Ford Zephyr

Restored Exhibition | Limited edition of 20 prints

A set of classic car restoration images which featured in Classic Cars and Classic Ford magazines. All cars were shot as found, where they had been lovingly restored, stored for security or awaited restoration, some untouched for decades.

This bedraggled 1960 Ford Zephyr was first owned by the boss of a building firm in London, who used to pick up his apprentice in it on the way to work. The apprentice loved it – this was the 1960s and it was the original British rock ‘n’ roll car. Then, after a few years, the boss turned up one day in a brand new Rover 2000. The apprentice hated it. He complained about the Rover so much that the boss said: “You really liked that Zephyr, eh? If you like it that much then give me £1 and it’s yours.” The apprentice pulled out his wallet, handed over the money and owned the car for 40 years. Time took its toll though and, with the owner unable to undertake an extensive restoration, it was sold to Spurr Classic Cars where it was stored for a decade before a complete overhaul.

Prints are signed, titled and numbered in the white border, and professionally printed on 260gsm photo paper using archival-quality ink. Measurement is the longest side of the image. Prints are sent in a sturdy tube, with postage free worldwide.
