In his quest for vintage bodywork, chrome dreamer Patrick ‘Carspotter’ Cummins travelled to Walkinstown, Co Dublin and returned with these three stone cold classics.
1. Ford Zephyr: “I was delighted to randomly happen upon this Ford Zephyr 6 Mark III. The Mark III was manufactured between 1962 and 1966 and used a 2.55L inline 6 engine. My father recalls the Zephyr being used by the Gardai in the mid 1960s.”
2. Mercedes 280SE (W116): “The 2.8L variant of the early Mercedes S-Class was its entry-level engine. Nonetheless it’s such a shame to see a car of this caliber in need of a mountain of TLC. I’m no expert on old Irish registrations but could this be an original Irish car?”
3. Unidentified Fiat Coupe: “I came across this car lying up abandoned in a garden. At first glance I thought it was a Jensen Interceptor but then came to realise it was an old Fiat. My hunch tells me it’s a 124 coupe but maybe someone can clarify what model it is. Anyone?”
