Mecum will be offering this 1959 Ford Taunus 17M deLuxe at their Louisville Auction running from September 21 to 23.

The car looks to be in decent restored condition, but the overspray in the engine bay over wires betrays the fact that it may be a quick and less-than-thorough attempt at a restoration. Nevertheless, its a running and complete P2 Taunus coming up for auction for anyone who is interested!

Some things not correct: top of the dashboard has been painted the wrong color but the ashtray is still the original color. air filter housing definitely not for this car.

Can somebody find anymore errors?

Front turn signals not there (they should be above bumper in the center of the curved pieces), bolts put in place above front bumper, arm rest pads too thick, windlace not replaced and the grab handles on the inside of the "B" pillar not even cleaned up, extra switch/knob to the left of the ignition switch. Mostly looks good, but these errors along with other ones previously mentioned makes me wonder about the quality of restoration.

I believe this is the same car that was on Craigslist near Lexington a year or two back. I saved the picture of the listing then.
