Ron might have sold the car already, the last time i had seen it for sale was last october when he had ended the auction because the car probably sold on another website.

To see the last advertisement for the car Click here.

Late last year he was selling the Gran Torino - my guess is that he no longer visits here. He's still active on another forum that I frequent, however.  If you need to reach him, PM me and I'll try and relay the message to him.

I am rarely here but wanted to check in. I sold the car to a fellow in the Midwest. Not sure if he has it, but some folks have harvested some pictures from this thread and have tried to scam people by advertising the car for sale at like $15k, must sell quick, send money, etc.

A couple of people who were almost duped contacted me via this thread and I've told them what I could. So be careful out there!

I hope the car is enjoying its new life. I've had a few projects since the Torino and am currently restoring my old 1985 5L notchback Mustang with my daughter. Yes, the exact one I owned back in the day, same VIN, same car. I found it using Google Earth, snooping, and help from a police officer friend. Build is over on Four Eyed Pride and I think it'll be a keeper.

Good to hear from you again Ron.
I must have read thru your improved touring build a dozen times helping a friend build a 97 mustang for his daughter...
Was wondering where you had been.

Glad the build thread was helpful. We ended up building three of those Mustangs and I've a very complete build thread on another forum that has quite a bit of customer suspension fab. We're applying all of those techniques to the 95 LX build located here:

My daughter is helping a lot with this build. She actually helped a little with the Torino too. Good times.

We ended up using a 4.2 out of an f150, and a split-port conversion.
Street car. No rules.
Melody couldn't keep a clutch in the car.
She told her dad he should try driving in heels...
First time I ever saw him without a comeback.
