'Best design still comes from Italy', one says at Ford and invests in a study of the Officine Stammpaggi Industriali in Turin.

The Ford OSI is a bit heavier and more aerodynamic than the base car. It has dual lamps, each equipped with double filament bulbs. Nevertheless all four light only with high beam. And its electrical system still works with 6 volts. The dashboard can not keep pace with the exterior.
