Starsky & Hutch 1975 Ford Gran Torino
This vehicle started life as a light blue, 1975 Ford Gran Torino with a
dark blue interior, bench seat, column shift, a dark blue vinyl top and
those adorable& useless opera windows.
There are still some things on the interior that I hope to replace, and
eventually I want to pull the motor, rebuild it, and then paint and detail
the engine compartment to like-new quality.
My big dream though, is to someday convert it to rack-and-pinion steering
for that late-model feel. I've heard it's been done on older Torino's but
I'm not sure if it's possible to do on a '75. If anyone can point me to
products or performance shops that might be able to handle such a job,
please let me know!
But the best thing about this car isn't driving it (although that IS fun!).
The biggest kick is the joy you bring to people's faces when they see the
car. I remember one 7-year-old boy in particular who was in a car driving
past me. His face lit up like he'd seen the bestest, coolest thing in the
whole wide world! That look on his face and the obvious thrill he got from
seeing it is what I love most about this car. Seeing that expression on
his face was awesome! :-)
The car has 15" on the rear and 14" on the front.
You can still get them at AKH Wheels. If you want,
I can get you the tire sizes too, just let me know.
The stripe was hand laid using a bunch of photos from
the TV show and movie. It's the most important
element on the car so it had to be perfect! And you're
right, alot of people get it wrong! It needs that
graceful swoop to the body line, not a sharp angled turn.
The paints are as follows: The red is PPG "Viper Red",
the white is Ford "Performance White" and the black
is just PPG 9700 Ford "Black". All paints are base
with clear overcoat. Many people use Wimbledon White
for the stripe but it isn't as bright as Performance White.
It looks okay with Ford 2B Red but with a bright red like Viper,
Performance White is the only color to use.
This car is BRIGHT!
Hope this helps answer any questions.
Thanks for visiting!
Ford Gran Torino 1972 Part 1/2 (Muscle Car HD)
Make sure to watch part 2.
Here is the blog I created for my 72: http://fordtorino72.blogspot.com
Here is my facebook Torino group:
This one is for all the Gran Torino owners and admirers out there. The
slideshow is all about the 72 Sport FastBack model which is in my opinion,
one of the most good looking muscle car around. I love the aggressive
nose, the large muscular hips and the fastback with its rear window being
almost horizontal. This car has been starring in the latest Clint Eastwood
movie and the last Fast & Furious 4. Enjoy the ride, make sure you watch
in HD and spread the 2 words...Gran Torino. One last thing, If any Torino
owners or photographers in this video wants their pictures to be credited
in the description, it will be my pleasure.
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.

Fast & Furious 4: Ford Gran Torino
MORE FAST & FURIOUS @ INSIDELINE.COM:
What Clint Eastwood did for the 1972 Gran Torino in Gran Torino, Fast &
Furious will try to undo. Because in this movie, the very nastiest bad guy
— you know, the chief henchman who does the dirtiest deeds and dies just
before the big boss bad guy gets his — drives a '72 Gran Torino
The inspiration for the Gran Torino in Fast & Furious comes from a similar
Torino built for Dan Widmann at Steve Strope's Pure Vision Design — the
same shop from which emerged the Hammer Road Runner that's also featured in
the film. Strope brought Widmann's Torino to a casting session and a star
— well, a co-star — was born.
The one significant visual change between Widmann's Torino and the replicas
built for the film is that Widmann's car is blue, and the bad guy Torinos
were painted green. It seems that blue was already assigned as super-dreamy
Paul Walker's color in Fast & Furious, so the bad attitude character "Fenix
Rise" (played by Laz Alonzo) would have to wear green.
Little matter, however, as the Gran Torino looks dang good in green.
To portray Fenix's FoMoCo, the picture car department acquired six '72
Torino Sportsroof models and one '73. As with the Charger, some of the
stunt cars were fit with Chevy crate V8s and automatic transmissions, but
at least one of the cars was originally equipped with a 429 and four-speed
manual transmission. Five of the cars were either destroyed during
production or ripped apart for parts.
Among the Torinos destroyed was that 429 four-speed car. Sometimes evil
must be done in order to portray evil.
