1976 Ford Torino NO RESERVE! SUPER CLEAN 100% ALL ORIGINAL SURVIVOR 120PIX+VIDEO

NO RESERVE!! ON THIS HARD TO FIND LITTLE TIME CAPSULE 1976 FORD GRANADA WITH AN INCREDIBLE 96K ORIGINAL LOW MILES!!! ( AUCTION ENDS TUESDAY FEBRUARY 20TH @ 6:45PM PST) THIS IS A 1 FAMILY OWNER ALL ORIGINAL SURVIVOR IN 100% ORIGINAL PAINT AND IS IN FACTORY UN-TOUCHED CONDITION ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE ORIGINAL STEREO, HUB CAP, AND, ENGINE DECALS, MARKINGS, LITTLE GROMMETS AND FASTENERS UNDER THE HOOD. THIS LITTLE COUPE CAME OPTIONED WITH THE SPECIAL ORDER GHIA OPTION WITH FULL EXTERIOR TRIM PKG, LOADED WOOD TRIM AND DELUXE BUCKET SEAT TAN INTERIOR, MATCHING TAN VINYL ROOF AND SIDE MOLDINGS, 250 INLINE 6CYL AND DELUXE HUB CAPS. THE GRANADA WAS MADE BY THE MASSES, SO CAN'T REALLY BE LABELED AS A RARE CAR, BUT THEY ARE RARELY SEEN ON THE ROAD TODAY ESPECIALLY IN THIS CONDITION. THIS ERA IN THE AUTOMOTIVE WORLD WAS NOT BUILDING VEHICLES THAT STIRRED MUCH PASSION IN PRODUCTION OR IN OWNERSHIP AND WAS NOT AIMED TO BE VEHICLES THAT WERE MEANT TO BE CHERISHED, BABIED AND LEFT IN THIS KIND OF CONDITION OVER 4O YEARS LATER. THIS ERA OF THE DOMESTIC VEHICLES WERE PURPOSE BUILT BY MANUFACTURES AND PURCHASED BY CONSUMERS TO BE A TRANSPORTATION VEHICLE AND THAT'S IT. THIS GENERATION OF CARS IN AMERICA WERE NOT TYPICALLY LOOKED AFTER OR MAINTAINED THE BEST AND OFTEN DRIVEN HARD UNTIL SOME KIND OF MECHANICAL FAILURE THEN THROWN ASIDE AND REPLACED. MOST OF THE AMERICAN MADE CARS ALONG WITH MANY TRUCKS SAW A SHORT FATE AND OFTEN WERE NO LONGER ON THE ROAD A DECADE LATER AND THE GRANADA WAS USUALLY WAS NO DIFFERENT. OFTEN TIME JUST A SMALL PROBLEM LIKE A STARTER OR FUEL PUMP WOULD PUT THESE CARS OUT TO PASTURE AND IS WHY TODAY OVER 42 YEARS LATER CARS LIKE THIS GRANADA GET SO MANY COMMENTS AND SECOND LOOKS BY PEOPLE. IT'S NOT OFTEN TO SEE ONE STILL CRUISING DOWN THE ROAD, LET ALONE AS MUCH OF A ORIGINAL EXAMPLE AS THIS 76 COUPE. I HAVE BEEN AMAZED WHEN I HAVE HAD THIS CAR OR THE 84 LTD WAGON WE HAVE LISTED OUT BY HOW MANY PEOPLE STOP TO MAKE COMMENTS ON NOT JUST THEIR CONDITION, BUT BY HOW MANY PEOPLE ALWAYS HAVE A GRANADA OR FAIRMONT STORY. IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYONE IN THEIR LATE 20'S TO 60'S HAVE HAD A MAVERICK OR ONE OF THESE CARS IN THEIR FAMILY LINE SOMEWHERE AND THEY ALWAYS START WITH EITHER THE COMMENT " BOY YOU DON'T SEE THOSE ANYMORE" OR "I CAN'T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I SAW ONE OF THOSE" WHILE THIS CAR STILL OF COURSE WILL SHOW SOME YEARS AND AGING IT STILL HAS THAT FACTORY FRESH TIME CAPSULE LOOK AND IS A TRUE TESTAMENT TO THE CARE AND LOVE THIS CAR WAS GIVEN BY IT'S OWNER, AS IT JUST SIMPLY WOULDN'T BE HERE TODAY OR LOOK AS GOOD AS IT DOES TODAY IF IT WASN'T LOOKED AFTER! THIS IS TRULY A VERY CLEAN ALL ORIGINAL SURVIVOR FIND, SO PLEASE TAKE THE TIME LOOK THROUGH ALL 140 DETAILED PICS AND ALL VIDEOS OF SWEET LITTLE LOW MILER GRANADA COUPE .AS MUCH AS I LOVE TO LEAVE ORIGINAL CARS ALONE, IF YOU WERE LOOKING TO BUILD THE ULTIMATE SLEEPER THIS COULDN'T FIT THE BILL MORE. THIS CAR WOULD BE GREAT LEFT AS IS AND ENJOYED IN ORIGINAL CONDITION FOR YEARS TO COME, BUT ALSO WOULD MAKE A GREAT V8 PLATFORM WITH A LARGE ENGINE BAY, ALREADY HAS A 5 LUG WHEEL, STRONG REAR-END AND THE NICE POWER DISC BRAKE SETUP THESE CARS COME WITH IS ALSO THE SET-UP MUSTANG GUYS LIKE TO STEAL FOR A SWAP. THIS CAR HAS A CLEAN WASHINGTON STATE TITLE AND HAS BEEN IN THE NORTHWEST IT'S WHOLE LIFE. WE USE NO WINTER SALT ON THE ROADS IN THIS STATE LEAVING THIS CAR WITH A VERY SOLID BODY THAT IS ABOUT 98% RUST FREE AND HAS JUST A TINY AREA THE SIZE OF A HALF DOLLAR BEHIND THE DRIVER REAR TIRE. THIS A 100% TOP TO BOTTOM ORIGINAL PAINT CAR THAT STILL HAS A NICE HIGH GLOSS AND SMOOTH FEEL, THE INTERIOR IS ALL ORIGINAL AND IS IN AMAZING SHAPE WITH JUST A LITTLE WEAR ON THE CARPET AND SOME SUN FADING ON SOME OF THE WOOD TRIM AND TWO REAR PASSENGER SIDE PANELS EVEN UNDER THE HOOD THE ENGINE BAY IS SURROUNDED BY SMOOTH GLOSSY FACTORY PAINT WITH A SUPER CLEAN, UNTOUCHED I6 MOTOR THAT RUN LIKE A LITTLE SEWING MACHINE AND HAS ALL ORIGINAL DEALER ASSEMBLY MARKINGS AND DECALS IN AMAZINGLY CLEAN AND INTACT CONDITION. THE UNDERCARRIAGE IS HONEST, CLEAN AND RUST FREE. THIS IS A VERY QUICK LITTLE COUPE THAT PULLS STRONG AT ALL SPEEDS THANKS TO THE LITTLE TORQUE MOTOR THAT IS A BULLET PROOF MOTOR AND BACKED BY AUTOMATIC C4 TRANSMISSION. NOW FOUR DECADES LATER THIS HAS GOT TO BE ONE OF THE THE NICEST AND MOST ORIGINAL GRANADA'S ON THE PLANET! BODY-THE BODY IS STUNNING ON THIS 42 YEAR OLD CAR AND IS TRULY ALL ORIGINAL AND IN AMAZING SHAPE. IT IS NEARLY A 100% DRY AND RUST FREE CAR THAT HAS AN INCREDIBLE DEEP AND EXTREME HIGH GLOSS FACTORY FINISH. THE OXFORD WHITE PAINT HAS THAT NICE SMOOTH FEEL AND WET LOOK WITH NICE SHINE, BUT IS HARD TO CAPTURE ON A CAMERA, BUT I TRIED TO SHOW THE CRISP REFLECTION IT GIVES IN THE VIDEO AND PICS. ALL THE CHROME AND STAINLESS TRIM IS IN NICE SHAPE WITH A CRISP DEEP MIRROR REFLECTION, THE LIGHT LENSES ARE ALL FREE OF SUN FADING AND FULL OF BRIGHT ORIGINAL COLORS, EVEN THE CLEAR FRONT CORNER LIGHTS ARE CRYSTAL CLEAR AND EVERY PIECE OF GLASS IS ORIGINAL ON THIS CAR AND FREE OF ANY FOGGING, CRACKS OR CHIPS. THIS CAR HAS NEVER BEEN IN A ACCIDENT WITH ALL PANEL BOLTS AND GAPS FACTORY AND UN-TOUCHED. ALL THE FACTORY ORIGINAL TAN PAINTED PINSTRIPE IS STILL IN PLACE AN DIN NICE SHAPE. ALL THE RUBBERS ARE NICE AND SOFT BLACK FREE OF CRACKS ALONG WITH THE DOOR FELTS TO THE SIDE GLASS THAT SHOWS IT HAS BEEN GARAGED AND WELL CARED FOR. EVEN THE PAINT AROUND THE FRONT AND REAR BUMPER IS AS SMOOTH AND GLOSSY AS THE REST OF THE CAR. THIS EXTERIOR OF THIS CAR HAS VERY MINIMAL WEAR NOT ONLY FOR A CAR THIS AGE, BUT EVEN FOR A VEHICLE A FEW DECADES YOUNGER. THE LITTLE THINGS THAT STOOD OUT TO ME ON THIS CAR IS THE CHROME TRIM AND EMBLEMS ON THE PLASTIC LIGHTS IS STILL CLEAR AND CRISP, THE HOOD ORNAMENT HAS SURVIVED AND IS STANDING TALL AND THE PAINTED BODY TRIM FILLER PIECES AROUND THE BUMPERS ARE IN AMAZING SHAPE WITH NO DAMAGE. THEY ARE MADE OF A MATERIAL THAT IS LIKE A FLEXIBLE RUBBER/PLASTIC MIXED MATERIAL THAT FORD AND GM USED ON MANY CADILLAC'S AND FULL SIZE CARS, BUT WAS ONLY DONE FOR A SHORT TIME DUE TO IT BEING VERY PRONE TO CRACKS AND HOLES AS IT GETS VERY BRITTLE IF NOT CARED FOR OR IN MAJOR HEAT. I'LL GIVE THIS GRANADA PRAISES ALL DAY LONG AND I WISH COULD FIND ORIGINAL SURVIVORS LIKE THIS EVERY WEEK, BUT IT HAS SEEN 42 YEARS OF LIFE AND ROADS, SO IT WILL STILL OF COURSE COME WITH SOME EXPECTED WEAR AND AGING THAT YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICS AND POINTED OUT IN THE VIDEO AS I WALK AROUND. IT HAS YOUR TYPICAL SMALL STONE CHIPS ALONG THE LOWER ENDS OF THE BODY, SOME SMALL INNER DOOR EDGE CHIPS, SOME TINY LITTLE USAGE CHIPS OR MARKS IN SOME OF THE PANELS NEAR THE TRUNK AND PASSENGER ENTRY AREAS, THE ORIGINAL VINYL TOP IS FADED AND CRACKED IN SOME AREAS AROUND THE REAR GLASS, BUT YOU WILL NOT FIND A SINGLE RUST BUBBLE AROUND THE REAR GLASS. THERE IS A HALF FOOTBALL SIZED DENT ON THE VERY BOTTOM FRONT OF THE PASSENGER FENDER, SOME CURB SCUFFS ON THE EDGES OF SOME OF THE HUB CAPS, SOME SMALL DINGS IN THE STAINLESS TRIM AROUND THE WHEEL OPENING, THE REAR TAN PANEL BELOW THE TANK AND SIDE TRIM IS A LITTLE FADED ALONG WITH THE LITTLE GHIA EMBLEM ON THE REAR SIDE GLASS. THE SILVER AREAS AROUND THE HEADLIGHT BEZEL AND IN THE GRILLE IS A LITTLE FADED AND AS MENTIONED ABOVE THE ONLY AREAS OF RUST IS THE SMALL SPOT AT THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE DRIVER REAR QUARTER PANEL JUST AFTER THE TIRE THEN A COUPLE TINY BUBBLES UNDER THE PAINT JUST IN FRONT OF THE DRIVER REAR TIRE. IT IS NO SMALL FEAT TO MAKE IT OVER 4 DECADES AND HAVE A CARS PAINT, TRIM, LIGHTS AND CHROME LOOK THIS NICE ESPECIALLY ON THIS ERA OF CAR, SHOWING THE LOVE AND PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP IT RECEIVED. THIS TRULY IS JUST A CLEAN LITTLE CLASSIC AND GUARANTEED TO COMMENTS IN PARKING LOTS WITH ITS CRISP, WELL LOVED, CLEAN AND ORIGINAL CONDITION! INTERIOR-THIS IS A 100% PET AND SMOKE FREE INTERIOR SINCE NEW. INSIDE IT IS IN VERY NICE ORIGINAL CONDITION FROM TOP TO BOTTOM AND BACK TO FRONT! .WHEN YOU LOOK IN THIS INTERIOR ALL YOU SEE IS PLUSH 70'S LIVING WITH CRISP BRIGHT TAN, NICE CHROME AND GLOSSY RICH WOOD TRIM. THE PAINT ALONG DOOR JAMB AND ENTRY AREAS IS SMOOTH AND SHINY AND EVERY LIGHT, WITCH AND GAUGE WORKS ALONG WITH THE HEATER AND ORIGINAL RADIO. THE FRONT AND REAR SEATS ARE IN PERFECT SHAPE WITH NO FADING, HOLES, CUTS OR BREAKDOWN AND ARE AS COMFORTABLE AS THEY WERE IN 76 ROLLING OFF THE LOT. NICE HEADLINER WITH NO HOLES OR SAGGING AND TIGHT SUN-VISORS THAT STAY IN PLACE. THE DOORS OPEN AND CLOSE SMOOTHLY WITH NO DOOR HINGE SAG, THE WINDOWS GO UP AND DOWN SMOOTHLY AND THE LOCK OPERATE PERFECT. EVEN THE BACK PIECE BELOW THE WINDOW IS INTACT, BUT A LITTLE FADED. THE DASH IS IN EXCELLENT SHAPE WITH NO CRACKS OR HOLES, NICE CLEAR GAUGES, A PERFECT DASH PAD AND THE ASH TRAY IS CLEAN AND NEVER BEEN USED. REALLY ON THE INTERIOR THE ONLY SIGNS OF AGE OR WEAR IS SOME FADING IN THE WOOD AROUND THE GAUGES, ON TOP OF THE DOOR PANELS ALONG WITH A LITTLE ABOVE THE ARM RESTS AND THE REAR SIDE PANELS ODDLY ARE THE ONLY PLASTIC TRIM THAT ARE FADED. THE PRESENTS NICE ESPECIALLY FOR IT'S AGE AND STILL MOSTLY HAS THE FLUFFY FACTORY LOOK, BUT DOES HAVE SOME SLIGHT DARKENING IN THE SIDE ENTRY ALONG WITH THE FOOT RESTING AREAS AND IT HAS BEEN WORN FROM THE DRIVER LEFT FOOT JUST UNDER THE KICK PANEL/E-BRAKE AREA. THE INTERIOR OF THE TRUNK LOOKS NICE AND COMPLETE WITH THE ORIGINAL CARPET, SPARE AND JACK SET-UP, MINT ORIGINAL DECALS AND SHINY WHITE PAINT UNDER THE TRUCK LID. NO LEAKS, BUT A NEW SEAL WOULDN'T HURT AND THE LID DOESN'T ALWAYS STAY FULLY UP. OVERALL THIS INTERIOR IS TRULY IS IN HARD TO FIND ORIGINAL CONDITION THAT IS VERY CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE! MECHANICAL- THIS UNIQUE CLASSIC FORD HONESTLY IS A VERY CLEAN 42 YEAR OLD CAR UNDER THE HOOD AND BODY. THE UNDERSIDE OF THE BODY AND FRONT WHEEL WELLS AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICS HAS NO MUD, GREASE OR GRIME BUILD UP AND IS VERY CLEAN AND DRY. THIS MOTOR DOES NOT LEAK AND IS SHOCKING ONCE YOU POP THE HOOD OPEN HOW CLEAN AND SANITARY THIS CARS ENGINE BAY AND MOTOR IS. IT HAS A FRESH OIL CHANGE, COOLANT, NEW WATER PUMP AND THE C4 AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION WAS JUST FULLY REBUILT!! IT DELIVERS A VERY TIGHT DRIVE AND FEEL WITH SOLID AND RESPONSIVE BRAKES AND STEERING WITH NO PLAY OR SLACK. DELIVERS A SQUEAK AND RATTLE FREE DRIVE THAT SOAKS UP THE BUMPS. IT HAS THE DEPENDABLE FACTORY 250 INLINE 6CYL THAT RUNS PERFECTLY SMOOTH, HAS EASY COLD STARTS WITH THE ELECTRIC CHOKE, NO EXHAUST LEAKS AND PULLS SMOOTH ON HIGHWAY OR BACK ROAD DRIVES. THE AUTOMATIC TRANS IS JUST REBUILT SO IS FLAWLESS AND SHIFTS SMOOTHLY THROUGH THE GEARS AND DOWN SHIFTS IMMEDIATELY WHEN ASKED TO. THIS LITTLE COUPE HAS NICE LITTLE PEP, ISN'T STRESS FULL IN TRAFFIC AND DOES NOT HAVE CARB LOAD UP OR OVER HEATING ISSUES . IT IS EQUIPPED WITH VERY EASY TO OPERATED POWER DISC BRAKES AND POWER STEERING AND WHEN CHECKED OUT THEY SAID THE BRAKE PADS HAD ALMOST FULL LIFE LEFT. THE ONLY THING WE DID NOT ADDRESS AND LEAVING TO THE NEXT OWNER IS THE TIRES. THE TIRES ARE THE FACTORY STYLE REPLACEMENT AND HAVE NO DRY CRACKS OR SAFETY ISSUES, BUT THERE IS TWO DIFFERENT STYLE AND MAKES AND YOU CAN FEEL THEY ARE A LITTLE SOFT AROUND CORNERS AND DON'T ROLL GLASS SMOOTH LIKE A NEW SET WOULD. THEY CAN BE LEFT AS, BUT THE CAR DESERVES A NEW SET OF RUBBER AND THE ONLY REASON WE LEFT IT AS IS BECAUSE THE NEXT OWNER MAY TAKE THIS CAR A COUPLE DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS AND MAY TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO STEP UP TO 15" WHEELS, A CUSTOM LOOK AS THE FORD MAGNUM 500 WHEELS LOOK KILLER ON HERE OR CHOOSE TO STAY 14'S AND STOCK CAPS, BUT CHOOSE TO GO UP IN SIZE TO FILL THE WHEEL WELLS. A STOCK SET OF TIRES IS VERY AFFORDABLE DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU GO WITH AND AROUND $70-$85 EACH. WE SCOWER THE NW OREGON AND WA AREA FOR CLEAN LOW MILE CLASSIC RIDES LIKE THIS SO PLEASE GIVE THIS A CAR A GOOD THOROUGH LOOK AND BID ON ITS INCREDIBLE LOW MILES AND RARITY, THESE TYPES OF CAR AND VEHICLES WERE NOT BOUGHT TO PUT IN THE GARAGE AND BABY THEM WITH THIS LEVEL OF CARE AND LOVE AS THIS 1 AND ONLY OWNER HAS. THESE CARS WERE MOSTLY WORKED, HIGHLY USED AND OFTEN ABUSED AND NOT LEFT WITH BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL PAINT AND THIS CRISP FACTORY FRESH LOOK. NOT MANY VEHICLES OF THIS AGE COME UP FOR SALE WITH THIS LOW OF MILES AND CLEAN ORIGINAL BODY LIKE THIS! GOOD LUCK! HIGH BID WINS!!The older the car, the harder it is to define the condition of the vehicle.Most of our vehicles are specialty vehicles or are 15+ years old, and usually trucks. Because of this, it is very difficult to describe each vehicle to everyone’s satisfaction. Based on the bidder'spersonal experience, some bidders will be overly pleased with my description and pictures, and others may feel that I fell short. I postthese auctions based on how I want to see auctions when I’m buying, keeping in mind what I look for, and I try to put your eye's to what I can see and touch. Please help me by asking all questions and letting me know if other pictures are wanted. If you do not see a pic or description of a item or a area on the truck please do not assume anything and ask me about the specifics your a needing or for more pics and i will post every question asked by members so all potential bidders can see. Every car is available for inspection and i personally drive each vehicle before listing it and If anything does not work properly I will let you know. Of course I amonly human and these are mechanical creatures and these are usedvehicles, so please keep this in mind when bidding
