FORD CONSUL EOTA

4-door saloon, estate car.

Into the modern age with unitary construction, upstairs valves, MacPherson-strut ifs, and hydraulic brakes. Three-on-the-column bearable, but styling totally uninspired, and they've almost all rusted out by now. Good ground clearance and not fast enough to expose endemic handling weaknesses. Estates by Abbott of Farnham.
