Yeah, It's a Hybrid...It burns gas and tires.

No matter how good she looks, somebody, somewhere, is tired of her sh*t.

Beauty is skin deep, ugliness goes clear to the bone.

The February 2023 Ride of the Month is long time member "Steve M's" 1976 Ford Gran Torino 2-door hardtop.

Steve's '76 Gran Torino is an H-Code car powered a 351 Windsor and originally had a FMX transmission with 2.75:1 open differential, air conditioning and magnum 500 wheels.   He purchased the car around 2019 but this was his 5th Gran Torino over the last 40 years.  Since then Steve has done lots of work to the car including upgrading and rebuilding the 351 engine, replacing the FMX with a AOD automatic, installing new springs (CVPI and Cargo Coils), and new Cragar wheels. He also recently discovered the previous owner installed a trac-lok differnetal, which he believes is around a 3.50:1 ratio.  Steve is constantly doing little improvements and upgrades to his car and the result it is that it is one fine machine.

Congratulations Steve!

Take a look at all the great work Steve has done to his Torino in his project thread here:


Here are some pics of Steve's Torino:
