    Just before I was drafted in 1968, I had sold my 1954 Porsche and needed a rat. A friend had a 1959 Taunus 17M parked under a tree. We rebuilt the fuel pump and off I went. It looked kinda like a 3/4 size 56 Ford. It was also red and white. The front seat was shot, so it got a Fiat sedan seat.

    The 1.7L four ran well at least compared tot he MG B's and A's I worked on. It had 3 on the tree and I think first was synchronized. I paid $50 bucks and drove it for 5 or 6 weeks. I sold it for $50 and my friend's father drove it to work for more than a year while my friend rebuilt his VW. I don't recall ever seeing another in the flesh.
