When you "unchopped" it did you use the roof from a maroon Zodiac? I ask as my brother used to own one and when your Mk4 came out and was blue the build photos on a board at Bromley Pageant looked like parts might be from his old car (I recall it was something to do with it having been gold, silver and maroon at various times but could be wrong). If it was his car it was a very tired Zodiac automatic with side damage on the passenger side.
We always wondered what happended to that car.

He's still got a Mk4 by the way.

I'm pretty sure this Daimler powered Consul was from Sittingbourne and I think it was later sprayed yella

Hi, I believe I may have bought this car in 2014 from Ebay. It was a maroon automatic Ford Zodiac MK4 with beige brown interior and damage on the rear of the driver and passenger side. Registration number HPL 213K
