In May 1948, the new Ford Taunus G73A was exhibited at the Hanover Export Fair. The 1948 Ford Taunus was a small fast-back saloon with two rear hinged doors. In May 1950 Ford introduced the Taunus Special, which featured a four-speed gear change controlled with a column-mounted lever. Externally the “Special” made extensive use of chrome, notably on an enlarged front grill and on the bumpers. The rear window was enlarged and flashing-light direction indicators replaced semaphore-style flippers. January 1951 saw the introduced of a Taunus de Luxe, with a one-piece windscreen and many extras.
