Ford Torino? Should I buy?
I am interested in buying a Ford Torino. Does anyone have anything to say about them good or bad and what was the best year? I would love to hear about what other's think. I'm basically leaning towards a 70-72 2 door hardtop.

70-71 Torinos are going up in price. 72 up are not quite there yet. The 70-71 cars are Chevelle-like in size. Even with a 302 they still get up and go pretty good. There are different rooflines available also. The 2 door hardtop, the Cobra sportsroof and of course the convertible. The latter is a GT only vehicle and they only made 3939 in 1970 and less in 71. Whatever you find, have fun!

I had a 4-speed '70 429 CJ torino back in the day, I got it after I wrecked my '70 429 thunderjet automatic torino. I wish I had kept both cars. My input is don't settle for anything that doesn't have a 429 or 460 and isn't a '70 or '71 with the "sports roof" (what I call a fast back).

If you like the Torinos, google the 70-1/2 Falcon, it will blow your mind. Thought I knew quite a bit about classics until I saw one for sale (70-1/2 Falcon).

The CJ cars are holding there value and since the Clint Eastwood Movie I have seen numbers higher on Torino's in General.
