A trio of 1960’s Fords, from the golden era of rock ‘n’ roll, are entered into the Charterhouse June classic car auction being held at The Royal Bath & West Showground at Shepton Mallet.

“The owner of the three classic Ford’s sadly lost his wife earlier this year. Having spent so much time together cruising and going to classic car shows, he has decided the memories are just too strong and has decided to sell all three cars.” said Matthew Whitney. “However, he will not be leaving the classic car scene altogether as he will use the money raised to buy a 1960’s Jaguar Mk II to enjoy.”

With a real passion for early 1960’s Ford 6 cylinder cars, there are two 1960 Zodiac Mk II’s and a 1961 Ford Zephyr Mk II (which is an upmarket Zodiac). All three cars have been professionally restored within the past five years. The 1960 Zodiac finished in two tone grey paintwork, was originally purchased from Eric Perry Ltd of Torquay and with 70,000 from new, is a now multiple show winning car. With all three Fords having a 2.5 litre 6 cylinder engine fitted to manual gearbox with overdrive, they are a rare sight on the road today and will bring miles of smiles for the new owners at the Charterhouse auction.

Charterhouse is now accepting for this forthcoming specialist classic car auction and for in June and for their collectors auction, also in June.
