Description for Oldsmobile Toronado 1966

You're looking at the first year for one of the most interesting and beautiful American coupes every built. This 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado has a big 425 V8, sleek sliver paint, and a luxury A/C interior. And it's all offered for quite an affordable price. For some of us this represents everything that was so cool about the '60s. Not only was it the muscle car era, but also automakers weren't afraid to try something as bold as this.... It has an extra-long hood, hidden headlights, muscular wheel arches, and rounded rear that almost looked like the future 2nd gen Firebird. So this coupe embodies sporty elegance. The design was so advanced it doesn't look over half a century old today! Also, part of why this example looks so especially nice is the sleek application of sliver reflects nicely off of amazingly straight sheetmetal. Another key to the Toronado's elegance was its restrained use of brightwork. It helps emphasize its use in places like the extra wide grille, form-fitting bumpers, and artistic factory wheel covers - all of which is presented quite nicely on this one today. Inside is an exceptionally well-preserved and well-presented interior that's nicely detailed in black and brightwork. You immediately see the impact front-wheel drive has on a luxury car like this. The flat floor means you can have genuine space for three in both rows of seats. If you want more individual comfort, the armrest on the front split-bench makes this feel like an expansive personal luxury car. Yours even power adjusts to the ideal position. From behind the wheel you experience all the best '60s design has to offer. The deluxe Olds steering wheel is a work of art set in black and chrome. Beyond that, the original gauge package shows that a designer spent some time getting extra creative. All the controls are within an arm's reach, including the power windows, AM/FM stereo, and cold-blowing factory air conditioning. Under the hood the correct 425 cubic-inch V8. This is believed to have a rebuilt during its lifetime, and between that and the well-maintained appearance, it runs quite strong. The Super Rocket big block makes some of the best power of the era thanks to the factory Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor that's still on this coupe today. These cars were considered revolutionary with the three-speed automatic feed in power to the front wheels. In fact, this first-year Toronado became an engineering benchmark for other projects. But what you really want to know is how this one glides down the road like a big block luxury car should. Features like the power steering and power brakes also help give it a true '60s cruiser feeling. A Toronado like this offers a lot of vintage appeal for a very reasonable price. So you might want to hurry up before the market catches on to this big block bargain. Call today!!!
