145 world records by a standard Ford Taunus P4 12M in 1963

Post by Cologne_P7 »

The article tells the story about a P4 who beats 145 records in 1963. The Ford droves 142 days nonstop, 24 hours a day, day and night. After the record, the car has been driven 358.273 Kilometer. Many of this records are not be beaten until now!

In the 111th night, the driver began to sleep behind the steering wheel and the car crashed. Mechanics fixed the wreck in a few hours with spare parts they did have at the track and the race continued. The wreck looks terrible, but the engines was running. So the P4 was been driven into history.

Believe it or not, the wreck is still be driving today. Meanwhile the Ford-Taunus-Club Taunusmania in France is the owner of this car:
