For Sale: 1968 Oldsmobile Toronado in Valley City, Ohio

Vehicle Description

The Oldsmobile Toronado was first introduced in 1966 and featured many technologies not common to vehicles from that era such as an automatic front wheel drive transaxle, torsion bar front suspension and unibody construction. This 1968 example was purchased by its current owner almost 30 years ago and has been extensively reworked with an emphasis on more horsepower and less weight while paying tribute to the Hurst Olds. Notable features include a multi stage, show quality paint job, custom/professionally upholstered bucket seating, a custom dashboard and center console, a professionally built 455 Rocket V8 (documented/blue printed), Hurst accessories, and much more. Accompanied by extensive records detailing its build (multiple binders with all records), this Toronado is now being offered by its seller out of Ohio, having covered approximately 1,600 miles since its completion in 2017, it IS sorted.  There are NO known issues with the performance or function of any systems on this build. This 1968 example is finished in a custom multi-stage shade of white with accent stripe and a white vinyl roof. The seller notes that all body panels and glass retain their original dimensions and that all brightwork and trim remain OE or OE-style.  Additionally, the seller takes pride in the fact that this car has never been wet because of Mother Nature or from a garden hose, it is nearly spotless.   A collection of detailed images can be found in the gallery along with photos documenting the cars refurbishment. Details include “Hurst” badging on the fender and at the rear, dual polished exhaust outlets, and a custom ram-air intake system incorporated into the headlights/grill, specifically made and machined to allow for clearance under the stock hood. It rides on a set of 15” steel with polished hubcaps which come dressed in Coker redline tires from 2007. The cabin has been completely reupholstered in white vinyl including the front bucket seats, rear bench, door panels, and headliner. The floors are lined with black carpets and the dashboard is upholstered in black vinyl with custom-machined panels housing a suite of Auto-Meter instrumentation and indicator lights with "push button start". Details include power windows, a custom center console, Simpson 3” racing lap belts, and a Hurst pistol grip shifter.   Power comes from an Oldsmobile 455 Rocket V8 which has been bored .040 over and professionally built/upgraded by RPM of Medina, Ohio.  The front wheels are driven by way of a 3-speed automatic transaxle with significant thrust from approx. 500 hp. In the trunk are mounted fuel cell and cutom battery box with meter and master kill switch. This sale will include owner's literature, several binders, records, and a clean title. Thanks for taking the time to look at our latest offering.
