1976 Ford Elite Gran Torino

Car History

We have a 1976 1976 Ford Elite Grand Torino here at Adventure Classics that is simply stunning.

This is a true car of distinction. The 1976 Ford Gran Torino Elite was introduced as a personal luxury coupe with its own character and this car is an original survivor that was in a personal collection of a Ford Dealer for 30 years with only 59,600 actual miles on the odometer, this is a very special Gran Torino.

Engine & Drivetrain

Ford's legendary 400 cubic-inch V8 engine provides plenty of power for the Car. It looks just as it did when it left the factory with its blue painted engine block heads, intake, and factory ram air cleaner assembly with the 400-2V factory decals, power steering, power brake, air conditioning, and all sitting in the correct original painted and detailed engine compartment.

The V8 power means effortless torque at any speed and the kind of pulling power that defined luxury in the '70s. It floats down the road like a good 70s machine with a C4 three-speed automatic transmission as the chassis is very solid and all original.

It rides on stock steel wheels with wire hub caps and they are wrapped in white sidewall radials to complete the original look.


Inside, everything is original or in very good condition, with comfortable white bench seats with twin arm rests and both having headrests, the matching plush rear seat and door panels, the dash and controls that wrap around the driver, including the original AM/FM stereo, cruise control, and factory air conditioning, dual-spoke steering, sporty Factory five-dial round gauge panel, tan carpet and floor mats.

Out back, the spacious trunk has plenty of room for luggage and houses a full-size spare, mat, and original jack set, and the paperwork that goes with this car includes the Owners Manual and Dealer Brochure.


By 1976, the Starsky and Hutch Gran Torino was at the height of its popularity. But ours has a much more luxurious presentation.

The styling cues include the single headlight fascia unique to the Elite model that was introduced a few years before that gives the coupe an instant distinction, the luxury details in the yellow paint job that is all factory-original, great matching trim line rub strips, nice chrome bumpers front and rear, twin body painted mirrors, hood emblem, and a vinyl roof.


The 1976 Ford Elite Grand Torino we have here at Adventure Classics is almost completely original with the factory paint job, terrific coordinating color combo, big V8 power, and all the luxury you want.

This classic premium coupe has a such a high degree of originality that you know it has been treated with respect from day one so you will know what premium vintage luxury is all about.
