Accessories and comments
Unique original Taunus 15M “Weltkugel” produced in the Ford Factory Köln, the Ford sensation presented at the Stuttgart motor show in 1955. Perfectly preserved, completely in his first paint, undamaged interior (always protected by blankets), rubber floor carpets and headlining. Magnificent documented history, the original purchase invoice, technical inspection reports going back to the mid-60s, the complete folder with all books, even the warranty certificate provided. The sales invoice, in the name of Mr. Harry Jacobsen, whom bought the Taunus for his wife’s fiftieth anniversary, shows that the 15 M was optionally provided by heating, air freshener, and an anti-rust treatment.
Since 2009 in the possession of the last owner, who purchased the car from the first family and noticed that he has known the “Weltkugel” his whole life because the first owner was his mother’s best friend. Technically completely overhauled by the last owner, perfectly functioning, only the first original rear tires get replaced.
A leading Swedish Classic Car magazine, Classic Motor edition December 2009, have devoted a three-page article of this car and its history.
Sixty years old, factory paint, as new known history, unique.
