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.

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.
