This is cut and paste from a listing on the British Saloon Car Club of Canada's Facebook page. I don't know how to get a hold of Doug Frechette except on FB, if if anyone is in a position to save this one of on (Canadian spec) car and isn't on Facebook, I can be a bridge.

I drove this car in 2003, it was stored outside in Ontario for who knows how many years... such a shame.

Last chance for someone to save my 1968 Ford Zodiac. Car is complete with an allegedly rebuilt engine (its painted up at any rate). Car is extremely rusty underneath, I priced out replacement panels and quit counting at $20k and that's before shipping.

Car is complete with hubcaps, factory manuals, and keys. Will entertain offers on parts. Car needs to be gone by the end of June. Asking $500 complete. Goes for scrap after that date due to hassles from bylaw.

I took these pictures in June 2003 when the car was for sale for CDN $2,000. It was in pretty nice shape. I have lost contact with the owner Ian Lalande, but he had a second Mk IV Zodiac as well that was in pieces. We ran a story on Ian's Zodiacs quite a few years ago. The runner is a 1968 model and was special ordered my the motoring journalist for the Toronto Globe & Mail (as I recall). Ian's second car is a 1966 model and appears to have started life as a evaluation car for Ford of Canada but was then sold to a private party who drove it back and forth from Ontario to California several times.

LHD Mk IV are pretty darn rare. These two cars might well have been the ONLY Mk IVs built to North American specifications.

It's July 2nd, I'm afraid to find out the fate of this car -- but I will and will report back.

To be honest, it might have yielded some spares but it was beyond redemption. And Likely no one on this side of the pond needs spares save for the engine and box in a TVR or somesuch...

The seller hasn't replied. I was thinking that any LHD parts would be like hens teeth for the few surviving Mk IVs in Europe.
