1974 Ford Torino Two Door Coupe
This 1974 Gran Torino 77000 original mile rust free California car .
This car is super straight ..
Thousands and Thousands of dollars spent on it to make it look like The Iconic Starsky and Hutch car used in the made-for-tv movie as well as the TV show.. from 1975 to 1979. A complete paint job was done with the original 2B red matched to the door jambs... The trunk jams were repainted along with inside the trunk lid and trunk jams ....But not the floor of trunk ...The front inner fenders were painted but not the firewall... The door jams are original paint.. this was not a restoration this was a Frame on clean up..and paint job ..... All of the inner and outer tie rods lower ball joints on rear swing arm bushings replaced.. all the breaks have been overhauled.. new brake pads and calipers on the front new brake shoes and the drums were turned not or resurfaced in the back.. The entire bottom of the car was cleaned and painted while assembled back to the original 2B red. It does have highly polished aluminum alloy wheels with bias ply Firestone... preiod correct tires. If it's been a long time or if you've never driven on bias ply tires ...This car does not drive like a brand new Corvette or a 2016 Mustang it is a 42 year old car.
Being a 42 year old car it does have imperfections ....but you are purchasing a vehicle that you would spend thousands more doing it yourself.. it does Drive well and it won't leave you on the side of the highway as far as I can say .. I don't know if its the car I would drive from coast to coast.. but the mileage that I have put on it drives quite well. All of the brightwork Chrome has been straightened and refinished it is not perfect. But it is pretty damn close ...it's very beautiful!!! finding parts for this car is extremely hard and rare especially wheel opening moldings rocker moldings and other bright trim.. the rear tail lights are brand new old stock.. the gaskets have been replaced around the door jambs trunk and the upper weather strip.. with what is available for restoration parts that are available for this car.. these days.. it has a 351 Cleveland Motor 2 barrel carb with 77 k mile and an FMX transmission which has been rebuilt.. new gas tank and sending unit.. under the hood a new hood liner has been placed ...all the inner Fender Wells top and bottom along with the frame as much as could be painted while leaving it on the car have been painted on the car top and bottom,new decals and it was hand signed by Paul Michael Glaser " David Srarsky " and Antonio Fargas "Huggy Bear" on the trunk Also Paul Michael Glaser autograph on the inside of the car ... on glove box... countless other items have been replaced on this vehicle. The seat has been reupholstered.. but to remind you once again ...This vehicle is a 42 year Old Car . Most everything works in the car. Including the air conditioner.. the paint job is polyurethane single stage... single stage is just like the original car came from Factory..The Stripe is single stage as well just like the original 1976 through 79 ... TV Car number 1 With single stage paint and vinyl pinstriping countless bolts and nuts have been replanted to gold cadium and silver cadium plating..
I am intentionally downplaying this car quality-wise just because there are some people out there that might expect it to be more for Less...
