This car was built in Chicago, Illinois on March 25, 1976 with bright red paint, black vinyl bucket seats, automatic XP-type (C4) transmission, non-locking rear axle, HR78x14/B Radial tires, left and right hand racing mirrors, styled steel magnum wheels, and 351 CID 2 bbl. Windsor engine. For quite some now, the car has had a 1971 351 Cleveland engine in it.
This car is very near and dear to my heart because it's the first S&H Torino I ever owned. Penny and I bought it from Scott T. in Ohio 1998. We sold it to Rich M. in California in 2000. Rich sold it to Richard R. in Texas, and he sold it to Bobby C. in New York in 2003. Bobby C. sold it to Joshua L. in 2016, and it stayed in New York where it belongs. Penny and I were happy to see our old car again at the All-Ford Nationals in Carlisle, PA in 2005 and again in 2016.
Joshua says, "I grew up watching "Starsky & Hutch" re-runs on TV and VHS with my father and grandfather, and I saw the movie in 2004. From the first time I saw it, this car was my favorite. After purchasing the car, I purchased a truckload of parts and have great plans to make this car close to new again, to take it to local car shows, and to have fun driving it."
