1954 Ford Zephyr of the kind on which Tony learnt to drive in 1962

1954-ford-zephyr

This is not the actual car on which Anthony J Sargeant learnt to drive but it is the same colour and configuration. It was quite a beast on which to learn to drive. A big six cylinder saloon with three speed gearbox operated from a steering column gear change lever. No safety belts in those days and a bench seat at the front.It was also somewhat light on the back giving it a predisposition for the back end to break loose on bends.
