Description for Oldsmobile Toronado 1967
1967 Oldsmobile Toronado
The Oldsmobile Toronado is a personal luxury car that was produced by Oldsmobile from model years 1966 to 1992. Designed to compete with the Ford Thunderbird and General Motors' own Buick Riviera, the Toronado is historically significant as the first U.S.-produced front-wheel drive automobile since the demise of the Cord in 1937. The Toronado placed third in the 1966 European Car of the Year contest, a distinction no other American car has achieved before or since, and won the 1966 Motor Trend Car of the Year award in the U.S.
It used the GM E platform introduced by the rear-wheel drive Riviera in 1963 and shared a year later with the front-wheel drive Cadillac Eldorado. Although each had quite different styling, the threesome shared the E platform for most of the Toronado's 28-year history.
This car is as close to a “Barn Find” or "Survivor" as most of us will probably find in California. We found this car parked on the side of an older gentleman’s house where it sat for the last 11 years. When he used it regularly he took good care of it. We went thru and took care of any safety items that needed to be addressed to operate the car safely and are now offering it for sale. This car is a true drivable project. It runs and drives great, but sadly does need some cosmetics. The seat have some tears in them, as shown in the pictures, and while the paint is presentable from a distance, a new paint job would make a world of difference, unless you want to keep it as is and have a great sleeper. In 1967 the Toronado came with disc brakes for the first time and a powerful425cid/ 385hp V8 that moves this beautifully shaped vehicle quickly and smoothly down the road. This is an appreciating classic. Hagerty.com has the value of the car in Fair condition at $8800. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, and happy shopping.
