Love American muscle, but want a car that sets you apart from the Mustang and Camaro crowd?  This stunning Torino GT SportsRoof is just the car for you.

Finished in eye-popping Bright Red with a Black vinyl top and factory correct laser stripes and hand-applied pinstripes, this car is further accentuated by a Black vinyl roof and Red vinyl interior.  Its finish has a deep and brilliant luster that will get the looks on the highway and at cruise-ins alike.  You will also appreciate this car’s ice cold factory air conditioning and power steering.  Magnum 500 chrome wheels complete the package.

Under the hood is its original 351 CID Cleveland V-8 engine with original 2 barrel carburetor mated to its original SelectShift C4 automatic transmission with a 3.89 Ford Traction-Lok limited slip rear end.  Its original 3.00 rear end will also be included with sale.  The engine was completely rebuilt approximately 8,000 miles ago and runs and drives like new.  The transmission was also serviced at the same time, including replacement of its clutch plates.

Ford’s 1971 Torino lineup spanned the full gamut of models, from sedate sedans and practical wagons to the sporty GT models, which featured several options as standard equipment, in addition to styling cues that were unique to the GT.  Among these were the following:

  • Tinted glass backlite
  • Pleated all vinyl interior
  • Dual color keyed racing mirrors
  • Hood scoop
  • Wide-oval white sidewall tires
  • Dark argent rocker panel moldings
  • Bright drip and full belt moldings
  • Unique tail lamps recessed behind expanded metal appliqué
  • Hub caps and trim rings

Originally a California car, this classic received a full restoration in 2004, including complete rebuild of the engine, sandblasting of body to bare metal prior to professional repaint in its original color, new vinyl top, new seat covers and headliner, new interior door handles, detailing of the engine compartment, and sandblasting and detailing of the undercarriage.  Photocopies of photographs documenting the restoration process will be provided with sale.

Also included with sale are this car’s original build sheet, 1971 Ford Service Manuals, and restoration guides.  The following additional parts will also be provided to the next owner of this car:

  • 429 CID V-8 with 4 barrel carburetor and C6 automatic transmission from a 1973 Thunderbird
  • Edelbrock 4 barrel intake manifold for 351 CID V-8
  • Holley 600 carburetor for 351 CID V-8
  • Original 3.00 rear end
  • Original wheels with hub caps and trim rings

A few items of note are some minor superficial cracks in the dash pad, as well as a crack in the steering wheel.  There is also minor wear in the interior.  In addition, there is some minor wear on the chrome and bright work and a few minor dings near the right rear wheel well that should be noted.  None of these items detracts from the overall appearance of the car.

If an eye-catching and unique American muscle car is what you desire, this Torino GT is for you!
