1966 Oldsmobile Toronado Deluxe 7.0l on 2040-cars
Burlington, West Virginia, United States
I have an all-original rust-free 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado I would like to sell. This is a California car with the original 1966 California plates (front and rear). The plates go for over $250 each on ebay.
The front right bumper end was scraped on something by a previous owner, and you should know that there is currently a transmission fluid leak, but it holds fluid for a few days. Interior is in good condition with the exception of a tear in the drivers side seat and a very small amount of cracked trim on the drivers side (pictured). The shifter knob is missing; unfortunately I don't have it. It came that way when I bought it last spring. This car is in amazing condition for its age, considering it has never been restored other than having been re-painted one time in the original color. I believe the previous owner also had the drum brake system refreshed. The power seats and power windows all work fine. I replaced the power window motor on the driver's side a couple weeks ago as it was getting weak. I've also had the starter rebuilt and replaced the weatherstripping on both doors and around the trunk. The a/c does not work but probably would with a recharge.
I have the original owner's manual, as well as a full service manual. This is a front wheel drive car (the first made in America since the '37 Cord), and has a 425 cubic inch engine that produces in excess of 380 horsepower. The title is clear.
Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. I will front no cost in getting this vehicle to you. I also have this item for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end this auction at any time prior to its close.
Thanks for looking! Please message me with any questions. Happy bidding!

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.
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.
General Motors today announced a truly massive recall covering some 8.4 million vehicles in North America. Most significantly, 8.2 million examples of the affected vehicles are being called back due to "unintended ignition key rotation," though GM spokesperson Alan Adler tells Autoblog that this issue is not like the infamous Chevy Cobalt ignition switch fiasco.
For the sake of perspective, translated to US population, this total recall figure would equal a car for each resident of New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, the District of Columbia, Vermont and Wyoming. Combined. Here's how it all breaks down:
7,610,862 vehicles in North America being recalled for unintended ignition key rotation. 6,805,679 are in the United States.
