Sweet Torino, my family loves Fords along with Chrysler & a few other companies.


We had a green 1974 Ford F-100/150 first year SuperCab but it was stolen years ago.

Torino's are great cars , They were a lot of them on the Race track back in the 70's I love the one's with the paint on the side fades from one color to the others. I always thought they were cool. Smile

Thanks guys. My family is the same way. Dad has a 65 vette, mom has a 78 280z datsun, dad has been rebuilding a 68 charger. We love all old cars. Alot of people don't know about the torinos and always ask why. I say to be different. That is what led us to the idea of chrisitine.

Nice Torino!

You seldom see the '70-'71 Torino cars and Rancheros at car shows anymore. They are quite popular judging by how quickly my parts cars have parted out, however.

Joe, I believe he has a Cleveland in the Torino.

You'd be surprised how many car guys don't know the difference between a 351 Cleveland, a 351 Windsor, or a 351 Midland, but all are totally different, and offered as stock engines during this time period.

I know 351M as in modified but not Midland, if I can remember right my dad doesn't like the 351M/400's because they cracked & so forth easily.

PostSubject: Beefing up the old 72 gran-torino   Sun Feb 10, 2013 11:18 pm

I had a 1972 Grand Torino with cowl induction hood scoop, and I took out the 351 windsor and shoe spooned in a 460 out of a 1972 Lincoln. Boy the fun I had with that Torino. The 351 windsor put out about 300 hp or so but now with the 460cid with ederbrock torquer intake and a carter competition Carb 850 CFM stall torque converter and a C-6 tranny with B&M transpack shift improver. I got on the dyno in Louiseville Ky. it rapped out 435 BHP at rear wheels. I was tickled to death.
