Classic Car Overview

The Oldsmobile Toronado was sold from 1966 through 1992. It was built as a low-priced luxury car with excellent performance and a revolutionary design. The name Toronado has no meaning; it was made up for a 1963 Chevrolet show car. The American automobile manufacturer Cord had created a vehicle in the mid-1930s that used front-wheel drive. Since that time most American automobiles used rear-wheel drive. The Toronado, a full-sized American car using front wheel drive, is credited with revolutionizing and stimulating the industry to use the front-wheel design. For the American Automotive Community, it was a risky concept. The front-wheel design was viewed as a reason why Cord had gone bankrupt. Many were skeptical of having the front of the vehicle handle most of the weight, be responsible for steering and braking, and drive the car.We offer you a revolutionary car with features many cars did not even dare put into effect until years later. This example, though not perfect, is rarely seen on the roads today, even though it was a very popular car in the mid 1970s. Breathe it in, and have a read (think excited!)ExteriorWith looks very similar to a Lincoln, and power similar to a muscle car, the Toronado is a fine mixture of both. With its V bumper below the matching V hood and simple horizontal built in grille (think Cord). Dual headlights in rectangular format flank the long hood, which makes its way back to the slightly curved around windscreen. Plenty of chrome trim resides here bordering the windscreen, and Landau Padded Vinyl top. Sides include long straight steel panels with good alignment, and nice chrome trim, circumnavigating the wheel wells, and rockers. Bringing up the rear is a notched paneled trunk, where the CHMSL lights reside, and thin vertical taillights (think Cadillac). All steel panels, this car is noted as not perfect, but this car can be shown or driven, or both, as its a driver, and frowns upon garage and trailer queens (think Toronado).InteriorPower Plush seats in good condition, gauges and lights working as the should. The drivers door shows an area of vinyl on the armrest that is showing age and is cracked. The dash and steering wheel are original and utilize the mid 70s squared off design principle. Gauges are working as they should. All lights are properly working, Windshield Wipers are working, Horn is working, Heat/Defrost is working, AC does not blow cold. DrivetrainAn original unrestored, but well maintained 455ci V8 topped by a single 4-barrel carburetor and attached to an automatic transmission. Both run very smoothly.UndercarriageA thorough look underneath, the car is solid with 46,xxx miles. Undercarriage is original and in good condition with no issues. This car is in good structurally sound condition. You will see minor surface rust to be expected from a nearly 50 year old vehicle. Power disc brakes upfront, and power drum brakes in the rear.Combining luxury, mid 1970s design, and some muscle, this car could be all 3 cars if you want. In fair+ to good condition, it is ready for cross country drive.VIN Decode3Z57W5M7129393-OldsmobileZ-Toronado Brougham57-2 Door Hardtop CoupeW-455 V85-1975M-Lansing, MI Assy Plant712939-Sequential Unit Numberotions power windows power seatspower brakes powere steeringpower locks remote drivers mirrorremote passenger side mirriorsunvisors passenger side vanity mirror (lighted) Visit JKs Galleria Of Vintage, Classic and Pristine Cars for your next vehicle.
