Question: Does it mean anything if I still have both sets of keys to the Torino?

Right now that isn't possible because the window got shot out by a BB gun and the door locks don't work anyway. Why is one of the door/tailgate lock keys stamped Briggs and Stratton?

 One more question: Can I use the A/C system out of the mark 8 in the wagon or does it need the computer for that too?

As you can see, my front armests are toast. Does anyone know if they're reproduced or where I can find some? Going to get some work done soon, I've procrastinated too much.

Dearbornclassics.com has em, but ask in the classified section and I'm sure someone here has some extras. I just bought one recently and am very happy with my purchase. Good luck!

Do you think Dearborn's prices are reasonable?

define reasonable.  i would say yes, on most things.   when there are items that other places have... they are usually a little higher than their competition. but they carry alot of things that i havent found anywhere else (i may be wrong) and their prices on those things are not astronomical.  i have to order some armrests for my car too and last i checked they were only 15 or 20 bucks each.  not TOO bad... ill check tonight in my catalog when i get home.

Isn't your interior the same color as mine is? I need new seatbelts too, and I don't know if I should keep black or go to green.

Until I get it scanned, I have been trying to post a picture of a picture of the Torino in 1977 at Walt Disney World, but my computer says the file is a JPEG and the forum says it's not?

Thanks for the offer, I'll keep it in mind. Can anyone help with the photo file type?

you might have the change the extension from .jpeg to .jpg

make sure it's all lowercase like my post

forum is picky about uploads

even if it says .JPG it might not go

if you're having trouble, PM me and you can email it to me and I'll fix it up and send it back to you

Old photo of the car in 1977 at Disney World. I'll see if I can find some more photos that aren't as close up.
