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 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.

1/8th mile 7.55 vs 7.60 Dial. I broke-out with a 7.53. Good Race The Olds sounded insane with one of those crazy cams that idles at 1800 rpm too good for me to lift after I reeled him in.





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: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=182991868882 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.

Fast & Furious 4: Ford Gran Torino | Edmunds.com
Check out the 10 Best Fast & Furious Cars http://vid.io/xqwj MORE FAST & FURIOUS @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Features/articleId=144127 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.
