Its great you still have your 76'. I sold my 74' to a friend and later saw it in a junkyard trashed out. I had this sense of panic like I wanted to rescue it, but at the time, funds and storage space didnt allow for that to happen. I had found a huge "TORINO" decal, it was like 8" tall & 2-1/2' foot wide, and put it on the left bottom corner of the trunk lid. Each rear quarter had a prism "Torino" decal on it. In the above photo, it had ET torque thrust rims on the back, later I went to a full set of Cragar S/S wheels with L60/14s on the back. Bet you enjoyed the Billy Squire blast one last time. Have you ever posted photos of your "decorated" 76'?

It has been used as a shelf for many years. Don't have any pictures of it, but I can make some of the cool (back then) "accessories" if I can get a shot of them on it, lol.

Lynchster- Thanks! It was originally dark blue. I had the paint buffed out & waxed since the photos were taken, the paint isn't perfect, but it looks pretty good for a driver. I've gotten lazy in my later years, and washing & waxing a car isn't as much fun as it once was

Recently noticed the afternoon sun casts an almost perfect phantom laser stripe on the side of my solid blue Torino

That is pretty cool! I wonder if that was how Ford came up with that stripe in the first place?

Adding a laser stripe isn't out of the question in my mind, its on the ever - growing wish list with: bucket seats/console, new carpet, dash pad cover, floor shifter, functional A/C, CD player, tinted windows, engine detail, sport gauge cluster, trunk lock cover, rechrome rear bumper, hood scoop.......
