The 1970 Ford Torino GT was a long and mean-looking machine, so this one was upgraded to really emphasize the best parts. That's why you have slick paint, an upgraded five-speed, and the mighty 429 V8 powering this coupe.
Ford may have had the Torino as an intermediate car, but the 1970 redesign was made to own the road with its size. The extra-long hood, pillarless hardtop profile, and fastback-style rear gives this an absolutely intimidating presence. Heck, the sharply pointed front end looks like it wants to spear a Chevelle as it muscles up from behind! The whole package is done nicely for maximum aggression. Up front, the bright chrome bumper shines to make the blackout grille look even darker by comparison. And the rear has one of the best integrated rear spoilers of the era. It's a sporty look that really gets emphasized, because the body panels have such an excellent presentation. Highlighting this further is the paint. The blue is the product of an investment in a modern clearcoat application and a professional had applying it. So the sunshine loves to really show off how great this coupe looks. And there are some additional thoughtful upgrades that go with this subtly more modern style. For example, the racing-style blackout hood with fresh air scoops is actually done in a graphite gray for a very contemporary look. And the wheels have the classic Halibrand style, but they are modern 17-inch alloys that can fit modern performance rubber.
The interior mixes plenty of vintage style with the right upgrades. It starts with two rows of wide classic bench seats. This has a nice headliner, good, carpeting, a clean dash, and an overall feeling of quality that makes it easy to enjoy. It feels quite vintage everywhere from the dual spoke steering wheel to the Philco AM radio that's still on display. But then you spot upgraded items like the column-mounted SunPro tach and the auxiliary gauges below the dash. And the shift pattern for the Hurst shifter certainly isn't factory.
When you lift the hood, your attention immediately is drawn to the air topper announces the 429 cubic-inch V8. This is the kind of displacement that makes most of us weak in the knees. This was a more recent upgrade to this important motor, and so they made sure it looks quite clean. It fires up nicely as this big block inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor. It exhales with a sweet power sound out of the newer stainless dual exhaust with Flowmasters. In fact, while you're checking out those pipes in the undercarriage photos, don't forget to spot newer pieces on the front, like fresh suspension components and the gas tank. It's why this Torino feels solid on the road. You also have power steering, power brakes with front discs, and modern performance tires. And this well-done power and control package is only further enhanced by the upgrade to a Tremec TKO600 five-speed manual transmission.
