1971 Ford Torino GT
1971 Ford Torino GT
This car was named after the city of Turin (Torino, in Italian), considered "the Italian Detroit". The Torino was initially an upscale variation of the intermediate sized Ford Fairlane, which Ford produced between 1962 and 1972.
For consignment a Torino GT with its fastback, open headlamps, yellow respray, and upgraded wheels. A mostly original car, with some upgrades.
With fairly straight steel body panels wrapped in Grabber Yellow, we see original badging which shows some pitting and rust, chrome which has some fading, and brite work which remains in nice condition. Body matched racing mirrors adorn the doors, a top dead centered hood scoop, wide stainless rocker moldings with a 3D GT badge on the lower front quarters, clean drip moldings and window surrounds, and a full rear quarter to rear quarter brake light/reflector finishes off the body. Noted is a dent in the top driver's side front quarter panel. New blue bulbed headlight assemblies have been added on. Sporty wheels are wrapped by raised white lettered tires, which are a bit wider than the factory ones this car would have been born with.
A swing of the door, and we are met with a black covered door panel with a chromed spear trim, and some corresponding spear pattern stitching. Manual window cranks, and a toggle for the sport mirrors is also noted. Moving inside we sit on a black vinyl split back bench up front, and a full bench in the rear, both in excellent condition. A clutter free black dash with all its factory parts, knobs, and gauges fronts the split bench, and is also in excellent crack free, fade free condition. Black carpet covers the floor, and also has no fading or staining. The headliner remains nice and tight, with no markings or tears. Let's just say for this interior black is beautiful.
A lift of the long hood and we are met with a very clean, and shiny engine bay. All buttoned up this 351ci Cleveland V8 with a 2-barrel carburetor on top, blue cover, and blue valve covers, consigner states it runs smoothly and has no problems. A C4 3-speed automatic transmission is on the back of this mill and drives a Ford 9” 2.75 rear.
A nicely preserved rust-free environment under here with a strong frame, and mar free floorboards. A new exhaust system is present, as well as Disc brakes all around with new hoses for them, and new brake cylinders all around, all recently installed. Original factory undercoating is there and was left there so as to not hide anything that would be a surprise. Consigner also states there are headers included with the sale of this car.
Well maintained, clean, rust free, Grabber Yellow respray, beautiful original interior, and some power under the hood, you are ready to put a tiger in your tank and burn some rubber!
