1976 Ford Torino GRAN TORINO Additional Info:

1976 "Starsky & Hutch" Gran Torino - 81,000 actual miles. ORIGINAL ONE of ONE. C-6 Automatic on floor, RARE Lima 460-V-8 4V (Less than 1% of Torinos made in 1976 had this engine), 4 bbl.Carb, 3.00 Rear, Dual Exhaust, 2B Red Exterior, Original Black Vinyl Interior W/ Bucket Seats. See Marti Report for all equipment.

This car was originally custom ordered at a Ford dealership in Tennessee by a fan of the TV show. He did not want the Limited Edition Ford was manufacturing (1002 of them) due to the problem of the "stripe" not matching the TV car and other that Ford was applying to the car. He wrote detailed notes (see pic) of exactly what he wanted to replicate the TV car. Soon after, it was built next to the Limited versions in the Chicago, Ill. plant and rolled off the line on May 21, 1976. The "2B" color code (Same as TV cars) was only used on Limited edition and custom ordered cars in 1976. The "TV Stripe" was applied at the Ford dealership paint department. It was delivered June 10, 1976.

This car is the only one built with this package ( see Marti Report ) out of the 209,168 made.

This car has lived it's life entirely in the south and has no rust. It has always been stored indoors and went through paint restoration in 2006 to match original paint job. At the same time, the interior metal was treated with POR-15 to further protect the car for the future.

Condition of this car is exceptional. Metal is original and never in any accidents. There is no body damage and paint is perfect. There are no rips or tears on the upholstery and is all original. There are no cracks on original dash and all interior parts are OEM and also in exceptional shape.

Mechanically the car just went through a complete tune-up and maintenance at Car-Tech in North Scottsdale. The engine is strong and transmission is smooth. Tires: BF Goodrich Radial T/A are in decent shape. I've kept it original. Not a fan of chrome valve covers, etc..

NOTE: Please don't email me about other cars that are for sale and or, sold here. I probably know as much as you do. If you want a S&H car and do not care about history, referencing Movie cars that were transformed/modified and other, cars that used to be green, blue, pink, brown, swapped engines, missing OEM parts, cars needing restoration, etc....Please buy one of those. This car is for a picky owner that wants uniqueness and opportunity for investment.

This is a car that is irreplaceable. It has lived a very well cared for life and turns more heads than the most expensive cars on the road. I have owned this since 2005 and the only reason for parting with it is the need of more cash for a business that I am investing in. If I don't receive at least the reserve price, I will just keep it. I was lucky to find it after looking for a long time. I owned a blue one as a kid and always wanted the "real deal". I believe this car, with it's one of a kind status, it's unique history and care, will appreciate in value. I have all the original paperwork, build sheet and manuals. It is a blast to own and if it sells, it will be a very sad day.

I am more than happy to answer any questions and feel free to contact me by email first and then if a discussion is needed, I will talk to you by phone.
