A friend, the owner of a Corsair, was given the publication “Around the World in 40 Days” by the local Ford distributors. After reading it, I compiled the following chart, which may, due to some guess-work, include errors; however, any made are surely not as great as the gross error(?) made by the Ford of Britain Public Affairs Design Unit in this piece of advertising literature. I do not wish to decry the actual achievement made by the drivers and the car.
Yeovil. L. M. Cohen.
[This nicely produced book is obtainable from Ford dealers. We imagine that others who have read it, Eric Johnson and Ken Chambers who drove the Ford Consul Corsair and the Ford of Britain Public Affairs Design Unit will have something to say about the mileage challenged by Mr. Cohen. – ED.]
