Ford - Ford Zephyr

The Ford Zephyr first appeared in 1950 as the top of the range Ford line. The first model of Zephyr was made between 1950 and 1956 using the 2262cc six cylinder engine, installed in a lengthened version of the Consul frame. The Zephyr Mk2 which replaced it (made from 1956 to 1962) was restyled and fitted with a larger version of this engine, with 2553cc capacity. The Zephyr Mk 3 was a very different looking car altogether (built from 1962 to 1966), and there were two versions. One was with the same 6 cylinder engine (Zephyr 6 Mk3) and the other a 1703cc four cylinder (Zephyr 4 Mk3) from the Consul which had just been discontinued. Afterwards came the Zephyr Mk4, again a complete new redesign, on a much longer wheelbase, and available from 1966. These later cars had the totally new engines, the smaller Zephyr 4 Mk4 having the V4 1996 engine and the Zephyr 6 Mk4 now having the 2495cc V6 engine.

Tyre sizes for Ford Zephyr:

- The earlier Ford Zephyr Mk1, Mk2 and Mk3 built between 1950 and 1966 were fitted with 6.40x13 tyres, which is equivalent to the radial high speed rated steel belt costruction period correct looking Blockley 165HR13 tyre size we make. Anyone wanting a non standard wider (but same diameter) tyre should look at teh 185/70VR13 tyre we produce. See details of these tyres at the links below:

- The Ford Zephyr Mk 4 models, with the V6 engine, built between 1966 and 1972 had larger diameter 14" wheels fitted, which were fitted with radial 185SR14 tyres direct from the factory, and Blockley produces this 185HR14 tyre size with both standard and whitewall versions. A non standard wider (but same diameter) 205/70R14 tyre could also be fitted for those wanting someting alot wider.
