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 power!!
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.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #75: 1970 Ford Torino Cobra 429 SCJ
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - The Ford Torino has always been an
aggressively styled Muscle Car, but for 1970, it received a whole new look!
This 1970 Torino Cobra is powered by the 429 Super Cobra Jet V8 engine
making 375 HP and enough torque to fry the tires at will. It is
finished in Vermillion, which provides a stark contrast against the satin
black hood, shaker scoop, and tail panel accents to let everyone know this
Cobra is not messing around. From the Brothers Collection.

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.

Ford Gran Torino 1972 Part 2/2 (Muscle Car HD)
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.

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 Sportsroof.
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.
