History The Oldsmobile Toronado is a personal luxury car produced by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors from 1966 to 1992. Designed to transcend Ford Thunderbird and GMs own Buick Riviera, with its all new transaxle version of GMs Turbo-Hydramatic transmission. The Toronado is historically significant as the first U.S.-produced front-wheel drive automobile since the demise of the Cord in 1937. Why This Car Is Special As debuted, the innovative Toronado featured such GM developments as the: Heavy-duty Turbo-Hydramatic 425 three-speed automatic transmission, Rochester Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, Spherical shaped exhaust-manifold flange gaskets, which provided freedom of movement in the exhaust system and prevented leaks, Draft-Free ventilation system, which reduced wind noise considerably by eliminating conventional front-door vent windows, and Firestone also designed an 8.85 x 15 tire especially for the Toronado called the TFD (Toronado-Front-Drive) tire. The great looking Blue 1967 Olds Toronado we have here at Skyway Classics is an example of that break-away designed car and is almost all original. Mechanical Specs To power the car, Oldsmobile engineers selected a conventional, although performance-boosted, Olds 425 cu in Super Rocket V8 rated at 385 hp and 475 ft lb of torque. It provided an increase of 10 hp over the Starfire 425, and an increase of 20 hp over the standard 425 engine in the Ninety-Eight. The Toronados intake manifold was unique and was depressed down to allow for engine hood clearance. The Hy-Vo chain drive was developed by GMs Hydra-Matic Division and Morse Chain Division of Borg-Warner. The chains were made from a very strong hardened steel and required no tensioners or idler pulleys because they were pre-stretched on a special machine at the factory. The 1967 addition of vented front disc brakes as an option provided substantial improvement and a slightly softer ride. Interior The interior has a highly stylized steering wheel with a double-delta shaped horn ring which framed the view of an unusual slot-machine speedometer, which consisted of a stationary horizontal needle and a vertically rotating black drum on which the numerals were printed in white. The numerals descended behind the needle as the vehicle gained speed. All other gauges, indicators and controls are grouped within easy reach of the driver. The plush black interior comes with all the power features you would expect and is really comfortable and inviting. Exterior As with many coupes, the Toronado featured elongated doors to allow easier access for passengers entering the rear seats. Door-latch handles were even duplicated at the rear of each door enabling passengers to open the doors without having to reach over or around the front seat Conclusion If you want a car that gained great publicity for the division by winning several leading automotive awards, such as Motor Trends Car of the Year Award and Car Lifes Award for Engineering Excellence, the 1967 Olds Toronado we have at Skyway Classis is the one for you.

It sounds great too through the factory style dual exhaust system with dual chrome tips. The engine is backed by a smooth-shifting three-speed "THM-425" Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission.The car is straight and sound with a condition that we would characterize as a well-maintained, largely original, high-level driver. It is reported that the car came from two prior owners in the dry Montana/Idaho high mountain desert area which has likely helped in preserving the original materials. The Toronado personal luxury coupe was a breakthrough design from Oldsmobile when it was introduced in 1966 as the first front-wheel drive American car since the Gordon Beuhrig designed Cord of 1936-37. One is immediately impressed by the broad, flat floors in the passenger compartment made possible by the drivetrain being entirely over the front wheels. This 1967 Toronado is an example of Americas best in both design and engineering.
