1970 Ford Torino GT

The Ford Torino was selected as Motor Trend ‘Car of the Year’ in 1970. Despite this accolade, restored Torinos are rarely seen today, often taking a back seat to the more-abundant muscle cars of the era. By all accounts, folks are over-looking a gem. This ’70 Torino GT sportsroof has received a careful restoration back to virtually original condition. (A MartiAutoWorks build report is included with the car.)

The Bright Yellow (D code) respray is in excellent condition and is accented with original GT body side stripping, ‘honeycomb’ taillights and 15” Magnum GT chrome-spoke wheels w/Goodyear Eagle GT radials. The black Turin Knit/Vinyl interior is also in excellent condition. Features include optional bucket seats, full console, Hurst shifter, factory ‘ribbon’ tachometer, tinted windows and AM/FM radio. Horsepower is furnished by a 351ci/4V (M code)

Cleveland that resides in a nicely detailed engine compartment. It is fitted with the non-functional ‘Cobra Jet’ style hood scoop and backed by a factory 4-speed close-ratio manual transmission. Torque is delivered to a Traction-Lok 9” differential w/3.50:1 gears (S code). We do not have the detailed history of the drivetrain, but everything appears to be virtually original. The chassis is equipped with manual steering and manual drum brakes w/dual master. Suspension is front coil springs w/sway bar and rear 4-leaf springs w/traction bars. This Torino GT is a rare muscle car that belongs in your Blue Oval garage. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
