Our car

Our car Zephyr WineThe Ford Motor Company had the foresight and vision to release a new vehicle in the early 1950s. Its name was Zephyr, and according to Ben it’s one of the best cars ever made. It was the first of the family sedans that arrived on New Zealand shores and an icon of the New Zealand roads in the 60s and 70s. One of the original Glovers (Owen’s grandfather) owned a 1955 Zephyr Mark 1. Owen has fond memories of Sundays spent in the back seat, driving to his favourite Marlborough beach.

It’s perhaps not surprising that our company vehicle is the winged 1965 Mark 3 Zephyr. A straight six, with twin pipes and a weber carburettor, it is the sweetest sounding car on Dillon’s Point Road.
