1968-1974 FORD TORINO PERFORMANCE PORTFOLIO

THIS IS MUST HAVE BOOK FOR ANY TORINO FAN. THIS IS A BRAND NEW BOOK WITH 136 PAGES AND 21 IN FULL COLOR.

THE TORINO NAME ARRIVED IN 1968 AS THE TOP TRIM LEVEL MODEL OF THE MID-SIZE FAIRLANE RANGE. AS WITH PRACTICALLY EVERY OTHER MODEL IN THE EXTENSIVE FORD CATALOGUE THAT YEAR, IT WAS PERFECTLY POSSIBLE TO BUY A FAIRLANE TORINO EQUIPPED WITH A PUNY 115 HORSEPOWER 200 CUBIC INCH SIX-CYLINDER ENGINE. WHILE A NUMBER OF THESE BASIC VERSIONS WERE UNDOUBTEDLY ORDERED BY MORE THRIFTY CUSTOMERS, THIS WAS THE AGE OF THE MUSCLE CAR, SO THOSE DRIVERS LOOKING FOR EXCITEMENT WOULD SELECT FROM A LIST OF OPTIONAL HIGH-PERFORMANCE V8S, WITH RATINGS GOING UP TO 390HP FOR THE MIGHTY 427 CUBIC INCH MOTOR.

THE HIGH-SPEED IMAGE PORTRAYED BY THE TORINO (ENHANCED BY AN ATTRACTIVE, NEW FASTBACK BODYSYTLE) ON THE STREET WAS CONFIRMED ON THE RACETRACK WITH 20 WINS IN THE 68 NASCAR CHAMPIONSHIP. FURTHER ENDORSEMENT CAME WHEN A TORINO GT CONVERTIBLE-DRIVEN BY WILLIAM CLAY FORD-WAS CHOSEN AS THE PACE CAR FOR THE 52ND INDIANAPOLIS 500 MILE RACE.. .

IN 1969 THE TORINO REALLY CAME INTO ITS OWN. HOTTEST OF ALL THE PRODUCTION VERSIONS WAS THE TORINO COBRA WITH A 335HP, 390 CUBIC INCH V8: AND IT COULD STORM TO 60MPH IN SIX SECONDS. HOWEVER, THE ULTIMATE 69 TORINO HAS TO BE THE TALLADEGA. WITH A LONGER NOSE AND A FLUSH-MOUNTED GRILLE, ONLY 754 OF THESE AERODYNAMICALLY DESIGNED SPECIAL EDITIONS WERE BUILT, BUT THAT WAS ENOUGH. THE AIM BEHIND THE CREATION OF THE TALLADEGA (NAMED AFTER THE NEW SUPER SPEEDWAY IN ALABAMA) WAS TO WIN RACES, AND THAT IT MOST CERTAINLY DID. DAVID PEARSON WON THE NASCAR TITLE FOR FORD WITH 26 WINS AND THE TORINO LED THE PACK. . .

THIS BOOK HELPS BRING BACK THE HISTORY & THE MEMORIES FROM THAT ERA & IS MUST HAVE BOOK FOR ALL TORINO FANS.
