1962-1966 FORD Zodiac MkIII specifications

1962-1966 FORD Zodiac MkIII specifications Classic and Performance Car

The Zodiac MkIII differed from its Zephyr counterparts in more than just engine size and trim level. Yes, there was the much bigger 2553cc six-pot engine, and yes, the car had more comfort to it, but its body was also substantially altered with more glass and slimmer roof pillars, a steeply inclined back window and an impressive chrome-laded front end characterised by four headlamps. Extra power over the Zephyr 6 meant 107bhp and a genuine 100mph. For 1965 to 1966, there was the Zodiac Executive which was pitched as a Jaguar rival.
