1959+ Ford Consul with an interesting two-tone scheme.

Assembled in Amsterdam - they used that partial side flash on Consuls and Zephyrs.

What side flash?

As far as I know, this is a Low Line Consul which all had those rear lights https://www.flickr.com/photos/leicester-vehicle-photography/14528957005/ from 1959 onwards.
Low line Zephyrs had a slightly different rear https://www.car.info/en-se/ident/704793/spots (my car), no matter where they were assembled. The only few things that could differ between markets (from early 50's and onwards) are indicators, added rear reflexions, heater, a bigger air intake for the engine and mud flaps. I'm not aware of anything else and would be happy to know more.

Side flash as in side decoration. That was typical for Amsterdam assembled Consuls and Zephyrs...

@DynaMike:

I haven't seen any of those before, but I suppose it all make sence if sold alongside the French Ford (that is Simca) http://www.philseed.com/simvedette.html .

But it seems not all Mk 2 from the Netherlands had that colour scheme /vehicle.php?id=1007671 . Were only the Low Line's painted that way?

I'afraid I don't know the answer to that question, Zodiac :/
But I guess it might well be like that: no painted side deco on the early ones.

Consul with side flash and Taunuses on same track

- do the Taunuses suggest a pre-1959 date??

I believe it might point either way, but I'm far from certain.

According to http://www.classiccarcatalogue.com/FORD%20D%201958.html , when comparing model years, it might be MY 1958 if the first one is a 12M Combi, the second a 17M de Luxe and the third one a Consul. But when looking at the roof line of the Consul, I belive it has a flatter roof and thus might be a 1959+ Low Line.

"... eind jaren vijftig" should mean "last years of the 50's", if I understand the Dutch language correctly. So no clue there either.

Did Dutch made MY 1959 12M Combi still have the side strip of the German made MY 1958?


Edit:
According to Olyslager Motor Manual concerning the Mk2 models, MY 1959 was introduced in February 1959. And on page 11 there is an interesting clue:

"The Consul is available in an extensive variety of single and two-tone colour schemes, which vary with the year of manufacture and the assembly plant in which the car is finished."

Could it be a late 1958 12M Combi alongside an early 1959 Consul? Perhaps the change between the Model Years took place at that particular photo shot!
