The Ford Zephyr is a car manufactured by Ford of Great Britain from 1950 to 1972. Initially, the four-cylinder version was named Ford Consul, but since 1962 the four- and six-cylinder versions were named Zephyr, the Consul's name was. discontinued in this line of cars.
The Zephyr and its luxury variants, the Ford Zodiac and the Ford Executive, were the largest passenger cars in the British Ford range from 1950 until their replacement by the Consul and Granada models in 1972.

In April 1962, Ford replaced the Consul / Zephyr / Zodiac line with a radically revamped model, although it shared some of its mechanical components, as well as the basic chassis design, with the Mark II models. Instead of continuing with the Consul name, Ford UK decided to call its replacement Zephyr 4, the 4 indicating that it still used the Consul 375's 1,703 cc (104 cu in) four-cylinder engine. Four-speed, now synchronized in all proportions, was standard, with overdrive or automatic transmission available as an option. Front disc brakes were standard.
