The first front-wheel drive production vehicle from GM and the first such American automobile produced since the Cord 810/812 of the mid-1930s, the Toronado was named Motor Trend magazines Car of the Year for 1966. The Toronado offered innovative drivetrain packaging with its Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission mounted under one cylinder bank of the 425 cubic-inch V-8 engine, and chain-type drivetrain. Despite weighing nearly 5,000 pounds, the Toronados balance was near-perfect, and with 375 bhp on tap for 1966 and 10 more in 1967, this ideal Grand Touring machine could easily top 130.

Blade-style front fenders, pop-up headlamps, and a Kamm-type rear treatment are among the sleek Toronados unforgettable visual cues. A full-size spare wheel/tire, roadside jack, and lug wrench are included, along with the original books/manuals, color selection book, and dealer-issued Protect-O-Plate, plus copies of previous titles and the last registration document.
