REDUCED!! 1968 Ford Torino GT coupe. Lime Gold, or as I call it, "green". Originally purchased in San Francisco this Torino also spent years in the desert area of Washington State. It's bone dry, rust free body made it an ideal candidate for a restoration. It was imported to Canada in 2012, and she's ready to go home! This Torino was built on March 26, 1968 at the Atlanta plant (I have the Marti Report). The engine is the original 289 V8 with hi-po heads; numbers matching. The engine was rebuilt 4000 miles ago by noted Vancouver mechanic Joe Mizsak. The work was top notch, and engine runs awesome. This car has never had rust, and has no bodywork. Over the last four years, I've given this Torino: new vinyl roof, new paint, new headliner, new carpet, new dash pad, new brakes front & back, new tires, new windshield, new shocks (and various other suspension components), new radio and speakers (one of those new radios that looks like an old radio but has an aux cord for an iPod and fits in the original space of the original radio). The front buckets are not original, but are era-correct. Back seats are original and in perfect condition. Any deficiencies with this Torino are small and cosmetic (such as needing new front arm rests, console for which I still have the lid, as well as a few small nicks in the paint). This is one great car!
