I have this car up for sale on e-bay



INFO:

Straight from the high-banked ovals of NASCAR, this 1968 Ford Torino GT was the fastback aero champ of the late-60s, at least until the arrival of the Mopar winged wonders. With a matching-numbers 390 cubic inch V8, an awesome factory color combination, and a very family-friendly interior, this should be your next muscle car. This car was built at the Atlanta, Georgia FORD plant on February 15, 1968 and never left the state. No rust, no wreck, all matching numbers! Original owner until 2017!!

The fastback body style scales up from the Mustang pretty well, don't you think? Big, bold, and looking seriously fast, this code T paint candy apple red Torino GT is all about street presence. The paint job was done several years ago and certainly suits the fastback shape. There are a few aging flaws, of course, but none of them detract from the vintage NASCAR look that simply screams performance. Factory white stripes highlight the wonderfully aggressive quarter panels without being excessive, and it wears 390 badges with pride. Of course, the Torino was close to the top-of-the-line, so there's still enough chrome to make sure it gets the point across, and it appears that the bumpers and the rest of the trim has been freshened for a very clean look. Perhaps more importantly, the glass remains in good original condition, particularly the giant rear window, which is surely almost impossible to replace.

White bucket seat with rare factory console and automatic transmission make this car feel as sporty inside as it looks outside. The upholstery is in excellent condition, and even the driver's seat shows very minimal wear. Original carpets are in equally good shape and along with the interior the door panels are original, albeit in excellent condition. The dash has a racy look with four round pods for the gauges accomplishing the Torino's upscale mission .The trunk opening is rather narrow, but once you're in there, trunk space is impressive under that fastback roof line and includes a correct mat, full-sized spare, and jack assembly.

With 390 cubic inches pushing it around, this Torino has the moves to match its looks. This is the car's original, numbers-matching S-code engine. It idles smoothly and pulls with mountainous torque, and if you want a big block you can drive every day, this is it. The exhaust system gives it a deep, performance voice and the automatic transmission is durable enough to handle all that torque. The chassis isn't detailed, but it is quite clean.  The Marti Report says there are 3.25 gears in the 9-inch rear, so it's an easy cruiser that's still punchy around town. Cool factory GT wheels with 215/70/14 Super Star radials give it the right low, sleek look.

Documented with a Marti Report, this is an unusual Ford performance machine with a great pedigree that is doing nothing but continuing to climb in value.
