Mustard special: 1967 OSI 20M TS Coupé

ScreenShot001

This is not the first OSI 20M TS living in the U.S.A., but for sure is the best seen so far. Very few of these are on the american soil as it was never officially imported to the U.S.

Indeed the seller says that the only american owner found it during a trip to Italy in 1973: it was a new, unsold car laying into a dealer shop, so he decided to buy it and to bring it with him at home. This is the first one we see painted in what seems the same shade used on period Alfa GT, the ochre yellow. Maybe this color doesn’t fit this car as good as it does on the Alfa, but this is it, unless you want to wait for the next one on the market.

The seller says that this car has been always garaged and that it has only 26,753 original miles: it’s not hard to believe him. It had a full repaint few years ago plus several minor services. Overall, this OSI looks very nice and, if the reserve price is not set too much high, don’t let it go. Find it for sale here in Charleston, SC., with bidding at $5,000 and reserve not met.

    Very nice….looks all original. I have two of these here in the US. One is customized with a Ford 302 V8 and the other still needs restored.

    A 302? I wouldn’t be surprised if with all that torque the Taunus chassis would bend like a banana…;-)

    Yes it would but not with the custom full frame I had made for the car…you can see photos at http://www.osi20mts.com/contents/en-uk/d14.html.
