For Sale: 1974 Oldsmobile Toronado in Mooresville, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

HIGHLIGHTS: Documented two-owner! Beautiful restoration! Champagne over red cloth interior! Front-wheel drive classic creampuff! Personal luxury cruiser! This IS your father's Oldsmobile!

BODY OVERVIEW: Sold new here in NC in 1974, the original owner kept this car until 2019 when Shelton Classics & Performance sold it to the current owner. As one would expect of a car like this with a long-term, loving owner, the body is in amazing condition! The body is as straight as can be, and all hard to find Toronado specific badging and parts are in place and in good condition. The underside is just as clean as the top, with a quality undercoating job and recent exhaust system.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The exterior has received a high-quality repaint in the original color. Nothing other than OEM+ quality would be satisfactory for this vehicle! This car is a classic show stopper, and you're sure to turn heads anywhere you go! The maroon vinyl top is a wonderful contrast with the silver paint, and really serves to accent the classy and curvaceous lines of this vehicle.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is nearly all original and in amazing condition for this well-maintained car. All plastic, vinyl, and cloth is in fantastic condition showing extremely minimal wear, age, and sun damage. One look at the condition of the interior is proof of pride of ownership! The classic 1970s red interior is the ideal choice for this Toronado, an icon of the "Malaise" era. One interesting option (or perhaps the lack thereof) you may have noticed is crank windows. We've never seen another one without power windows! What a peach!

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: The original owner was a true "car guy" and Oldsmobile enthusiast, so it is no surprise that this Toronado has seen nothing but maintenance and care over the years including major maintenance when necessary to keep it up to snuff for shows. An Oldsmobile Club of America member, the original owner took care of this car as a parent would of a child. This car took both First Place and Best of Class at the 2016 Olds Nationals in Kingsport, TN. Under the hood is the original 455 cubic inch V8 engine. It has been rebuilt and repainted while in the care of the original owner to keep up the immaculate look of the vehicle, and it purrs like only an Oldsmobile could. All of the original engine bay stickers appear to be in place, as well as an original GM Frigidaire A/C compressor. All of the front wheel drive components are in place and in excellent, serviceable condition. This car drives phenomenally! If you're looking for a well-maintained, documented two-owner, show winning Toronado, it is unlikely you will find a better example on the market!

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: This is a one-of-a-kind time capsule that has been painstakingly maintained and has the trophies to prove it. The trophies this car has earned stayed with the original owner's family, and are not included in the sale.

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: This is a hard one to hate on!

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The A/C is not currently operational, and the low beam headlight bulbs need to be replaced. Please refer to the Does It Work? list below for full details.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone looking for a beautifully preserved example of an uncommon car!
