1962 Ford Consul Mk II 204E Lowline, 1703cc. Registration number UFF 471 (non transferrable). Chassis number unknown, Engine number 204E 293947.
In 1956, a new Consul appeared with the Ford code of 204E. The car was still the four-cylinder submodel of the Zephyr range, with which it shared the same basic body shell. Compared with the original, it had a longer wheelbase, larger 1703 cc, 59 bhp engine, and a complete restyle, borrowing cues from the 1956 models of America's Thunderbird and Fairlane. One thing not updated was the windscreen wipers, which were still vacuum-operated. The roof profile was lowered in 1959 on the Mark II 'lowline' version, which also had redesigned rear lights and much of the external bright work in stainless steel. Front disc brakes with vacuum servo appeared as an option in 1960 and were made standard in 1961.
UFF has MOT history in 2001 at 77,648 miles, today the odometer reads 77832 miles. In 2021 it was owned by Harry Gelsthorpe who replaced the brake cylinders all round and got it running at 77,804 miles, he also had the body restored and painted. It then moved to a dealer who sold it to our vendor in June 2021. He intended to finish off the project but has not found the time.
There is one key which operates all three locks.
Sold with the V5C, 2001 MOT and various receipts, it has recently been running but the starter motor has now failed.
