This 1970 Ford Torino GT is a marvelously restored muscle car with fantastic performance options. If you think back to the origins of a true muscle car, the first muscle cars all shared the same elements an intermediate sized car paired with a big, high horsepower motor. By the time the late sixties rolled around, seemingly every American car maker had its own version of a muscle car and for the Ford Motor Company that car was initially the Fairlane. In 1968, Ford introduced the Fairlane Torino as the top trim level sub-series for the Fairlane and the Torino GT which was considered the sportier version. When 1970 rolled around, the Torino became its own standalone model and was split off from the Fairlane line. In the middle of 1970, when the 1970 Torinos were introduced to the public, they had received a major facelift from the previous year with a new-look front end and grille, along with new Coke-Bottle body lines. Additionally, Ford continued to offer the sportier performance-oriented versions in the Torino GT and the GT Cobra, with the Torino GT SportsRoof Fastbacks selling particularly well. Torino GTs were outfitted with special hood scoops, emblems, and elevated interior trim, and came with a variety of engine options. Under the Shaker Hood on this M-Code 1970 Torino GT is a 351 Cubic Inch Cleveland V8 engine paired with single 4 barrel carburetor that was said to have pushed out 300 horsepower in its day.
