Ford Zephyr near Marldon Road tollhouse. by 


THIS PAINTING IS SOLD BUT YOU TOO CAN COMMISSION MIKE TO PAINT YOUR VERY OWN ORIGINAL OF YOUR FAVOURITE VEHICLE, A SOUND INVESTMENT FROM WHOM MANY REGARD AS BRITAIN’S LEADING TRANSPORT ARTIST. JUST E-MAIL mika@transportartist.co.uk

When Ford introduced their new range of what were then quite large saloons most other cars in Britain still had running boards, exposed headlights and side-valve engines so their slab-sided American aspect made them look like they were from another planet.

The Consul was the basic four-cylinder model, and the Zodiac the six-cylinder top of the range but here we see the in between Zephyr a six-cylinder, six seater having just passed an AA patrol man on the Totnes-Paignton road. The old toll-house in the background was demolished by an errant juggernaut sometime in the 1970s but the road is basically the same today.

Although my forte is commercial vehicles I still love classic cars, I should do because I remember when most of them were the latest model, and a painting like this of your favourite classic car, English, American, even German or French in oils on a 20″×30″ board costs about £1000.
