Our Dream for 2021 Came True!
The 2021 NEC Classic Car Show was special for the FTC-GB for several reasons.
Although the Taunus marque had been in production since April 30th 1939, with the launch of the Ford Taunus G93A, all Taunus cars produced up until 1970 were designed and built by Ford of Germany. Previously, Ford of England and Ford of Germany produced very different vehicles for their respective Domestic Markets. However, with the formation of Ford of Europe, big changes were afoot.
The first vehicles launched by the new collaboration were the Ford TC1 and the Ford Cortina mk3. Both models were launched almost simultaneously to the awaiting public.
The year 2021 also marked a significant milestone for the FTC-GB club as a whole, being our 30th year! Formed in 1991 we are the only club in the UK specifically dedicated to, and catering for, the Ford Taunus range of cars.Finally, our very own Roy T. winning Judges’ Choice for his top secret restoration put the icing on the cake, marking an incredible end to a fantastic show....
