Starting life in 1962 as little more than a design painting by David North called the "Flame Red Car," with no real intention for production; the Oldsmobile Toronado has since developed from design study to rare and high sought after design classic.
This well cared for Provincial White with original green interior 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado is an excellent car, with a unique heritage and no shortage of power . This very rare and handsome Toronado features: 385 horse 425cid rebuilt V8 with 4-bbl carburetor, column shift automatic transmission, air conditioning, am/fm stereo, power antenna, power steering, and power brakes. Despite the fact that Oldsmobile had been working on a front-wheel drive layout since 1958, the Toronado was the first true production automobile in the United States to feature front-wheel drive since the demise of the Chord in 1937. These very special and highly styled coupes have, like the Riviera, been unsung classics of the genre in years past-however, these collectible and potent performers (0-60 in 7.5 seconds and a top speed of 135) have come onto the radar in automotive circles and are just entering the beginning of their price arc.
Unlike many cars that have recently had their price bubbles popped, these Toronados make an excellent entry level investment at a price that’s hard to resist.
