1964 FORD ZODIAC MK3 Automatic - £7,500 ono
Presented for sale is my lovely old Ford Zodiac Mk3. I bought this car at the beginning of 2013 as an unfinished project. The underside was and still is in amazing condition for an old ford with no evidence of welding it all looks original. On top the previous owner had started scraping off the paint. The car was originally gold and then repainted badly with a more gaudy gold.
My plan was always to use the Zodiac as a wedding car and I already had a Mercedes 250se in white so I had the Zodiac painted the same colour.
I bare metalled the car, made a couple of repairs to the front wing and one rear door frame where rusty metal was removed and new metal welded in. All glass was removed and the car primed and painted.I then put the car back together with new carpets, seals, trim clips and much polishing for the chrome.
I have made a few changes in the engine bay with an electric fuel pump (the mechanical pump is still in place and was recently refurbished) and electronic ignition.I also had a new ally radiator made up to improve cooling.
Over the years and I kept the car regularly serviced and running well as part of my wedding car business. However, things have changed and I no longer do chauffeur driven weddings so I have to let the Zodiac go.
It is not perfect. The paint job still looks very good but there are a couple of blemished/bubbles if you look hard enough. It is still gold under the bonnet and in the boot.
The engine starts on the key and runs sweet and does not burn oil.
The auto gearbox works fine once warm so culd do with a service.
I have plenty of pictures of the car being restored and being used as a wedding car and a file of receipts for parts and work.
The Zodiac is MOTs until June 2018.
