  Ford Zephyr 4 MkIII  

In April 1962, Ford replaced the Consul/Zephyr/Zodiac Three Graces range with dramatically restyled models, although it shared some of its mechanical components, as well as the basic chassis design, with the Mark II models.

Rather than continue the Consul name, Ford UK decided to call the entry level model the Zephyr 4, the 4 indicating that it still used the four-cylinder 1,703 cc engine from the Consul 375. A four-speed manual gearbox, now with synchromesh on all ratios, was standard, with overdrive or automatic transmission available as options. Front disc brakes were standard. During the production run, the nose styling was changed and the grille lowered. The Zephyr lettering moved from the front edge of the bonnet to below the bonnet opening and the 4 badge below the grille was eliminated.

The Zephyr 4 remained in production until 1966 when it was replaced by the MkIV
