Could well be the only one in North America. The first one that I have heard of. How did you come to own it? If you are willing to post some photos here, I'm sure people would find them of interest.

For those who don't know, the blue and white coupe on the left it the type of care we are talking about.

Funny enough the Feb issue of Practical Classics has a 2 page cutaway article on this very model.

I believe this car was on the San Diego Craigslist for a while. From what I could see in the pictures the driver's floor was gone. The listing is gone now. Here is the old link.

I POSTED AN AD FOR A 64 TAUNUS AWHILE BACK, I'M POSTING THE PICTURES NOW . THE CAR CAME INTO THE STATES THROUGH AN AIR FORCE SERVICEMAN IN THE 70s. IT SAT UNCOVERED SINCE IN ARIZONA FOR THE LAST 40 YEARS. YES THERE IS RUST, THE DRIVERS FLOOR AND RIGHT REAR QUARTER PANEL, ALSO REAR WHEEL EDGES. INTERIOR IS COMPLETE. MOTOR IS APART. TIMING COVER IS OFF WHICH I HAVE. AGAIN, THIS MAYBE THE ONLY 12M FASTBACK IN AMERICA. CARS LIKE THIS NEED TO BE SAVED PLEASE NO NEGATIVE COMMENTS ON HOW RUSTY OR HARD IT WILL BE.

Hi Mike,

Is this a 1200 or 1500 cc engine, both were available in the Taunus 12M coupe. If you don't know, I could decode the data plate for you. Most likely the reason the timing cover is off the engine is because the balance shaft gear broke. The balance shaft bearings wear out and the plastic teeth on the gear shears off.

Could you post close up pictures of the rust? Rear quarter panel, inner and outer wheel well, front floor, inner sill and underside of the Rh & LH sill. Also pictures any bubbles in the paint/metal and engine compartment.
Thank you

Mike,

Thanks for posting the photos, it really helps. This is the only P4 of any bodystyle that I am aware of in NA.

It looks like you have some other interesting cars in the background. Hard to say exactly what... Toyopet Crown? Simca? Isuzu?

Hoping for a good outcome.

Michael
