Only one car from the 70's had a movie made where it was literally the title of the movie. Nobody else made a 'good' movie anyways. I might revisit that statement if we get a crazy 73 corvette with some crazy bodywork and even crazier paint.
Well before Clint Eastwood's Gran Torino came out, the '72 Gran Torinos already had a bit of a cult following. They were a 1 year only front end with an aggressive hood scoop and a unique for 1972 grill. Most of them came with an extensive molding package fit for the times. The 'Sport' package gave you a Laser Stripe set up down the body side which (thankfully) deleted the moldings. These cleaned up the car quite a bit and helped break up the big broad body sides of the bigger for '72 Torinos. The result was a surprisingly good looking mid-sized Muscle Car.
This '72 is decked out in an older and worn repaint of its original Light Pewter Metallic. The car still looks great at a glance (or a distance) but the clear is failing. Overall the panels line up quite well and the chrome trim is in exceptional condition. Going over the car it is quite solid with rust at the drivers rear wheel openings and passenger rear lower corners, see pics. The trunk and floors which are so often issues in these cars are overall quite good with a soft spot on the passenger rear floor, again see pics.
Inside, this one has the super desirable factory bucket seats with floor shift console. Obviously the interior was 'Upgraded' with some velour custom seating complete with matching headliner. This wasn't a cheap job when done and the more you see it...the more you like it. The upgrades didn't stop there either. The stereo system had a tape player added...and not a cheap cassette either...an 8-track. To that it has speaker switches so you can run on the front speakers or the rear speakers or for when you want to rock out to Grand Funk Railroad...just choose ALL!
Under the hood the 351 is the original born with motor. It fires up easily and runs well. We didn't get any information on prior rebuilds. The transmission is the heavy duty C4, often referred to as the C5. It works nicely but does have a small leak out of the bellhousing. This one sat for several years in Montana so there is a chance the seal will soften and re-seal, then again it might not.
The Magnum 500 wheels and Cooper Cobra tires are brand new units. The wheels are 15x7" reproductions with the correct wheel center caps. The tires are 215 65 Cooper Cobras.
