$15,000.00 Until I Get The Paint Done Again Anyhow. — Performance - this has a 351 Windsor, c4 with a shift kit. It is going to perform much better this year because I am totally rebuilding the entire drive train. Build Quality - This car is built to last, nice thick body sheet metal, and a full frame similar to that of a truck. Appearance - This is the best quality of the car, it is a fast back with straight lines, it is meant to look like it is going fast even when it is parked, and it does. Cost of ownership - The mileage is surprisingly good, it is easier on gas than our 2002 Dodge Caravan, and it does need some new gauges simply because it is a 35 year old car, but it doesn't require any regular repairs or maintenance. Fun Factor - Oh it is fun, when people turn their heads to admire your car everywhere you drive and when you step on it and the rear wheels try to pass the front ones, which is what it is going to run like this summer, not so much last summer.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Somewhat rare

Cons

Gas Mileage

Greta — Actually, She is a 1973 Grant Torino. 351 Cleveland 2 Barrel, 3 speed automatic. She is great for cruzing with my friends. The gas mileage could be better, but hey it's 1973 technology. The engine sounds good but with the transmission and rear end I can't burn any rubber.

Friends Call It "the Car" — I loved the blue paint and the red, orange and yellow striped seats. Everyone that came up to the car would say, those seats are so cool! I would really like to get another one and restore it, paint it blue with the 351C enigine chromed out.

I Seen It And Wouldnt Leave Till It Was Mine Need I Say More — it brought back memories of when i was young liked the ford sports cars and this was a great example of a duel purpose ride drives great just floats on the road steering is tight and really responsive lots of brakes as well as go just a few more ponys and it would be a blast

1973 Ford Grand Torino Sport — Another car I loved. My second car. My Mom bought it for me off of my friend. It had a 400 Ford engine. Looked a lot " Starsky and Hutch" at the front but way different at the back. Because it was a "Sport" the back was sloped down and lloked cool. Totally different lloking tail lights etc, from the regular Torino. Automatic transmission on the floor. I loved the extras that Ford put in them, like courtesy lights in the backseat area, etc. Mine was red with a really cool metalic stripe down the side. Until I smacked it up, and rebuilt it. I didn't have money for paint. My Mom liked the beige colour of my bic lighter, and paid for that colour paint job. Gimme a break, I was young.

Big And Red — 351 Cleveland V*, Red on the outside and black on the inside. I remember the only option it had - AM Radio. This card would not die. I ended up driving it in the 80's. It was *huge*. In my memory it was about 8 feet wide and 25 feet long, but I am sure it wasn't...

This Is My First Car And It Was A Good Choice. By The_rok72
