Tick , Just for information. What you have there is a model of a Ford Consul Cortina Super Estate. U.K. Ford used the word Consul as a prefix for many if not all of the models in the 60's. Consequently you will find, Consul Classic, Consul Capri, Consul Cortina, Consul Corsair. The Cortina you have is a '63 or '64 as they revised the grille in '65.
Have fun

Indeed lovely! There were two colour variations, a darker and lighter blue. The car was sold in this golf set, and also seperately as nr 491.

Middle of a windows 10 crash. Still recovering. Lost files and would not boot no matter what I did or where I got fixes from . Part of the problem was the latest windows 10 update and also a program called Reimage by cleverbridge. Watch out. took me 2 days to get it up and running again after their program crashed on my. I did get a full refund though and lots help from Jose in the Philippines.

Been looking over this thread, and it seems a lot of information was already given in the past (thanks Tick). So indeed there were a read and a blue version of the Consul Estate, and the blue had several variations of blue. I can further add that the wooden sides of the Consul were clevery done. One might think the sides were sprayed, but the wooden panels are seperate from the blue. I will see if I can find some pictures, as I restored several.

Here some. As you can see the side panels are one piece with the interior.








Some restored models.
