The Consul Classic was an attempt by Ford to capitalise on the success and distinctive appearance of the Ford Anglia 105E with a larger car. However, the very American‑looking machines were overshadowed by the launch of the more nimble and lightweight Cortina in 1962 and ultimately had quite a short production life for a Ford, lasting only from 1961 to 1963. This makes them quite rare among British Blue Ovals today.  

This example was restored 'a few years ago', after having changed colour from red to the blue shade it is today in 2008. The interior was retrimmed in two‑tone blue during 2017 including the headlining. The vendor tells us that the car 'drives really very well'.  The '315 XUR' numberplate is a nice reference to the '315' designation that Ford gave the Consul Classic when a current model, and is a non‑transferable plate.

The car was registered in April 1962 and its odometer now shows 23,370 miles, but this isn't warranted. Although it no longer requires an MoT as an historic vehicle, the owner has put one on, which is valid until September 2022.

The paperwork folder file includes the V5C, two photo albums showing its restoration, and a large format notebook chronicling costs from 2012 onwards. There a sheaf of MoT certificates and invoices, with one of the more recent ones being for £398 for MoT work during September 2021.
