This one is for all the Torino lovers out there. Enjoy this sideshow of wonderful cars. Ford Torino and Gran Torino from 1968 1969 1970 1971 1972 1973. Mostly fastbacks. If any Torino owners or photographers wants their their pictures to be credited in the description, it will be my pleasure.
Btw, here is the blog I created for my 72: http://fordtorino72.blogspot.com/
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.

I thought you'd like a look at this 1969 Ford Cobra. This particular car is
equipped with a balance and blueprinted 428 Super Cobra Jet. It also has
the drag pack with a four-speed tranny and 4.30 rear gears. It's looking
real tough in black on black and resembles Ford's Nascars from the time. I
hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
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!
1969 Torino GT Fastback 1st time at dragstrip
This is my freind's car. He's been working on it for 9 years, I rode in it
a lot during high school as it was being built. This is the first time he
ever took it to the track. It is a 1969 Ford Torino GT Fastback. It has a
Windsor based 408ci V8, Eagle balanced all forged rotating assembly, AFR185
heads, Comp XE282HR cam, Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake, Single 750VS Demon,
Headman 1-5/8 headers with 3" dual Exhaust. Transmission is a Tremec TKO 500,
rearend is a ford 9" with 3.89's and a detroit true-track. This run was
the first ever at 12.70@113. It went on to 12.40@110. The traction was
better at the track than on the street so the times would get better with
