Classics - Ford Taunus vs. Opel Manta
AutoWeek Classics Dubbeltest met de Ford Taunus Coupe en de Opel Manta. Twee 'gewone' auto's met een bijzondere jas!
1969 Ford Taunus 20m RS P7b
My 1969 Taunus RS 2dr saloon. A quick once around the block before she's put away for winter and re-wired. Carburettor has been converted to a 38/38 DGAS Weber and K&N 3" tall pancake filter (engine rebuild and new parts fitted since photo of lump). Engine retains original cam shaft to keep stock characteristics and maintain torque lower done the rpm's. Head has been skimmed, all internals replaced. Very small hone/overbore with new pistons rods shells etc. Inlet manifold has been ported and polished and step down between Weber and original Solex carb ground away and polished out. Facet red top ticker fuel pump (now located to rear) and Filter King glass filter and pressure gauge. Luminition ignition with rev limiter. Full stainless Exhaust, with just up and over axel to be replaced next.....but keeping Cherry Bomb silencer! ;-) She has just had the engine stripped down and fully rebuilt and has only done around 300m since. Hence why I don't open the taps fully.......yet! At around 2k i'll have her set up again, but at the moment she's a little lean low end, and rich up top.
