This 1970 Ford Torino GT has its numbers-matching 429 V8 under the hood. So it makes this one an ultra-desirable muscle machine from a short run of intimidating coupes direct from Ford.
The 1970 Torino kicked off a very short two-year generation that gave us one of the coolest-looking blue ovals ever to hit the streets. The front end was more angular and meaner than a Chevelle, and the rear has a long fastback profile. They recessed the rear window and trunk so that air could flow to the well-integrated spoiler. While this was done to make a good NASCAR contender, it just looked absolutely cool on the street version. And speaking of speedy style, the dark hood stripe w/wide hood scoop and full-length Laser stripes really give this GT car that added amount of performance distinction. And the blackout rear panel complete this high contrast look against the bright yellow paint. This whole package strikes the right balance of a vibrant look that's always ready to hit the streets. The form-fitting chrome bumpers, correct badging, ribbed rockers, and Mag 500 wheels all complete a very stock look to a very muscular coupe.
Inside is more of that great vintage appearance. The saddle tan has a great 1970s vibe, right down to the textured inserts in the seats. It's a well-preserved package everywhere you look - from the smooth door panels to the correct trunk mat. Ford knew how to build a big car that offered plenty of space, and at the same time, still kept the driver in mind. That's why the dash is really focused on you. The dual spoke steering wheel gives a clear view to the all the essentials that's right in front of the driver. This is everything from the ultra-wide speedometer to the heat/defrost control panel. This whole presentation feels correct, right down to the Philco AM radio that's still cranking out the tunes.
Big coupes have big engine bays, and that means plenty of room for big block power. So that big block air grabber isn't lying, and you're looking at a Ford with a 429 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor on top. This is how this car was build from day one, and this is still the numbers-matching motor under the hood! Everything from the correct decals in the engine bay to the correct red oxide paint underneath tell you this is a well-kept car. And the way the big V8 fires up and runs really reaffirms the quality care. It's also easy to enjoy this coupe on the road thanks to easy driving features like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and wide BF Goodrich T/As.
Complete with owner's manual, this Torino GT is the kind of 429 classic hardtop you've been looking for, so don't let it slip away, call today!
