While not common, I would impress upon anyone who has a Torino (or any other vehicle) with a manual box to grease them asap if it hasn't been done so already.
My steering box with 72000 miles on it was basically dry and consumed about two thirds of a cartridge.(!) I never even noticed when driving the car or even steering it while moving in and out of the garage. It only caused me pause while I was cleaning it for paint and wound up working the steering shaft back and forth. The action seemed a bit ratchety.   
It's simple to do and only cost you about $5.
