It’s probably best suited to a petrol head, a Ford fanatic or someone with a unique taste in furnishings.

It’s the butt of a Mark 3 Zephyr, which has been fashioned into a couch.

It’s been sitting in the corner of the smoko room at the Ultimate Motor group Ford and Mazda dealership in Mount Maungaui for 12 years and is now up for auction to raise money for the Child Cancer Foundation.

UMG is getting a make-over so the couch has to go. Now the company’s put the car cum couch up for auction on TradeMe with all profits going to the Child Cancer Foundation “which does a phenomenal job”.

It’s truly is a stunner of a talking piece according to UMG and would be a fantastic addition for any man cave, pub, bar, waiting room or bedroom if it fits.

The TradeMe product description tell us the couch was made a long time ago and is very sturdy.

The body is metal and it’s mounted on a steel frame with caster wheels making it easy to move around and the tail lights work off a small 12-volt adapter that plugs in to your wall socket. It is painted and trimmed in true mid 60’s Ford styling.

In an attempt to make it a 100 per cent authentic Ford Zephyr, just beside the number plate there is a crack in the paint work where there is some body filler.

And to ensure as much money as possible is raised for the Child Cancer Foundation, Mainfreight has offered to ship to the winning bidders address anywhere in New Zealand for free.
