Rare, interesting, and quite striking, this 1969 Ford Torino GT
convertible is that perfect cool classic cruiser. After all, a 390
V8 under the hood and an A/C interior make this sharp-looking
drop-top ready to hit the road.
The '69 Torino seemed to really live up to its Italian name. It was
arguably one of Ford's most attractive designs of the 1960s because
it offered an elegant simplicity that had a hint of European
influence. And the paint highlights this idea perfectly. The light
blue is subtle, yet sophisticated. And it makes for a good
background for the stylish black C-channel stripe. And the sunken
front end with the bumper hugging the form is a timelessly
attractive design. But you'll also notice something more here. The
unique grille with a red accent stripe kicks off the sporty GT
package. Plus, the Mag 500 wheels, hood pins, and hood scoop all
let everyone know there is aggression within its elegance.
The beige convertible top looks great against the sky blue paint.
And with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal an equally
attractive light beige interior. While these were
intermediate-sized in 1969, today that means plenty of space to
share with family and friends. And they will all happily go for a
ride because this is a well-presented total package. You have
good-looking upholstery, a smooth dash, a glass back window, and
newer plush carpeting. There are even upgrades like a Kenwood AM/FM
stereo w/cassette and air conditioning (which will need servicing
to work) to keep everyone happy. And as a true GT, this remains a
driver's car - especially with upgrades like the sports steering
wheel with matching leather grip and a tilt steering column.
Under the hood, the big 390 cubic-inch V8 is the correct
displacement for this GT. And you can tell there have been the
right investments in perseveration and maintenance to keep the
whole engine bay looking sharp. The mighty motor inhales deeply
with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a
sweet sound out of an H-pipe exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. Add
in a C6 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power
brakes, front discs, and this really proves it's a strong-running
This is a powerful classic of distinction. In fact, they produced
less than 2,600 Torino GT convertibles in 1969. So you have an
opportunity at rarity and beauty in a wind-in-your-hair total
package. Call today!!!
