The Most Beautiful Ford in the World: 1967-68 Ford OSI 20m TS

While our American parents were smoking dope in the back of their Mustangs and blasting the Beach Boys, our hipper, richer European parents were blasting the Beach Boys and smoking dope in the backs of these Italian-bodied hotties. OSI, located in Turin, was an Italian Design firm that bent metal for companies such as Alfa Romeo, Fiat and Innocenti. The man who designed the Type III Karmann Ghia, Sergio Sartorelli, penned this triple-sexy American-Italian hybrid. Only around 2000 were produced. Please don't bother looking up specs or performance numbers, as they are depressing (e.g., 0-100 km/h — 62 mph — in 14 seconds). Instead, just make the jump and drool.

In case you were wondering, no, the OSI 20m TS is not a re-bodied Mustang. It is a rebodied Taunus. OSI did have a crack at Lido's pony car, however, with mixed results (see the white car below). And you thought Fabrizio's LA Auto Show concept was a first.
