In loving memory of Dr. Ing. Sergio Sartorelli (1928-2009).
Updated Mar. 7, 2016 - see what's new in the bottom of this page.

Welcome to my Ford OSI 20m TS homepage. This page is about the OSI 20m TS with everything related with it and is specially dedicated to Dr. Ing. Sergio Sartorelli, the OSI 20m TS designer.

I would like to thank dozens of readers from around the world who write me in a regular basis with informations of another found OSI or simply another press article about Officine Stampaggi Industriali. The German and French friends are specially active. I also would like to welcome any reader to mail me with his questions - no mail will be unanswered. And please sign my Guestbook and visit the Forum.

There are cars in the OSI Registry section. Thank you all for helping.

Special thanks to Oliver and Thomas for their constant support.


OSI 20m TS 50 year celebration

The OSI-IG club from Germany is going to celebrate the 50 years of the 20m TS model in August 27/28 in the Georghausen Palace, near Cologne where it was first presented in January 10, 1967.

Apparently, the French club already confirmed the presence. I will be there for sure.
I'll give you more details very soon. You can check the OSI-IG site here.

Oliver and I have been talking about the Georghausen Palace press conference for a while. Giacomo Bianco attended the show and maybe because of him, there were dogs and horses in the event. In an earlier interview to Ward's Quarterly he said he preferred horses and dogs over cars. Beautiful mannequins wearing the latest models of the International Wool Secretariat turned it into a  very glamorous event. We know that they took 7 OSIs 20m TS to the show. From all the pictures we could find, the following licence plates were there: K-04789, K-04741, K-JP 499 (red), K-04234, K-04324 and K-04626 (this last one is not clear). Later press articles had K-JP 917 (a metallic dark blue), K-JP 922, K- M 20 and K-RM 910 (dark yellow) but this last one already has the production series headlights' rings. It would be fantastic to find out if any of the cars on the press conference are still around...

Carsten Zimmermann - Germany - EX54HA02963


Carsten just sent me a really nice mail about his car. He bought it from a Ford dealer in the near of Trier in Germany. Rememeber: this car was for sale on Autoscout for 39.900,00€...

The mileage is now 86.000 Km, and Carsten drove 4000 Km so far. Originally sold in Switzerland, it was imported to Germany in 1985 but this is the first registration in Germany. The instruments are Jaeger. Half of the cars I have recorded with Jaeger instruments were sold in Switzerland. Is there a connection? Also, just like VIN HB02735 the weight of the car is 1500 Kg (760 front/820 rear) and this numbers are punched, not printed, again like 2735. There is a discussion about this on the forum.

Pirelli Cinturato Tyres - Longstone Tyres

Last week my Pirelli Cinturato arrived from United Kingdom. Finally my car will be on wheels after so long. Check My OSI section.

I bought them on Longstone Classic Tyres from UK and the guys were so helpful that I must share everything with you. They've got this great site packed with information and facts that all the classic car lovers must see.
