The big V8, distinct style, and the value price all come together on this 1967 Oldsmobile Toronado to deliver a classic coupe that's just ready for you to personalize.
We loved the first-gen Toronado because the sleek hidden headlight style made it look like a spaceship had landed on the highway. But there was also a ton of appeal from getting the best style of the era right with a long hood, fastback rear, and plenty of flare in the fenders. This example is quite complete - right down to the form-hugging bumpers and factory hubcaps. There's plenty of room for improvement, but the value price should leave room in your budget so that you can choose the personal style you want.
The interior has a distinct style with the custom teal cloth inserts in the seats. They add comfort and the black button-top presentation makes it quite stylish. There's even newer carpeting to make this inviting. Just like the exterior, there is room for improvement. What you can appreciate the most with this is that the original pieces are still in place. The controls for pieces like air conditioning, headlights, AM radio, wipers, horn, turn signals, and courtesy lights are in place. So you can choose if you want to service the factory units or make upgrades. With the tilt steering column, distinct barrel-style speedometer, and individual comfort of a front bucket seat, this one has the fundamentals for a fun cruiser from day one. You even have provisions for full power windows that make it easy to drive around with the cool pillarless hardtop profile any time you want.
The heart of the appeal in this Toronado is that the correct-style 425 cubic-inch V8 is still under the hood. It's a big motor topped with a four-barrel carburetor. It's a strong starter, and it should remain a solid runner with some adjusting. The three-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly, and don't forget that the Toronado is uniquely front-wheel drive for good traction. Plus, power steering, power brakes, and modern Hankook tires are there for an easy cruiser feeling.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual. Many of us get excited about a car with a ton of potential (remember when Jay Leno made a twin-engine version of a Toronado?) This is the kind of car that can be fun for today and keep you dreaming about tomorrow. Call now!
