars from produced by Â«FordÂ» in Great Britain up to 1971, and last Cleanly-English Â«FordÂ»; they were changed on a conveyer yet more large Ford Consul / Ford Granada new generation of joint development with the West-German branch.
With updating in 1956 cars of Consul/Zephyr/Zodiac increased in sizes, giving yet more internal space to the passengers. The design of new models in large part looked like the design of the American cars.
On Zephyr the improved was set as compared to a predecessor 6 cylinder row motor by volume of 2553 ÑÑ. High speed arrived at 88 miles at o'clock.
First on the car Ford produced in Great Britain a hydro began(by order) to be set.

Basket of EOTA
A first generation of model of Zephyr was the extended version of Ford Consul, provided with a six-cylinder engine by volume of in a 2262 cc (68 hp). A front pendant was executed on the chart of McPherson (Â«swinging candleÂ») â€“ one of the first in the world cases of the use of this chart on a serial car; the back was a hard beam of bridge with sheet semi elliptic springs as a resilient element. The car was dispersed to 130 km/h.
Among accessible baskets there were four-door sedan, two-door cabriolet from the basket atelier of Carbodies and all-round craftsman, produced by a basket firm Abbotts of Farnham (it was for sale under the brand of Farnham).
On the level of design the car corresponded to soviet Â«MuscovitesÂ» 402/407/403. Style was self-possessed in the single key with the models of firm Ford the American market - Custom and Crestliner, but time-lagged on one generation.
A design again ascended to the models of Ford of the American market, thus with a less delay (and from home standards on a level approximately GAS corresponded to Â«VolgaÂ» â€”21, indeed, Â«VolgaÂ» was perceptibly larger). By analogy with American Â«FordÂ», Zephyr was offered in two variants of basket â€“ Â«HighlineÂ» and Â«LowlineÂ» differing in high roofs (at the last she was on a 44 mm below) and we will say the row of finishing (details, at Highline combination of devices was half-round form, and at Lowline - more rectangular.
Basket ateliers in England produced cabriolets and all-round craftsmenâ€™s on the base of this generation, in Australia all-round craftsmenâ€™s and pickups was produced serially by the branch of Ford. Cabriolets differed in the unsuccessful rickety construction of basket, and to our days 20-25 copies reached only from them.
