General description :
SHOW QUALITY TORONADO, #S MATCH 455 V8, COLD AC, GORGEOUS PAINT & INTERIOR, WOW
With its bright paint, A/C interior, and absolutely unique styling, this 1969 Oldsmobile Toronado hits all the right notes for a cool cruising classic. That's especially true since it also still has its numbers-matching big block under the hood.
Hidden headlights, a seriously long hood, and extra flare in the fenders – oh yeah, the Olds stylists knew how to make a very cool car. And the details on this one only get better. Like on the bumpers, where the front has an intricate design with amazing symmetry, and way the rear one hugs the body as an integral part of the design. In fact, this example is complete – right down to the rear insignia marker lights and turbine-style wheels. It's all wrapped in a modern and glossy white with a nice contrasting black pinstripe that highlights some of this car's best curves.
The black pinstripe on the outside is also a nice preview of the color inside. This is a highly original interior, and it's preserved quite well. The seats are correct, including the comfortable cloth inserts for where you sit. In fact, comfort was the big goal for the premium Toronado. It's front-wheel drive layout provides for a flat floor, and its large size mean everyone gets excellent legroom. But no matter how many people are along for the ride, you still remain the king. The split-bench power adjusts to the ideal position, and it has an armrest to provide the driver with the feeling of a personal luxury car. The upgraded steering wheel gives you an awesome view of the unique vertical speedometer, as well as the surrounding gauges and upgraded aux readouts. And you'll love that power windows let you show off the hardtop profile without ever leaving the driver's seat. And since the factory air conditioning is blowing cold, you can do this all through the summer season.
Under the hood is the original numbers-matching 455 cubic-inch V8. This has a well-preserved and correct presentation, right down to the metallic blue on the block. And the freshness of the supporting components like the belts, wires, and hoses tell you it has been under the right care. The Super Rocket big block makes some of the best power of the era thanks to the factory Rochester Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, and the strong three-speed automatic transmission has no trouble getting the power to the front wheels. It's a unique setup that was an engineering marvel for its time. But what's really important is that the big power and smooth ride this coupe has today is exactly what makes you so fondly remember Oldsmobile. And with power steering and front disc brakes, this is really an effortless anytime classic.
Beautiful, powerful, unique, and above all, quite affordable – this Toronado is a terrific classic for value and distinction. So don't miss you chance, call today!
