Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to offer this sharp 1971 Ford Torino GT. TRUE TORINO GT, FACTORY A/C, CORRECT COLOR CODES, BELIEVED ORIGINAL DRIVETRAIN.

This 1971 Ford Torino GT has a true vintage vibe inside and out. And even the V8 under the hood is believed to be the stock unit. All this is exceptionally desirable, because it’s part of a short run of intimidating coupes direct from Ford.

The 1971 Torino is part of a very short two-year generation that gave us one of the coolest-looking blue ovals ever to hit the streets. The front end was more angular and meaner than a Chevelle, and the rear has a long fastback profile. They recessed the rear window and trunk so that air could flow to the well-integrated spoiler. While this was done to make a good NASCAR contender, it just looked absolutely cool on the street version. And speaking of speedy style, the hood scoop and full-length Laser stripes really give this GT car that added amount of performance distinction. It’s such a great classic hardtop, that were happy they kept this one looking so stock. The form-fitting chrome bumpers, factory wheel covers, correct badging, and a respray of the correct Light Pewter Metallic all come together to deliver a time capsule look.

Inside is more of that great vintage appearance. The factory-correct black interior looks sharp against the exterior silver, and it has the right classic style, right down to the textured inserts in the seats. Ford knew how to build a big car that offered plenty of space, and at the same time, still kept the driver in mind. That’s why the dash is really focused on you. The dual spoke steering wheel gives a clear view to the all the essentials that’s right in front of the driver. This is everything from the ultra-wide speedometer to the heat/defrost control panel (provisions for A/C, too.) The only upgrade you’ll really be able to spot in this time capsule is the AM/FM/cassette digital tuner stereo. But that’s the kind of upgrade we understand. After all, when you roll down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop and go for a Sunday drive, you want to be able to pick the right music, too.

Under the hood is Ford’s robust 351 cubic-inch V8. Not only is this believed to be the original motor to the car, but also it run with the kind of strength that really lets you know it has been well-respected. And it’s easy to enjoy this coupe on the road thanks to easy driving features like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front.
