1976 Torino Elite Donk

What's not to love about a '76 Torino rollin' on 26s?  Well, the ride quality, the lack of stability, the possible stress on the prop shaft, inability to cheaply replace suspension parts and more.  Still, these are all about style and someone thought this was worth building.  Is it worth buying?


This thing is powered by a 351 Windsor and the seller has included videos of it running (see ad text).  We must say it's the quietest 351 we've heard in a long time.  That's all we have to say about this one.

Not exactly stock...


Here's that 70s-liscious grill and emblem.


Rear view shows the lift.


Elite is the trim level, but it wasn't originally airbrushed on the side of the car.


Seller was kind enough to provide proof that this thing sits almost three feet off the ground.


Three-spoke wheels seems very much late 80s/early 90s, but not in 26-inch diameter.  Tire does nothing to aid ride quality.


Interior looks pretty good, minus the lack of installed door panels.


Here's the Elite inspiration!


And, yes, door panels are included.  We don't know why they aren't installed...





Here's an undercarriage shot.  We guess not just any shop will work on this.
