Description for Oldsmobile Toronado 1966

You're looking at the first year for one of the most interesting and beautiful American coupes every built. This 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado has a numbers-matching big 425 V8 running to the front wheels, which gave it unique styling any extra space to add a luxurious interior. All of this is preserved exceptionally well on this affordable coupe.For some of us this represents everything that was so cool about the '60s. Not only was it the muscle car era, but also automakers weren't afraid to try something as bold as this. With its extra long hood, hidden headlights, muscular wheel arches, and rounded rear that almost looked like the future 2nd gen Firebird, this car embodied sporty elegance. The design was so advanced it doesn't look 50 years old today! Also part of why this example looks so especially nice is its original shade of code-W Silver Mist reflects nicely off of amazingly straight sheetmetal. Another key to the Toronado's elegance was its restrained use of brightwork. It helpsemphasize its use in places like the extra wide grille, form-fitting bumpers, and artistic factory wheel covers. All of which is presented quite nicely on this one today.Inside is an exceptionally well-preserved interior that is nicely detailed in the original black vinyl and brightwork. You immediately see the impact front-wheel drive has on a luxury car like this. The flat floor means you can have genuine space for three in both rows of seats. If you want more individual comfort, the armrest on the front split-bench makes this feel like an expansive personal luxury car. From behind the wheel you experience all the best '60s design has to offer. The deluxe Olds steering wheel is a work of art set in black and chrome. Beyond that, the original gauge package shows that a designer spent some time getting extra creative. All the controls are within an arm's reach, including the power windows, AM/FM stereo, cruise control, and provisions for air conditioning.Under the hood is the original numbers-matching 425 cubic-inch V8. The Super Rocket big block makes some of the best power of the era thanks to the factory Rochester Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor that's still on this coupe today. These cars were considered revolutionary with the TH400 three-speed automatic powering the front wheels. In fact, this first-year Toronado became an engineering benchmark for other projects. But what you really want to know is how this one glides down the road like a true big block luxury car should. Features like the power steering and the reproduction redline tires give this a true '60s cruiser feeling.Complete with documentation such as the original warranty card and owner's manual, this is an exceptionally well-preserved example of a unique vintage luxury machine. And with a price like this, you know it will be gone soon. Call today!!!
