1976 Ford Torino Description:

Up for sale is my 1976 Ford Elite with a 351 Windsor V8 (2 Barrel Carb) and rebuilt C4 Automatic transmission. Runs, drives, stops perfectly. Lots of new parts including: Rebuilt Carburetor, alternator, radiator, water pump, thermostat, gas tank, vinyl top, belts, tires, & full tune up items (spark plugs, wires, etc). The car was originally equipped with AC, but that has been disconnected. Engine runs smooth and doesn't doesn't have any issues. The automatic transmission was rebuilt about 10,000 miles ago by the previous owner and shifts perfectly. Includes original owner's manual. Aftermarket Audiovox 8 track deck works decently well for its age. I put a full set of new speakers in the car. The car has some rust in the trunk, but not bad enough to require repair; I've been using the trunk as-is. Floors are solid. The roof had some bad rust when I bought the car under where the old vinyl top was, and I repaired it myself about a year ago and I haven't had any issues with my repair. The paint on this car is original. I replaced the blower motor for the heat, but I think one of the blend doors in the duct work isn't working because the heat doesn't come out of the vents like it is supposed to. But the heat "works" because the cab gets warmer when you run the heat so it is coming out somewhere. The next thing I would do to this car if I was going to keep it is to replace the carpet because it's coming apart in the driver's foot well. Also, there is some old bodywork on the passenger's door that you can see in the pictures.
This is not technically a Ford Torino, it is a Ford Elite. They stopped calling them Torino's in 1976 although they are the same car as previous years. Nowhere on the car does it say "Torino".

This car isn't perfect, but it's definitely fun to drive and cruise. Starts every time. Please message me if you have any questions. Thanks!
