When it comes to a unique look, this classic 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado does the trick. It has great classic bodylines and one of the coolest looking front ends out there. The pop up headlights work like new and rival those on any Corvette. All of the bumpers, trim, grill, and emblems are in place and in great condition. The car is coated a light green (almost turquoise) that shines beautifully in the sunlight. It rides on the original style wheels with redline tires. 1966 was the first year that the Toronado was produced and Oldsmobile was certainly looking into the future. Added features included draft-free ventilation system and an upgrade from the Starfire 425 to the Super Rocket V8! The 425 V8 engine runs very strong with no smoking or problems. This super rocket V8 is painted in a matching blue style with the correct Toronado air cleaner. The turbo hydromatic heavy duty 3 speed transmission shifts smoothly with no problems. All of the lights and electrical are in place and working. The car has drum brakes on all four which slow the car to a stop with ease and no noise. The Green interior is complete and all in good shape. The car is very comfortable to drive and ride in. The dash is all in its original style and in good condition. All gauges are in place and working as they should. The car utilizes a rolling drum style speedometer which is very unique to this classic. The original style radio is in place and sounds great. This is a classic you won't see everyday so don't pass up this opportunity! This unique classic could be yours for $20,000.00!
Following solid sales and critical success for the Buick Riviera, General Motors came out with a groundbreaking design for its next “personal-luxury” car.
I worked at Clark Oldsmobile in West Palm Beach, Florida, right after graduating high school in 1978. This (formerly) beautiful but still rare and unusual Oldsmobile Toronado came in for service and oil changes.
For the 1966 model year, Oldsmobile rolled out a relatively revolutionary car — a full-size car pulled around by its front wheels rather than pushed around by those at the rear.
