Ford Tanus 17M Phase 2

Whilst Ford was busy producing the Mk II Consul in the UK Ford Germany launched the similar Taunus 17M, Phase 2 in 1957. The new Taunus also featured an over-square four cylinder engine of 1698cc and also boasted a four speed gearbox, unfortunately the Taunus cars imported into the UK had a three speed gearbox, maybe Ford didn't want to upstage the UK built Consul which still used a three speed 'box!.

Production of the 17M Phase 2 continued in Germany until 1960.
