Cohort Pic(k) of the Day: 1971 Ford Taunus 1300L – Before and After

Corey Behrens spotted this Taunus 1300L in Heiloo, NL on June 18th, looking a bit down on its heels. And then he shot it again on July 6th, having been perked up a bit.

This is the other angle from June 18th. It’s exhaust pipe looks a bit…misplaced. And it’s got a tow hitch; with all of 1300cc and 55 hp, that must be a leisurely affair, heading off to Italy with a travel trailer.

But now it’s sporting some new alloy wheels and tires! Looks so much perkier.

It also looks like it’s riding a bit high, which doesn’t exactly fit in with the sporty image the new wheels are giving off. Maybe a lowered suspension is next? And a warmed-over 2 L version of the “Pinto” engine, perhaps?
