1966 Oldsmobile Toronado

425 V8 automatic

Front wheel drive

This 1966 Toronado is a standard model with more options than most Deluxes.  The only options it lacks are power windows and power antenna.  I have had this car in my garage for over 10 years and never got around to restoring it.  I need to make space in my garage so it has to go.  The car seems to be original. Everything is intact.  The quarters look like they were patched and painted a while ago and will need attention again (see photos).  The trunk lid has very light surface rust but is solid.  There doesn’t appear to be any rust where the rear vents drain. 

 

The chrome is good all around.  There is rust on the body in places (see photos) and the front passenger side fender is dented. The headliner is intact.  The hideaway/ pop up headlights work.   I tried to photograph any of the problem spots on the car, and please ask questions and request more photos if I missed something. 

 

THIS CAR STARTS AND DRIVES.  The tires are shot, so it’s not drivable to your location, but it can be driven onto a flatbed or hauler easily.  The gear selector needs adjusting; it’s misaligned when you put it into gear, but the car shifts nicely and drives. 

 

Options:

  • Headrests

  • 6-way power seat

  • Vacuum operated door locks

  • Tilt/telescope steering wheel

  • Rear defogger

  • Comfortron – automatic climate control (air conditioning) – heat works, but the air cond. Is missing a belt, so I cannot test it – but the clutch is free

  • Clock (not working)

  • Cornering lamps

  • Cruise control

  • AM/FM radio with Wonderbar – the radio works intermittently

  • Oldsmobile visor vanity mirror

  • Trunk release button in glove box - works


I am representing it as accurately as I can based on my knowledge and have tried to give as much information as possible.  Please do not hesitate to ask questions about anything I may have missed in the description.  I am unable to test the function of some of the options.

eBay Find of the Day: 1976 GMC Motorhome is a jolly green giant

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 18:01:00 EST

If you have a need to relive the 1970s, then here is the vehicle for you. This groovy blast from the past is a 1976 GMC Motorhome currently for auction in Florida on eBay Motors, and it is one green machine - just not in the modern sense.
The seller claims that this beast has had just two owners and has covered a mere 61,308 miles in its decades on the road. It's reportedly never been restored or repainted and comes with all of the necessary books and manuals. A 7.5-liter (455-cubic-inch) Oldsmobile V8 with a three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission powering the front wheels propels this far-out RV, and the double set of rear wheels out back use a self-leveling air suspension to provide a cushy ride.
The purported low miles and good condition really make this GMC a stand out, though. The exterior combination of lime stripes and beige with just a touch of green is like nothing else on the road today. Plus, the polished bumpers and wheels make it all pop. Inside, it's even better with monochromatic green upholstery and shag carpet. It features everything you'd ever need on a long trip, including a bathroom, kitchenette and lots of seating. The only hint of modernization is an HD TV next to the stove, but its size is a perfect fit for the hole there.

Ferrari FF pitted against Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser in crazy Generation Gap comparison

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 19:58:00 EST

The folks behind Generation Gap have lost their minds with this latest video. The goal here is to determine the ultimate family cruiser, but the choices are what you would least expect, with a heavily modded 1970 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser going up against a 2012 Ferrari FF.
You might anticipate an over-40-year-old Oldsmobile to pale in comparison to any modern Ferrari, but this wagon has a ton of secrets under its skin thanks to Lingenfelter. First, it packs a supercharged LS3 V8 with a claimed 650 horsepower and a six-speed manual gearbox. That big upgrade in power is further helped with air suspension and massive Wilwood disc brakes. The result is nothing short of deafening, with blaring yelps whenever the driver even nudges the accelerator.
The alternative sounds just as good, albeit in very different way. The Ferrari's 6.3-liter V12 pumps out 651 hp and 504 pound-feet with a part-time all-wheel drive system. While the FF lacks a lot of the hauling ability of the Olds, it makes up for the deficit in handling, luxury, and in many eyes, simply by having the famous prancing horse on the grille.

Jay Leno bangs up his own Toronado in GT6

Wed, 11 Dec 2013 12:33:00 EST

Ever since Gran Turismo 4, Jay Leno has had at least one of his cars included in the popular racing simulator (starting with the Tank Car), and more of his machines appears in Gran Turismo 6. They include this nose-heavy, front-wheel-drive V8-powered muscle car. Yes, that aptly describes a 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado - except Leno's is rear-wheel drive. And it has a Cadillac CTS-V race engine modified to pump out 1,070 horsepower.
For the latest Jay Leno's Garage episode, he takes his real Toronado out for a cruise and then drives the virtual one like he stole it, accruing some body damage along the way. Leno also drives the virtual supercar Mercedes-Benz designed for GT6, the AMG Vision Gran Turismo Concept that debuted at the LA Auto Show, along with the real one, which is a 1:1-scale model. The model is radio-controlled and equipped with a small electric motor, sufficient to move it on and off of auto show floors.
Head below to watch the episode, which includes a few words from GT6 creator Kazunori Yamauchi.
