The Oldsmobile Toronado has the distinction of being the first mass
produced US front wheel drive car with an all new transaxle and
engine in a single package dubbed the UPP, or Universal Power
Package. Tough, durable and compact, this design was well used and
even found itself powering motorhomes and needing no upgrades spoke
of its durability. The Toronado soldiered on for many more
generations as the brands top model, with luxury and features than
nearly competed with Cadillacs.

Following solid sales and critical success for the Buick Riviera, General Motors came out with a groundbreaking design for its next “personal-luxury” car.
I worked at Clark Oldsmobile in West Palm Beach, Florida, right after graduating high school in 1978. This (formerly) beautiful but still rare and unusual Oldsmobile Toronado came in for service and oil changes.
For the 1966 model year, Oldsmobile rolled out a relatively revolutionary car — a full-size car pulled around by its front wheels rather than pushed around by those at the rear.
