Junked: Ford Zodiac Mk II 206E

I had never seen a Ford Zodiac in person before I came across this hulk languishing in a Canadian junkyard three years ago. Zodiac was the luxury variant of the Zephyr, and was the largest Ford passenger car sold in the UK during its production run. This one is a Mk II model sold between 1956 and 1961. They came with a straight six and were sold in two body styles, "Highline" and "Lowline", named for the roof height. In 1959 Ford cut out a couple of inches from the roof and redid the interior with a revised rectangular instrument panel to make the Lowline. That dates this car between 1959-1962. Don't bother asking where to find it for parts, this car is long gone.
