This rare and beautiful 1955 Ford Consul Convertible is one of only a handful in existence, and has only 9,528 original miles.

The Consul was a great selling car for Ford, however, most were 4-door saloons, along with a few estate cars were made by the coachbuilder, Abbott. Beginning in 1953 a convertible by famed coachbuilder, Carbodies, became available. The Consul featured many innovations, including a new 1508cc 47-horsepower engine with overhead valves, and its 3-speed manual gearbox is shifted with the assist of a hydraulic clutch. The Consul was also the first British production car to use the groundbreaking MacPherson strut independent front suspension, and was also the first British Ford with modern unibody construction.
