22. Ford OSI 20M TS
Back in the 1960s, Italy was full of small design houses producing interesting variants of regular production cars. Most of those small body shops looked for lucrative contracts with big companies. They could provide them with financial security and a chance to present their creations to a worldwide audience. One of those small firms was OSI who concentrated on producing bodies using a Fiat chassis.
However, their best-known model was actually a Ford. Back in the mid-’60s, OSI teamed with European Ford to produce a limited run of sports cars they based on a mid-size Taunus chassis. The car was called the Ford OSI 20M TS and it had a gorgeous, elegant coupe body and a 2.3-liter V6 engine producing around 110 HP. That’s not much power. Yet since it was light, performance was satisfying to most customers.
