1967 Oldsmobile Toronado, Absolutely Beautiful
The '67 Toronado was the second year for the Toronado and was built in
Lansing Michigan The '67 featured a softer suspension and minor styling
modifications Identifying a '67 Toronado
In 1966 Oldsmobile introduced the front-wheel drive Toronado, the first
Front Wheel Drive car to be built and sold in the U.S. since the 1930s.
(The last one was the Cord) The 1966 Toronado was voted the car of the
year by Motor Trend. In 1967 the body style stayed nearly the same, and
the ride became even better. This was truly one of the first elegant sports
cars. It had luxury styling and interior, with a huge 425 cubic inch
engine with tremendous torque and speed. The car was built to hold five
people comfortably, and had the feel of a sports car. Sales soared for
Oldsmobile, and today many of the cars are front wheel drive.
The '67 Toronado was a truly massive coupe shell, nearly 19 feet long. It
was a real super car with its advanced front wheel drive design. It was
extremely fast and nimble and had a top speed of approximately 130 mph.
The new cost for a Deluxe version of this car was $4,812.00 and was a very
good value. It has been considered a landmark creation.

There is much interesting and significant history. Many consider driving
these cars a tremendously impressive driving experience. Both Hugh Hefner
and Muhammad Ali owned such a special '74 Toronado. It is the brother of
the Eldorado but has better handling and is faster because it is a bit shorter and
weighs less. The ACRS is the same as today's computer controlled air bags
that protect all three front passengers in a crash. The system was proven
to be completely reliable through recent testing by the NHTSA even though
there is alot of misinformation about it on the internet. I have
Technicolor sound films and much to go with them. Both were recently
appraised at $15,000. each but I will accept highest offer even if it is
much lower than their true value. Write and then we can chat on the
telephone. One more thing... Have A Nice Day! :)

I have owned this car for 16 years. It is rarely driven and only on

1967 Olds Tornado RedBlk
Beautiful paint and interior! This car was really a cooperation between
Olds and Cadillac engineers..it was decided to get Olds involved just in
case things didn't work out well. Dealing with the torque of that 425 c.i.
engine, and transmitting it to the front wheels demanded original thinking,
including a novel positioning and design of the automatic transmission. It
demonstrated what could be done when the corporation backed a project.

You're looking at what is without question the nicest 1968 Oldsmobile
Toronado on Earth. With just 10,042 original miles, this triple black
luxury cruiser is at the leading edge of an emerging trend. As stunning as
this car is, imagine the reaction when it hit the streets in the late
1960s! Finished in black with a black vinyl top, it's a rare color
combination from an era when bright metallic were all the rage. As a
low-mile original, you know the car has never been apart, rusty, or
damaged, so all the body gaps are just as the factory did it, and it fits
together extremely well. The guys at Oldsmobile knew they were building
something special, and it would become a halo model for the entire General
Motors corporation, a symbol of their engineering prowess.
The big news for 1968 was indeed big—455 cubic inches big! Generating a
very impressive 375 horsepower and a towering
510 pounds of torque, the wonderful V8 easily moves the Toronado in a way
that says muscle car more than luxury coupe. It is also beautifully and
expertly detailed, with proper Oldsmobile Turquoise paint on the block, a
correct air cleaner and decal, and a lot of bright hardware that looks
fresh off the factory assembly line. Thanks to its outstanding originality,
this car is a veritable road map for restorers and will be a contender at
the highest levels, and not just in survivor classes, but in any class.
At first glance, one would think that a big coupe with an American V8 up
front driving the front wheels would be a recipe for understeer, but the
truth is that the Toro is quite well balanced and even agile for a car of
its size. GM engineers did a spectacular job of packaging, which puts the
torque converter behind the engine in the usual place, but the special
TH425 3-speed automatic lives next to the engine, not behind it. The whole
assembly is driven by a chain that GM called "indestructible" and after
years of real-world testing in the field, that has proven to be largely
true. This one also features power drum brakes at all four corners, with
the finned drums themselves used as design elements poking through the
wheels. Those handsome wheels are unique to the front-wheel-drive full-size
GM vehicles, and carry period-perfect narrow white stripe radials.
The black interior is brilliant, with avant-garde design and beautifully
executed detailing that shows you that GM was pulling no punches in the
1960s. The unique drivetrain allows a completely flat passenger compartment
floor, which means six can ride in true comfort. The wide bench seats offer
an inviting combination of fabric and vinyl seating surfaces, with the
front seat giving the illusion of buckets thanks to a wide center armrest.
The gauges flank an extremely cool rotating speedometer, just behind a
steering wheel clearly influenced by Olds' rocket insignia. There's also an
AM/FM radio, a power antenna, and just enough chrome to offset all the
black upholstery. The giant trunk carries a full sized spare and jack
assembly tucked way up in the front, leaving plenty of room for a week's
worth of luggage.
Make no mistake, the first generation Toronados are appreciating quickly.
Of course, the trick is always to find a low-mileage, solid example, and
there just can't be any nicer than this. Add in the highly desirable triple
black color combination and its simply stunning presentation, and you have
a Toro that will win fans wherever it goes. Compare this car to any of its
muscle car cousins and you'll see that it represents a screaming bargain at
the same time. Big horsepower in a trim, 2-door
coupe package has always been a winning recipe, and Oldsmobile fans have
known it for years. Now it's your turn. Call today!
