This is a great little Ford Zodiac four door sedan was built by Ford of England and sold new in Canada. The car was Ford of England’s equivalent of the U.S. Ford Galaxy.
Zodiacs sported 2-tone paint, and the car appears to be in the correct original colors although the car has been repainted at one time. The interior is in good condition; the seats and door panels are red and white vinyl with black accent trim, and red carpet on the floor are in very good condition. The dash pad is also in great condition.
The body appears to be very solid and is very presentable. There appears to have been a repair at about the same level on both right side doors but does not look like a rust repair. The engine runs and sounds good but the head gasket was replaced as it was pushing some oil into the radiator. This this appears to have resolved the issue. The original radiator is in the trunk, as a 1966 Ford Mustang radiator was adapted to replace the old one which was rusted and blocked. The coolant now flows through the radiator as it should.
The fuel tank had been drained previously while the car was stored. We blew out the fuel lines and added a couple of gallons of gas. The engine runs off the fuel in the tank and the pump works correctly. The brake system needs to be rebuilt with new wheel cylinders, master cylinder and brake shoes. The park brake does work. The bumpers are in good condition with minor pitting and scratches.
The other trim and the hubcaps have some pitting and dings. All exterior lights are working. The tires will need to be replaced, they are weather cracked and mismatched. There is no spare tire or wheel. The transmission operates properly in forward and reverse gears. Overall, this is a nice solid car that would make a fun and unusual driver. The car comes with its’ jack, ORIGINAL and rare Zodiac instruction (owner’s) manual, original Ford of Canada owner’s service policy document.
