We have published many OSIs for sale, probably because despite the “weak” engine it still remains an elegant example of GT even if not entirely Italian.
The chassis and engine are in fact of German origin: they are Ford, but we are talking about the German branch of the American parent company that everyone knows. To be precise, we are talking about the chassis, engine, suspension and brakes of the Ford Taunus 20M TS, a large coupe also known as the “P7”.
The bodywork and assembly were instead put in place by O.S.I. of Turin. In the case of this car the body is poorly fitted, at least at first glance, it has several rusty areas but the seller says it is surface rust; we don’t see the interior but the engine is said to be the original one. This car is for sale at €10,000 (today $11,000) here in Saint-Macaire, France, however the seller says that he could sell this car in bundle with a white one at €18,000 (today $20,000).
