1957 Ford Consul
What an absolute joy of a car, in a perfect colour and original condition! Fortunately for me this one was being held up at a level crossing so I was able to get a couple of snaps of it. In my opinion they don't come much better than this- original condition and driving on the roads in winter, albeit a nice sunny day. Note the two happy looking dogs on the back seats!
It's been in the same hands since 1981. although the driver looks fairly young so I'm guessing it perhaps belonged to other family members. XN code hasn't been used since 1974 so an old plate too.
