The Ford Taunus G93A is a small family car that was produced by Ford Germany between 19 in succession to the Ford Eifel.It was the first car developed at Cologne by Ford Germany which previously had built cars originated by Ford businesses in the US or the UK.Production began on 30 April 1939, with the first car exhibited to the public in June 1939, less than six months before the outbreak of war in Europe.In 1948 the car reappeared as the Ford Taunus G73A, and remained in production until 1952.
The rear window was enlarged and flashing-light direction indicators replaced semaphore-style flippers.The advertised price at launch was 2870 Marks, but customers had the option of paying an extra 22 Marks for a shatterproof windscreen.Stylistically the new car followed the 1930s fashion for streamlining, but with a North American flavour inspired by the Lincoln-Zephyr of the time.Due to lack of available space at Ford’s Cologne plant, production of the first 1948 cars was subcontracted to Volkswagen in Wolfsburg and Karmann in Osnabrück, but in November 1948 the entire production process was taken in house by Ford.At this stage, as in 1942, only a single body style was available.
Review: I spent 18 months exploring all over the Taunus region. Bring layers of clothes as the temp can change on a dime. try like 100's of miles to ride from small town to small town or enjoy the beer gardens deep in the forest (Fuchstanz). climb for days and come barreling down the face of the mountain.This was the first (and until the 1970s the last) Ford Taunus to feature a fastback shape: in this application the rather severe slopes enforced by squeezing North-American style fast-back styling onto a relatively short wheelbase was not universally admired: the car became known as the "Buckeltaunus" (Hunchback Taunus).On 30 April 1939 Ford Cologne began to manufacture the Taunus, a mid-size car intended to slot into the range between the little Ford Eifel and the company’s big V8 models. Although the structure of the car did not follow the revolutionary monocoque structure heralded by the Opel Olympia, the Taunus did have its body welded to the chassis rather than having the two elements simply bolted together.The US-style fast back form of the Taunus called for a longer wheelbase than the car’s position in the market could justify.

The result was a car which acquired the soubriquet "Buckeltaunus" (Hunchback Taunus).
The bodyshell was supplied from the Berlin plant of pressed steel experts, Ambi Budd.
Like the Eifel, the Ford Taunus came with rigid axles, but with the innovation of hydraulic brakes.
With gasoline/petrol availability in Europe restricted to low-octane fuels, the 34 PS (25 k W; 34 hp) maximum power output was also unchanged, supporting a claimed top speed of 105 km/h (65 mph).
It was not possible to adjust valve clearances and engines typically lasted for 80,000 km (50,000 mi).
