The Torino has remain pretty much all stock & in original condition. The top was originally Black & a receipt shows that 10/84the owner changed it over to aWhite. The top is in poor condition.
Very solid California body with beautiful floors, frame structure, rockers & trunk pan. Very straight body other then a small dent passenger fender.
The original paint shows its honestly. It was washed and waxed, took all dirt off of it. A buffer would make it look like glass my opinion.
The interior is all original, missing thefactory AM radio. Looks to have had door speakers at one time. Its actually in good shape for its age. Seams on both seats opened.
Has not attempted to get it running - NOT Running. Original engine down to the air cleaner. The car does roll / steer & hold air in the old tires. _______________________
Overall, this is a "Barn Find Survivor" that would make a perfect candidate for restoration or a car you would leave original & get it running. I would leave it alone, just get it running well.
There only original paint once...
Either way, its super cool - rare Triple Black color combo - awesome options & documented California original ownership which makes this a one of a kind Torino.
