Still from the 1971 Italian-French Jacques Tati film "Trafic" (end scene), filmed at the parking lot of the Amsterdam Ford factory (Amsterdam Assembly, 1932-1981). In 1971 Amsterdam Assembly produced only the English Ford Cortina MkIII (TC1) for the European market. The German Fords Taunus TC1, 17M/20M/26M (Taunus) P7b and Capri MkI were build in Genk (Belgium) or Cologne (Germany). The American Fords (Mustang and LTD) were imports.
