Introduction

Jacob Boodrie
Professional Consigner

Turn every head at any car show with this golden bombshell.

A beautiful 2-door classic coupe with a custom twist. The Consul Classic has the same 'notchback' design as the Anglia. After a few years was replaced by the Cortina, meaning not many were produced.

We think it's a great looking machine - Mike Wareham from South Coast Customs has taken this Consul and made something really special.

This car features a complete rebuild with custom paint, twin exhaust, star grill, 3" roof-chop, a wind-up rear window, the list of customisation on this example is endless.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Jacob after liaising with Alex the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Exterior

Stand out from the crowd - '60s show car with a hint of sci-fi thrown in, a real showstopper.

Wheels and Tyres

We adore these chrome ‘smoothie’ wheels with whitewall rubber, they really help the car stand out.

Alex tells us the wheels are in excellent condition - please take a look at the photos to see for yourself.

Bodywork

As you would expect from a custom total re-build, all the bodywork is in excellent condition.

The shut lines across all the panels are tight and even as you'd expect, and no dents etc observed. Please watch the videos to see all the detail.

Paint

Finished in a beautiful gold with subtle fades to a light grey, a lovely choice of paint.

Across the car, the paint is even in finish and colour.

Please view the images to see the paint in closer detail.

Glass and Trim

Wind up front windows, slideout rear quarter windows and a unique wind up a rear window.

All in great condition with no issues, please view the photos and videos for a more detailed view.

Interior

White marine vinyl and gold metal flake Naugahyde interior wraps up this lovely little package of joy.

Seats and Carpets

The interior theme is '60s show car with a hint of sci-fi, a full custom build by Neil Tadman of Neils Auto Interiors.

A very smart full custom interior - white marine vinyl and gold metal flake Naugahyde.

We really like how the ski jump centre console links the under dash parcel shelf to the wind-down rear window.

Alex tells us the headlining and boot trim are also excellent condition.

Dashboard

A simple yet beautiful gloss white dashboard. From the photos, the dashboard looks in great condition.

Please take a look at the images for a detailed view.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

We think the eight-ball gear stick is really cool with the classic steering wheel to match, it takes you back to those sweet '60s summers.

Upon inspection of the photographs the steering wheel and gear stick look in excellent condition.

Please view the photographs to see the steering wheel and gear stick in more detail.

Mechanics

The 1,500cc pre-crossflow four-cylinder engine is perfect for cruising down the promenade during sunsets.

Engine and Gearbox

A 1,500cc pre-crossflow four-cylinder Ford engine with a four-branch manifold and 28/36 twin-choke Weber carb carries this fantastic body.

As expected Mike has attended to the engine bay as well, an excellent finish as seen in the images.

Suspension and Brakes

Alex assures us that the car handles as you'd expect from this Ford and stops just as it should do too.

The suspension and brakes have been giving a lot of attention during the rebuild.

The Drive

Alex assures us this car drives as good as it looks, beautifully and fault-free.

Please view the introduction video to see Alex driving the car around his local village.

Electrics and Other

As you would expect from any car from the '60s, limited electrics - we love going back to the raw driving experience free from distraction.

The car features a classic radio, that fits in with the interior perfectly.
