This Ford was never able to shake off its bathtub image

With the Taunus P3, Ford abandoned the trapezoidal outline of its P2 predecessor – and it did not take long for the general populace to come up with a pet name for it. Bathtub was the moniker that started circulating for the sedan from Cologne, which was unveiled in 1960 and neither blessed with tail fins nor with excessive chrome ornamentation. Aside from sporting a no-nonsense look, it also offered significantly greater economy and utility than its forerunner: The modified shape of the body with its considerably more organic curves also reduced fuel consumption by 20%.

Note – Model building item, not a toy! Not suitable for children under 14 years.
