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.
