Hey Damiano,

Sorry to have to correct you, but I think you'll find your photo of a Ford Consul is actually a 1961-63 Ford Classic. Ford brought out two models in the early sixties the Capri and the Classic. I remember them well because my young friend's father, at the time, bought a Capri. I suppose they were testing the market for the later Ford Cortina MK 1, whch proved very popular.

Best regards, Adrian.

Salve Giulia,
penso quel messaggio fosse rivolto a me, non Adrian.
Non sono in possesso di un account facebook, ma penso ci si possa organizzare anche diversamente.

Mi può contattare direttamente a questo indirizzo email:

Grazie per i complimenti!

Hey Damiano,

I probably wouldn't have noticed either, but in the 1950's my Mum used to own a sky blue Ford Consul MkII, with front bench seat and column change, so it immediately caught my eye. I used to pretend to drive it from the passenger side. I had a pretend steering wheel and column change that I used to stick to the facia by means of a rubber sucker. I think I was about 4yrs old at the time - Memories eh!

Thanks for a great blog.
