    Well its been a while been dabbling in trucks that are not Hamb friendly...
    Got this lil turd i picked up from a friend.
    Gonna try to build the rest by myself(oh boy)!
    not traditional drive train( no money) plus i already have almost all of this crap layin around.
    Any way here is what i am planning:
    1972 Ford Courier pickup banger, and trans.
    Rear end and drive shaft from a 1969 Ford Taunus
    Try and weld up some sort of body... Or at the very least fix this turd.
    Late 20's early 30's Chrysler grille shell not sure year
    Mid 30's Chevrolet dash
    Low back seats,Not the one in the pic!
    1936 Ford pedals
    BMW steering box cowl steering, or F-1 steering traditionally mounted
    1935 Ford wires and dumb brakes
    Buggy springs front and rear
    Very old head lights 20's Ford maybe...
    Anyway all advise welcomed
    Pics of what i could do welcomed
    Any ideas welcomed(Clark)!

    I'm just wondering how you happened to find yourself sitting on a driveshaft and rearend here in the states of a German Ford I've never heard of before let alone seen.

    I was about to poke some fun at your misspelling and say Ford didn't make a Taurus in 1969 until my buddy McGoogle taught me something new.

    The 69 Taunus is my buddys car, he yanked the motor trans and rear...
    He ended up with a crazy badass straight axle Taunus!
    Now boasting a crazy small block Chevy 350, 5 speed...
    I will look for some pics of it...

    Another HAMBER has this as his signature- I liked it so much I posted it in the garage for inspiration.

    Getting a windshield for the P7b Ford (Taunus) is no problem over here in Germany. The shipping to the US might be quite costly though (and I always thought we only had this problem the other way round...).
    Your buddy migth try classic-autoglas.com or motomobil.com. The first has windshields for a lot of old cars (also Ford Taunus), the 2nd specializes in all parts for old German Fords...
