About Ford Torinos
A vintage ride from the heyday of Detroit engineering, the Ford Torino is an icon on the silver screen and the road, with everyone from Eastwood to Lebowski having taken the wheel. Initially released as a Fairline subseries, the Torino eventually took over Ford's mid-size production. Although an intermediate class car, there are some Ford Torinos that qualify as muscle cars thanks to their Cobra Jet engines and enhanced performance. These powerful Torinos, in fact, were fast enough to serve as the base for Ford's NASCAR entrants in the 1970s. Today, fans of classic Ford engineering can still find a wide variety of Torinos out there. There is the revamped styling of the third generation to consider, as with a 1972 Ford Gran Torino or a two-door hardtop from the first run in the 1960s. Those in search of a Torino can find an array of options on eBay, along with Ford Torino parts for running repairs and refurbishments.
