The big V8, distinct style, and the value price all come together
on this 1967 Oldsmobile Toronado to deliver a classic coupe that's
just ready for you to personalize.
We loved the first-gen Toronado because the sleek hidden headlight
style made it look like a spaceship had landed on the highway. But
there was also a ton of appeal from getting the best style of the
era right with a long hood, fastback rear, and plenty of flare in
the fenders. This example is quite complete - right down to the
form-hugging bumpers and factory hubcaps. There's plenty of room
for improvement, but the value price should leave room in your
budget so that you can choose the personal style you want.
The interior has a distinct style with the custom teal cloth
inserts in the seats. They add comfort and the black button-top
presentation makes it quite stylish. There's even newer carpeting
to make this inviting. Just like the exterior, there is room for
improvement. What you can appreciate the most with this is that the
original pieces are still in place. The controls for pieces like
air conditioning, headlights, AM radio, wipers, horn, turn signals,
and courtesy lights are in place. So you can choose if you want to
service the factory units or make upgrades. With the tilt steering
column, distinct barrel-style speedometer, and individual comfort
of a front bucket seat, this one has the fundamentals for a fun
cruiser from day one. You even have provisions for full power
windows that make it easy to drive around with the cool pillarless
hardtop profile any time you want.
The heart of the appeal in this Toronado is that the correct-style
425 cubic-inch V8 is still under the hood. It's a big motor topped
with a four-barrel carburetor. It's a strong starter, and it should
remain a solid runner with some adjusting. The three-speed
automatic transmission shifts smoothly, and don't forget that the
Toronado is uniquely front-wheel drive for good traction. Plus,
power steering, power brakes, and modern Hankook tires are there
for an easy cruiser feeling.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual. Many of us get
excited about a car with a ton of potential (remember when Jay Leno
made a twin-engine version of a Toronado?) This is the kind of car
that can be fun for today and keep you dreaming about tomorrow.
