1974 Ford Torino Starsky & Hutch Replica
AWESOME TV CAR, 428 COBRA JET, 2X4BBL, AUTO, PS, PB, READY FOR THE OPEN ROAD!
Are you in the market for an instantly recognizable car from the big screen and TV? Or are you possibly looking for an ultimate sleeper car that will surprise everybody at your local car show with a quick turn of the key? Well this '74 Ford Torino fits the bill of both. Carrying a iconic Starsky and Hutch scheme, this is as close to the real deal as you could come, the TV show only used '74 - '76 Torinos for filming and this includes a working police light and correct down to the 15" wheels. However, under the hood you'll find an engine that the duo from the famous TV show would have loved to have had slammed in the engine bay - A dual quad 428 Cobra Jet that is wildly fun to drive.
It starts with the body that features the correct Red and white paint scheme made famous by the Starsky and Hutch crime-fighting duo from the late 70's. It's definitely an older paint job, but shows very well despite its age. We love cars like this because if you glance at the underside, you'll see that this car hasn't been cut up or battling rust. It's just got some driver type flaws in the paint. But it's still a car that you would love to show off at your local car show scene. And it's in the condition today, that you could drive and enjoy it and not feel guilty about it.
However, the driveline is what separates this car from any other tv car out there. Pop the hood and you'll find a dual quad 428ci V8 slammed in the engine bay. The real tv cars received everything from 351's to 400s to a story where they slammed a 429 Lima motor in the engine bay after they blew up the original engine, but to the best of our knowledge, never did they have a 428 cobra jet. The engine has aluminum heads, dual electric fans, MSD biller distributor, MSD ignition, Holley 2x4bbl carbs, Ford SVO coil, Ford Motorsports SVO valve covers, Cobra air filter, power steering and power brakes to boot.
Underneath the car you've got a ridiculously solid floor that hasn't been molested. Bolted to the potent engine is a beefed up C6 auto transmission that sends power to a Ford 9" rear. Power is supplied to the pavement thanks to the correct 15" wheels that have been wrapped in new rubber.
Fresh off of a tuneup and carrying with it a working police light, this car is an absolute blast to look at and appreciate. But it's even better behind the wheel! Don't miss your chance to own this one-of-a-kind piece!
