Hi all. My name is Harry. My classic car is a Ford 26M, Type P7b, built in Cologne in '71. After two years of restauration, the car is back on the road again, but only on sunny days Smile
I was surprised about all the rare Euro Ford classic cars in the US, because you have so many fantasitic american classic cars too.
In Germany, 50 year old Ford are very rare too. Most were trashed over the years. You would be see much more expensive Porsche und Mercedes classic cars, then the old Ford in our Country.

Welcome Harry. I am sure we would all like to see some photos of your car. There is a reader's ride section somewhere.

Hello Gary, I could not find any upload button, so I put a link in my posting. It navigate you directly to a pic in wikipedia. It is my car. I use another pic for the german wikipedia P7 site, because I wrote some lines for this site.

If there are any interest about P7a and P7b Ford, take a look on this site:

When you post or reply. Look at title box and look to the far right. Under that is a URL button and under that is a "Upload Picture" button. The rest is easy.
Cheers

Hi Harry, Glad to see overseas members join.

Ford did not officially import the Taunus by the 60's. There are still a few 50's 12m/15m/17m in N. America.
My uncle bought a new '70 20M coupe in Holland and while my brother and I were on vacation there he drove us around Amsterdam.
Ford Taunus are quality made cars.

Pete, great you has be driven with a 20M Smile

Like all the other old cars, the P7 has problems with rust. Most of this ole beauties were gone. Another problem are the spare parts. It is nearly impossible to get several spare parts in a top condition today, like the original chrom stuff, whindshield etc. One of the reasons is, the central Ford ware house for Europe burn to the ground in 1977:

Sorry, no upload picture button under the URL button. It must be link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server. You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC. Thats the info from "Formatting and Topic Types" of this site. Anyway, the wikipedia p7 site shows my car from the front and from inside.

German Vintage Gasstation in the Black Forest

In 2016, the restauration of a an historical gas station got finished. They put a lot of work and love into the restauration. New technic, but in the style of the 50s and 60s. In 2017, it became the gas station of the year. Drivers of classic cars and motorcycles stop way over there for a break Cool

For all visitors of the Black Forest area in Germany: The location of this new-old station is in the area of Freudenstadt (in the Black Forest).

Take a look on the clips: A nice looking Ford P7a 20M TS stop at the station and an old Ford Eifel convertible is parking in the garage.

Since it is a problem to upload pictures in the forum, here are links to my Ford 26M in the forum of Motomobil. Two pictures were taken during the restoration in the workshop. One shows the car still without windscreen:

Harry,

Welcome to this page. I have a soft spot for the P7b, great looking cars. For awhile I had a P7a RS 2300 coupe. It was a total project car and after several years of doing nothing with it, I sold it. It when to Sweden and I have not heard of it since. There are photos of it elsewhere on this site.

Michael

Hi Michael,

it is nice, that you has been driven a P7 too. In Sweden and Norway, these P7 vintage cars are very popular and there are many more of them than in Germany. In the two countries, these cars are very well maintained and elaborately restored.

Greetings
