eBay tat volume 3.

Looky look, late registration madness. A Mk4 Zephyr 2.5 on a 'L'.

Production of the Mk4s ended in late 1971 and the Mk1 Consul / Granada was introduced March 72. 

I vaguely remember an unregistered Mk4 Zephyr being mentioned in the news / features page in a 1975/6 issue of Motor or Autocar. At the time it would have been allocated a new 'P-reg' when registered. It was being offered at less than the price of a Mk2 Escort Popular 1.1. Maybe they still have it for sale, still unregistered.

Says it's '72, so probably supplied new to somewhere like Jersey then brought back to UK and in those days it got the latest reg, not age related when re-registered.

There used to be a secondhand car dealers in Scunnie who imported ex Jersey / Guernsey etc vehicles and you got some really odd registration years on obviously older cars.

Be interesting to see what this goes for, they had it up as £8500 classified ad before. I am biased but mine is better, I have discs, bigger engine etc and of course wagon trumps saloon in my world.

Until someone wakes up to this and Gov't stops it. I have noticed thought that insurance companies have got more picky about what they consider a classic car to be even over 20 years old. 

But until then that's great. That CX looks very nice.
