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.

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.
It has a cream twin bucket seat interior with matching door panels
and rear matching seat, Tan carpet and floor mats, Factory dash and

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
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.
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.
