Gateway Classic Cars a of Milwaukee is excited to present this
luxurious 1972 Oldsmobile Toronado. Recognizable for its transaxle
version of General Motors Turbo-Hydramatic transmission. Making the
Toronado Americas first mass- produced front-wheel drive automobile
along with her sisters the Cadillac Eldorado and Buick Riviera.
Spanning a phenomenal production run from 1966-1992 over four
generations. Manufactured as two-door personal luxury vehicle, the
Oldsmobile Toronado was so well received it went on to become Motor
Trends car of the year in 1966. The Toronado was one of the first
modern front-wheel cars to have an automatic transmission which
allowed the engine to sit over the front wheels, giving the car a
notable 54/46 percent front/ rear weight distribution. Most noted
was the complete flat floor adding even more space to what already
one of the roomiest interiors available. Our 1972 second generation
Oldsmobile Toronado is a great survivor of what has become a staple
in the automotive world "front wheel drive". Basically, an all
original car (repainted decklid) both inside and out. The first-
generation subframe model was replaced by a body-on frame platform,
transitioning into a larger, heavily restyled, traditional looking
luxury car. Front disk brakes became standard equipment in 1971.
Under the hood is a 455 cubic inch Rocket V-8 attached to a 3-speed
TH-425 automatic transmission. Painted in an elegant white with
black cloth interior complimented by a matching white vinyl top.
Options include air conditioning, power steering, power brakes,
power windows, and an aftermarket Sony AM/ FM cassette radio. This
1972 Oldsmobile Toronado is an exceptionally clean example of a
true American icon. This 1972 Oldsmobile Toronado is available at
our Milwaukee Showroom at Gateway Classic Cars and can be seen at
www.GatewayClassicCars.com which includes 100+ HD photos and HD
video. To see the car in person, it can be seen at our Milwaukee
