Chassis no. EX54GJ01940. Blue over tan. 2300/108hp Ford Cologne V-6, single Solex 2-barrel carb, 4-speed, wire wheels, console, woodrim steering wheel, wood dash and console trim, later Sanyo cassette stereo, Veglia gauges.

Evaluation: Represented as one of about 2000 built and fewer than 200 still in existence. Built by Officine Stampaggi Industrialist (OSI), affiliated with Ghia, on a Ford Taunus platform with styling mainly credited to Sergio Sartorelli. Sold and serviced at European Ford dealerships.

This one is largely original with an old repaint, replacement seats, and Jaguar wire wheels fitted. Paint looks mostly good. Lightly aged interior with some visible cracks in the dash top and discolored headliner and door panels. The engine looks a little tired, but it’s complete and a modern aluminum radiator has been added. An oddball, but a strikingly handsome one that is sure to start lots of conversations.

Bottom Line: Bonhams’ presale estimate turned out to be a bit ambitious for this car that is certainly interesting but also obscure and a little bit tired. The more humble, mass-market Ford platform underneath also limits its appeal somewhat, and if it were purebred Italian underneath it would surely have sold for a lot more. Both parties should be happy with this result, especially the new owner, who will surely never see themselves coming the other way in this thing.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
