Vehicle Description

1968 Ford Torino GT

Why This Vehicle is Special

The Ford Torino is an automobile that was produced by Ford for the North American market between 1968 and 1976. It was a competitor in the intermediate market segment.

The car was named after the city of Turin (Torino, in Italian), considered "the Italian Detroit". The Torino was initially an upscale variation of the intermediate sized Ford Fairlane.

Straight from the high-banked ovals of NASCAR, the restored 1968 Ford Torino GT we have here at Skyway Classics was the Ford fastback aero champ of the late-60s.

We believe it to have the original F-Code 302 cubic inch V8, an awesome color combination, and a very family-friendly interior, this should be your next muscle car.

Mechanical

Our Torino has a Ford 302cubic inch V8 engine with everything looking as it did as a muscle car back then from the added aluminum intake to the factory looking belts and hoses, Power steering, Power brakes, A/C, Dual exhaust, Chrome valve covers, Performance Ignition and spark plug wires, and the Chrome Open element air cleaner.

This is the car's original, numbers-matching F-code engine and it has been recently freshened with bright Ford Blue paint and idles smoothly and pulls with a lot of torque through the Toploader 4-speed manual transmission.

The chassis is detailed and quite clean and shows lots of new components and rides on custom aftermarket Shelby style grey/polished mag wheels and black side wall tires to give it that NASCAR style and stance.

Interior

It has a cream twin bucket seat interior with matching door panels and rear matching seat, Tan carpet and floor mats, Factory dash and gauges, Manual shifter in the console,

Cream steering wheel, Ford Radio making this car feel as sporty inside as it looks outside.
The dash has a racy look with four round pods for the gauges with the Torino GT upscale steering wheel which has a wood grain insert.

Auxiliary gauges are stashed under the dash and even the original AM radio is still in the dash. The trunk space is impressive under that fastback roof line and includes a correct mat, full-sized spare, and jack assembly.

Exterior

The Torino GT fastback body style looks seriously fast and it has a great coating of Highland Green paint with gold striping flowing over the vintage NASCAR look that simply screams performance.

The front end was more angular and meaner than a Chevelle, and the rear has a long fastback profile. They recessed the rear window and trunk so that air could flow over the car at speed.

The Torino GT was pretty much top-of-the-line so there's plenty of chrome like the front and rear bumpers, side molding, and trim. Most importantly is that the glass remains in good original condition, particularly the giant rear window, which is almost impossible to replace.

The restored 1968 Ford Torino GT we have here at Skyway Classics, is a restored model with a NASCAR heritage that will do you proud on the streets or at the shows today.
