Rusted To Hell, But Great First Muscle Car. — Really liked the look and sound and size. Didn't like the rust and gears out back. Got really sketchy on the highway if you went too quick. It would start to sway and get really twitchy (later my dad owned one a lot like it and it was fine).

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love the Torino's look in '70/'71..

Cons: Back window sucked the butt up when going fast; poor leaf springs made it a hand full over 75mph.

Has Beautiful Lines, Solid Drive Train But Long Way To Go On Body/interior — The overall impact of the shape of the car and the sheer power of the 351 bring lots of satisfaction. Finishing the bodywork and redoing the interior will do even more. Thinking about painting her a "70s" orange with black stripe to off set the look.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 351 Cleveland is a beast!

Cons: Needs some bodywork including floorboards and paint

1970 Ford Torino Gt Project — there seem to be only a few around here, but when this is done it will truly be in a class of its own! so we all hope lol, nice seeing the vision i have on this project coming to an end!

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

Pros: all the work and money put into this project is starting to pay off

Cons: took longer at body shop than expected, not cuz it was in bad shape, but from body shop politics, if there is such a thing

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