Follow me on Facebook for continuous updates, exclusive content, FAQs and
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we take an up close and personal, in depth look
at the super cool, Ford Torino King Cobra Prototype.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth educational videos of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

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!
