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.

Fast & Furious 4: The Cars and Trucks
FAST & FURIOUS COVERAGE @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Opens Friday, April 3!!!
In the movie business, cars are expendable. They're not respected, nowhere
near cherished, subject to abuse and constantly thrashed. It doesn't matter
if the cars are Ferraris or Ford Crown Vics, the job of any vehicle in a
movie is to tell the story effectively — even if it must be destroyed in
order to do so. And in a movie like Fast & Furious (opening April 3) the
cars do a lot of storytelling. We should know; we went behind the scenes.
In October of 2007, Dennis McCarthy was hired as the picture car
coordinator for Fast & Furious, and after leasing a 60,000-square-foot shop
in Southern California's San Fernando Valley and hiring a staff of
mechanics and fabricators, he got started building the 240 or so cars that
would be needed for the production — to portray about a dozen on-screen
cars tied to a character. After all, duplicates were needed of every car to
ensure the production never had to slow down; to perform specific stunts;
and to be wrecked in the most spectacular way possible.
Using documentation from the production's picture car department and
in-person interviews with McCarthy and his hard-working team of
fabricators, Inside Line has created the most comprehensive guide to this
year's hottest movie cars. Here it is: Inside Line's guide to the cars and
trucks of Fast & Furious.
1969 Ford Fairlane Cobra 428 CJ STK # 923 *SOLD*
One of the ultimate street/strip brawlers is this 1969 Ford Torino Cobra.
Packed between the shock towers is a 428-4v CJ Ram Air V8 backed up by a 4
speed close ratio manual transmission out back is a 3.50 traction-lok
differential. Staggered shocks were standard affair on this Torino Cobra.
This car has few options but the power front disc brakes and in dash tach
are all it needs. This Candyapple red Torino is ready to roll anywhere
someone points it. Included is a Marti Report to document the car. The
motor has less than 2,000 miles on it since it was rebuilt. If you would
like more details give us a call today at toll free (866) 542-8392 or (704)
598-2130. We also welcome visitors to our Charlotte, NC showroom every
