For Sale: 1967 Oldsmobile Toronado in Macedonia, Ohio

Vehicle Description

Older body-on restoration still in great shape. Desirable Deluxe model in great colors. Powerful and smooth 425 cubic inch V8 runs great. Loaded with options. Oldsmobile's awesome gentleman's express is affordable... for now.The first-generation Toronados are currently on our 'buy and hold' list simply because they offer performance, styling, and history for not a lot of cash. That's changing, so if you've missed the boat on other cars as the market was rising, it's time to make a move on the Toro, because they're not going to be this cheap for much longer. Dressed in Provincial White with a black vinyl top, it has a classic look. The dramatic Toronado bodywork always looks great in lighter colors where all the awesome details are clearly visible. Check out the flared wheel arches, the hidden headlights, and the lean bumpers that are part of the shape rather than just an add-on. The sheetmetal is in great condition with good panel fit and no evidence of previous accident damage. There's a tiny bubble behind the right rear wheel, but it doesn't seem to be critical and without a lift you won't even see it. Otherwise it's laser straight with a soft gloss that looks appropriate for a car that's just had its 56th birthday. The black vinyl top is in very good condition with no signs of trouble underneath. There's not a lot of trim, but the chrome and stainless is in good condition and appears to be mostly original with only some discoloration on the rear bumper being a demerit. From any angle, this is a really good looking car.The black Deluxe interior features a front bench that looks a lot like buckets, which adds to the Toronado's sporty personality. It also features one of the coolest speedometers ever, a vertical rotating drum, with auxiliary gauges on either side. Climate controls are to the driver's left with the AM/FM radio tucked in to the right. The upholstery has been restored at some point and remains in excellent condition, with newer carpets and door panels that aren't cracked or broken. The list of features is extensive, including power windows and locks, automatic climate control, and a tilt steering column. The power locks are a little sluggish (they're vacuum powered) and the A/C needs a charge, but the interior is in beautiful condition overall. There's also a ton of space thanks to the front-wheel-drive powertrain, which eliminates the transmission tunnel, and the back seat is big enough for real-sized adults. The headliner appears to be original and in great condition and the rather large trunk is correctly outfitted with an original rubber mat and matching full-sized spare with jack assembly. For such a massive car, the Toronado is surprisingly light on its feet. A lot of that is surely do to the 425 cubic inch torque factory under the hood. There's 385 horsepower and a staggering 480 lb-ft. of torque available, and it churns through the front wheels with effortless ease. It starts easily and idles nicely, never feeling like a high-strung motor. Instead, it's smooth and quiet, as you'd expect from a personal luxury car like this. It's wearing proper turquoise engine enamel and the unique twin-snorkel air cleaner assembly and it's probably worth noting that this is a correct 1967 389244D casting, strongly suggesting that it's the original engine. GM was rightfully proud of the TH425 3-speed automatic transaxle, which was essentially a TH400 turned 180 degrees and parked next to the oil pan and driven by something even the engineers called 'the indestructible chain.' The last five decades have vindicated the front-wheel-drive Toronado and Eldorado, making these massive cars feel almost agile out on the road. This car also features optional power front disc brakes, power steering (something this big would be impossible without it), and a mellow-sounding dual exhaust system. It's a little grungy underneath, but the floors, rockers, and other critical areas are completely solid. The rear axle is just along for the ride, so it's a simple beam hanging on leaf springs, but it is part of why this car has such incomparable ride quality. Those unique wheels are a not-so-subtle nod to the 1936 Cord 810, which was obviously the spiritual ancestor of this Toronado, and they're wrapped in 225/75/15 whitewall radials all around.Extras include a factory owner's manual, a spare set of horns, new plug wires, and a few other spare parts.We would argue that the 1967 Toronado is the one to own. 1966 was the first year, but the 1967 is rarer and cleaner, with a smooth front end that many enthusiasts prefer. Add in the disc brakes, and this becomes a competent road car that just eats up pavement at an alarming rate. These are heating up, so now is the moment to put a good one in your garage and add some value as it appreciates. Enthusiasts recognize special cars, and the first-generation Toronado has earned its place in history.
