1972 Oldsmobile Toronado
Here's how to stand out in all the best ways without ever breaking the budget. This 1972 Oldsmobile Toronado has been given all the right investments to make sure it has a show-worthy shine and a very corrected (and loaded) presentation.
Nothing says the 1970s better this double-cream presentation with the paint and coordinating hue of vinyl roof. But look at this one a bit closer. The paint has an amazing luster that highlights the subtle curves of this large personal coupe. It's part of an investment earlier this year in a quality respray utilizing a modern clearcoat. The total effect is a period-correct presentation with a shine better than the factory ever could in other words: this coupe is pure nostalgia. More than just the paint, these early second-generation Toronados had a very unique style that makes them instantly memorable. The design of the chrome king bumpers so nicely integrates into the wave styling of the entire car, and this was changed the next year due to federal regulations. So what you're looking at is the ideal year car that is presented correctly, right down to the intricate factory wheel covers.
Inside, the Toronado was all about offering luxuries for both rows of seating. The front-wheel drive gave it a flat floor for the whole carload to stretch out their legs. But up front was still where all the best features were. The split-bench is power adjustable and has an armrest to provide the driver with the feeling of a personal luxury car. In fact, all the features surround the steering wheel to truly envelop the you. It's only a short reach away from luxuries like the power windows, tilt/telescope wheel adjustment, and air conditioning controls. There have even been recent investments to make sure the original elements like the clock and 8-track stereo still work!
Under the hood is the original numbers-matching 455 cubic-inch V8. The Rocket big block makes some of the best power of the era thanks to the factory Rochester four-barrel carburetor that was recently rebuilt. In fact, another great advantage of an early second-generation Toronado is that this is before the era of the catalytic converter. So you can have a highly-original presentation and still have plenty of power for effortless cruising. Furthering this great driving attitude are investments in keeping the big V8 running its best. Besides the rebuilt carb, this has a new fuel pump, starter, alternator, and battery. More new components keep the ride correct, such as new half shafts, upper & lower ball joints, and a front disc brake service. Add in power steering, power brakes, and the three-speed automatic transmission, and this has the best of the '70s cruiser feeling.
Complete with owner's manuals and warranty card, this is a fantastic presentation of a personal luxury machine. So when you can get everything you want for such a reasonable price, you know you need to hurry to grab this day. Call today!!!
