Patrick Wilson is a long time EFONA (NAEFR) member who recently completed a ten year restoration on a 1960 Mk II Zodiac. Patrick is also working on a global Mk II CZZ Registry. Patrick can also help with another service (free) - UK registration tracing from 1904 to 1976.

James Dyson has a lot of Patrick’s CZZ stuff (paint code charts, road tests, photos of prototypes) on his website which can be viewed at: http://www.fordconsul.co.uk/

CZZ Registry Update

Patrick Wilson contacted me recently to report that he has been hard at work on updating the North American CZZ Registry as well as establishing a World-Wide Registry.

Patrick writes --

"I hope, with the co-operation of all the CZZ clubs, to start a master list of whats left worldwide. Am guessing that there are 300 to 400 Mk II CZZ's in the UK, and a similar number downunder. North America is a bit sparse at about 50 or 60 Mk I CZZ's. That leaves about 1,000 cars left
from a production run of 660,000 - Amazing!"

I am hoping that Patrick will update us here in the near future.

This Australian-based Consul, Zephyr & Zodiac website should be of interest to the hardcore CZZers among us.

What the f***. That's the most depressing video. These idiots actually took apart a perfectly good Zephyr mk2 convertible to save a cartoon car.

I meet Norm Scott a few years ago where showed his pride and joy at the Hillsboro All Ford gathering. It was a rare sight to see a LHD MK2 conv. even more rare in that condition. Oh well, that's life. Pete

Here's ep#5 on the end result of Norm's Zephyr:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffb2ExZNyb0

You would need to completely watch ep#4 and ep#5 to get the full picture of what went on during the process of converting norm's Zephyr into a cartoon car. Pete

The 1968 Mk IV Zodiac once owned by Ian Lalande of Hastings, Ontario, is now parked on "death row" and will be crushed in July 2017 if a new owner doesn't come along and save it. Needless to say, it has deteriorated a lot since this article about this uniquely speced care was published in the E-Ford Lines in 2001.If you click on the image, you can veiw it in a larger size on Flickr.
