HOT RODS - MAD MAN'S ZEPHYR PICK-UP
 

 

 



 

 

Mad Man buys a Ford Zephyr 4 MK III Pick-Up....by Mad Man

19th April 2010
After nearly a year in storage, the Zephyr comes out of the garage and it's off to Humungus' garage to get it ready for an MOT.


New poly bushes throughout.


Some more work underneath and Shultz underseal should keep the rust at bay.
 

June 2009
The Zephyr is welded underneath and goes into storage for the winter.

 

12th May 2009
If you plan to transport a car 60 miles across 3 counties at night and someone offers to lend you a dolly and trailer bar, make sure they are in full working order before you get 5 miles down the motorway.  It turns out the dolly had a flat tyre which couldn't be inflated (faulty valve) and the trailer bar had one light out, with the other light working intermittently.  Now towing a matt black car at night down an unlit motorway with bad to no lighting attracts more flashes than pervert in a park of school children.  A big thanks goes to the guy who forced me off the road in order to tie his own hi-vis vest to the back of the pick-up. 


(Mickey at Mayhem thinking it should be lower!)

Anyway, after one of the longest nights of my life transporting the pick-up from Bristol to Thatcham, I drop the vehicle of to Mickey at Mayhem Motors, for an initial look over.

What we know already is it doesn't run, which is maybe be an issue with the starter and stripped teeth on the flyweel.  Safety issues include the plastic fuel line is nearly dragging on the ground, and an open fuel tank (see photo).

More very soon,,,,
