An Exceptional Example!
- Paint and Chrome
This Toronado’s Garnett finish has a deep shine that offers a nice contrast with the black factory vinyl top.
The chrome and stainless are in excellent condition and nicely compliment the paint.
And, the body and underside of the car appear to be free of visible structural rust and/or corrosion.
The seat upholstery is black and shows a minor amount of wear, consistent with such a low odometer reading. The door panels are in very good condition, and the dash is free from cracks. The headliner and carpeting are likewise in very nice condition.
The engine is the 425 cid V-8 which puts out an impressive 385 h.p. The engine starts right up and does what it was intended to do: be docile when you are cruising but step right up when you want power.
The transmission is a Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic that is capable of harnessing all the engine’s horsepower and convert it into a smooth ride that makes this a sporty luxury touring coupe.
- Comfort and Safety Systems
The Toronado represented a unique blend of performance and luxury, and so power steering and power brakes were made part of the package. This car has factory air,
It is also a car where almost everything works: even the AM radio and its electric antenna! The horn will need some diagnosis and the clock thinks it’s still 1967.
