Details

1972 Ford Gran Torino coupe is the total package classic. V8 powered, with a cruiser-ready attitude.

This was the debut year for a new style of Torino, and it was basically a single-year design. Ford created downright sporty sheet metal for this coupe, and it looks especially nice since the body-hugging bumpers and side trim are complete and shining.

And the bright green paint was given a later respray to make sure it still looks bright. This year’s car had a terrific muscle car kind of intimidation with a huge grille that looks like it wants to consume lesser cars.

The overall impression that you’ll get is that this one is a distinct driver car. That’s also why the upgraded Modern wheels with Cooper Cobra tires not only have a great look, but they are also perfect for better driving.

The carpet, door panels, dash, and headliner all have a clean look of quality. The seats are particularly nice with the insignia trim embossed across the rear one, and the front has a split bench with high-back comfort.

You’ll like the classic feeling, right down to details like the working dome light and upgraded Grant GT Tri-spoke steering wheel. It is equipped with factory air conditioning.

The radio has been upgraded to a Blaupunkt AM/FM cassette for your listening pleasure.

Under the hood is the power house 351 cubic-inch V8.

 

The power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and front discs make for a solid all-around cruiser.

Ford fans know this style was really only around for a single year before bumper laws took away many of the exciting lines. That’s why the ’72 fastback will always be in demand.
