We are currently in the middle of a restoration of a 1973 Torino . Body is about ready for paint , most of the suspension is done . Just having a few fitment problems with the front brakes we are trying to use . Hope we can figure out what we need to do from some the more experienced Torino experts on the forum. The power train will consiste of a 502 big block , a TCI AOD trans and the rebuilt 9" with 373 gears . Hope to make a post soon to try and figure out our brake fitment problem .

Combination of stuff . we had to replace 1 quarter panel so we used one from mac's . also had to replace part of the roof so we cut a section out of a donor roof. The suspension is all stock replacement parts or refurbished original parts with polly bushings . we boxed the rear lower control arms add rear disc brakes.
