Ford Taunus?  Whoa.....that's a rare bird on this side of the pond!
Although you may be able to get NOS brake cylinders from eBay Germany, (I 
searched "Taunus brems*" and got a few listings for rotors, pads and hoses) 
I'd be leery about the condition of the rubber seals.  Brakes on these old 
cars were not stellar compared to today's....you don't need a failure 
compounding the problem.  You might be able to find an Oldtimer club in 
Germany, that may have a cross-reference to something more modern and easily 
purchased, or you could try getting the ones on the car redone by White Post 
Restorations or a similar company.  We have a local company - John Stewart 
Power Brake - that does sleeving and seal replacement on old brake system 
hydraulic components (I had the master cylinder on the '62 DKW done by 
them - they did a good job).
When you get her on the road.....say....you've heard about the May 16-18 GTG 
in Carlisle, PA right?  There'll be some folks coming from NJ that you could 
convoy with.....
