My Car Story with Lou Costabile 1972 Ford Gran Torino Sport 351 Cobra Jet
On "My Car Story" we're in Gilberts IL on 5-4-14.
We're looking at a 1972 Ford Gran Torino Sport 351 Cobra Jet.
The Owner Mr. Anthony Lucarz has had the car for 18 years and has restored
it to factory specifications. The car features an 8 thousand RPM factory
tach, and a real working hood scoop.
This car is clean and in fantastic shape!
1972 Gran Torino Sport 429
My Dad bought this car about 20 years ago. It was set up to drag race at
the track. He bought strictly for racing. It was races for about 5 years
and has sat in a garage for the 15 years. Well today she moved on her own
I had to replace some brake lines, clean out the gas tank and a lil bit of
motor work. Some Exhaust, tires,
wheels license and insurance, it will be ready for some Sunday cruising.
Scenic abandoned 1972 Ford Gran Torinos in HD
In this video, you can see many Ford 1972 GTS (Gran Torino Sport) in sad
positions waiting to be saved. These are forgotten cars rotting away
across America. Even abandoned in the woods or scrapyards, there is a lot
of beauty in these cars. The 1972 Ford Gran Torino was a one year
body-style with its unique front end.
Here is the blog I created for my 72: http://fordtorino72.blogspot.com/
1975 Chevy Stepside Shortbed K10 4X4 C10 pickup Chevrolet GMC
This is a rare 1975 Chevy k10 half ton stepside shortbed Pickup truck.
Chevrolet sure made this classic looking bed for an awaful long time its
basically the same as in the late forties just diff fenders and it really
gives these trucks a nice classic look. This truck is a Blast to drive and
has a VERY powerful 383 stroker motor in it and big ole 35" Mudders. The
truck looks good but the beauty and money spent is in the lift and the
motor and tranny there was over $10,000 dumped into the motor and trans and
lift. Here is some off the info i put in the EBAY ad
This truck runs great. It has the 383 Stroker Motor in it and this
thing is mean and sounds even meaner with the custom dual Exhaust coming out the back behind both tires.
The tranny is rebuilt and has a higher stall torque converter. I believe
the gears are 4 10/4 11 it gets it... Just about everything inside and out
on this truck is custom. These are one of the best motors you can put in
these trucks. The put out a town of power and sound great. It has newer
Holley Valve Covers, New Edelbrock intake and chrome cover and Hooker
Headers. This truck was done right. I was told the motor has about 5000
miles on it and thats what it runs like. There is a leak from what I see is
a valve cover. I show that in the Video... The truck fires right up. It has
a stall converter on the tranni which allows you to reach higher RPM before
shifting. The motor and undercarriage are both just as clean as can be. The
idea the other guy had was to finish the motor and underneath tires and
wheels and lift etc. Then repaint in 3-5 years when it faded out but needed
a car driving 100 miles a day for work ONE WAY! So thats why it wasn't
finished and thats why It's for sale. I can have the truck painted and all
the metal work done for about $2800 to $3500 or just drive it around
EVERYBODY looks at it.
The exterior of this truck looks good but does need some work. It is
painted a nice bright yellow but it wasn't quite prepped right and has misc
issues. Please watch the Video I show them all up close etc. and do a walk
around and a test drive.... It still looks good but up close you can see
some blemishes. The truck has been lifted quite a ways as you can see. I
believe it is a 6" to a 9" lift not for sure...The truck was done right.
Has a very nice set of Polished Aluminum Weld Wheels and 35" Mudder Tires
that have between 70%-80% tread left. It is a really nice combo and look
really good on the truck. Has an aftermarket grill put in, The corrosion
seemed to be mostly in the bottom of door and cab corner and was repaired
but is a older Amature paint job I would say it was a 6 to a 7 on a 1-10
when it was fresh now it looks GREAT but if you really start looking you
will see some things I show them in the Video. Does have the towing package
with a drop hitch for easy towing. The bed has A Plywood bottom Not orig
slats and has a black bed cover going over it. This truck has it all.
The interior is in good condition on this truck but not perfect.
Although better then most older trucks you will see in could use a couple
things. The door panels look good but do show some wear and the bottom
parts are missing and you can see the speakers. There are amp wires in the
back but no amp.. as you see in the video I sell amps etc. and will give
you a smoking deal on a new Amp $65 to $200 depending on what you want etc.
The seats are in good condition. The carpets look like they were redone at
some point because they are in great shape. The gauges have all been
changed out and Digital Gauges put in which I think looks cool and gives
more of a modern look. NOT ONLY THAT there are switches on the dash that
will give you the 1/4 mile readout and a whole host of other info 0 to 60
time,,, etc. Aftermarket Sony CD Player with remote has been installed.

1972 Chevelle Concours Station Wagon - Nice Stationwagon Not For Sale
OK- This one belonged to my buddy Gene. He bought it to tow his restored
1957 boat. The wagon is a REALLY NICE CAR. Has Ice Cold A/C converted to
134a. Optional Roof Rack and rear window air deflector, the Big Block Hood
looks COOL. Corvette 15X8 rally wheels and the SS grill and paint give it a
nice look. The car was built quite well. They added a second gas tank in
the right spare tire well opposite the stock left tank. Spare tire is now
under the rear floor, so the rear space under floor is storage and spare
tire compartment, no third seat option. Rear window is electric and the
tailgate has the 2-way opening feature.
