Description

French title

- In rare original state, low mileage
- Four owners
- Unusual model
- No reserve

The Ford Project 1 Taunus featured a sphere at the front, located on the grille and symbolizing the globe - hence the nickname given to this model of "Weltkugel" (earth in German).
What is more amazing, with the car that we present is its status: completely original, it has never been restored and even its paint is what the car came out of the factory with. The interior is impeccable, the chassis incredibly clean, as well as the engine compartment, as if the car had never been driven in bad weather! It was sold new on July 8, 1957 by ME Kriescher, to a client residing in La Calamine, Belgium, and has had four owners in total, the second being an enthusiastic collector who gathered extensive documentation on these models. The counter shows just 30,536 km and the car comes with its original book recalling the mandatory service every six months. This unusual model, with its rare wagon body, will delight all those who enjoy a pristine car, in which it is possible to feel the years of a living history. A rare opportunity indeed.
