1967 Oldsmobile Toronado

Lot No. 179

Auctioned on Thursday, August 1, 2013

Sold for $ 1,650

  • 425-cid, 385-hp OHV V-8 engine, three-speed automatic transmission
  • Black Plate California car
  • A solid restoration candidate


Chassis no. 396877M607531

425-cid, 385-hp OHV V-8 engine, three-speed automatic transmission, coil spring independent front suspension, rigid rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs and four-wheel power hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 119-inches

Radical in its day, Oldsmobile’s Toronado demonstrated that large engines and front-wheel drive are not incompatible.

While somewhat disheveled at first glance, this Olds Toronado is better than it looks. Although the paint has some ominous rust spots, the vinyl roof is tight and firm, needing only a good scrubbing. The Deluxe vinyl interior has no tears, wear or failed stitches, and the brown carpet should clean up well. The engine compartment and undercarriage are both unrestored and soiled, but should respond to concerted detailing. Equipped with power steering, power brakes, power windows, air conditioning and cruise control, this car could be a sleeper.
