In 1952, Ford began building the M series. The first model, the 12M – the number 12 derived from the engine capacity of 1.2 litres, while M stood for masterpiece (“Meisterstück” in German) – replaced the outdated “hunchback Taunus” and was the first new design of the Cologne plant after the war. The M series (1952-1959) featured a modern ponton body in a monocoque construction and was nicknamed “globe Taunus” (“Weltkugeltaunus”) due to the miniature globe on top of the grille. Power came from a petrol engine with 28 kW (38 hp), which sent drive to the rear wheels by means of a three-speed transmission with steering column-mounted gear selector. In order to be able to offer a vehicle in the middle class segment, the 15M was added to the Taunus model range between 1955 and 1959. The new engine now had – for the first time with Ford – hanging valves and produced 44 kW (55 hp) from 1.5 litres of capacity. There were also slight visual changes, such as a wider radiator grille and larger tail lights. As of September 1955, there was a deLuxe version with a modified radiator grille, two-colour paintwork and other extras. In total, over 247,000 of the 12M and almost 128,000 of the 15M were produced. By the way, at the last original Mille Miglia in 1957, a Ford Taunus 15M achieved the class victory.
