I had a small sheetmetal work project at school. Assignment was to make something from sheet metal. My group decided to make aluminium side panniers. Made from 2mm aluminium sheet, cutted with plasmacutter, bended with cnc bend press and welded with tig.

Since I finished my motorcycle project I wanted to start a new project.
Last summer I bought 1973 Ford Taunus. That is the new project. Orginal condition is kind of well.. Alot of rust, engine is lazy and congested 1,6l ohc.

I think your Taunus could easily be made to look like this

I think the Taunus is very similar to the Cortina sold in the UK, both the Essex and the Cologne V6 engines fit, and I've seen one with a small V8 in.
The styling is similar to the Aussie Falcon.

Oh dear.  I remember having one of those in Australia.  Blue metallic with a 2.0 SOHC motor.  I couldn't work out why the Taunus looked like a Mk111 but without the coke bottle rear end, so I googled it and seems that Ford Germany re-skinned the rear end to make it cleaner/sharper. 

So does that mean it would take any of the 2.o turbo versions or perhaps a simple DOHC 2 litre motor.  I am sure that the Mk3 came with a straight 6 in OZ so maybe a 1000 Hp turbo six would also slide in there.   OK so that is insane but there's a lot of tuning stuff around still for the 2.0l 4 banger to make it more exciting - after the rust is fixed...

It's the so called Pinto motor yes? and came in 1600 and 2.0 versions.  That's the one that Tune posted a picture of.
