Gateway Classic Cars of Fort Lauderdale is excited to present this rare 1971 Ford Torino GT Convertible.

The Marti Report certifies this Torino as 1 of only 13 with M Code 351, C-6 transmission, and Color/Trim Options.

This Super rare Torino GT Convertible with highly desirable options is freshly and fully restored. Ford only produced 1,613 Torino GT Convertibles in 1971.

***Marti Report states 1 of 13 with specific paint and trim Options.

*** 1 of 262 with the High Compression 351 M-code Cleveland engine and 4V closed chambered heads.

*** 1 of 164 with factory white paint #1619-A. Originally an extremely rare factory triple white car, that has been restored to factory white with new black top and interior.

*** 1 of only 30 cars ordered from 43 Milwaukee DSO.

*** Rarer still, Factory installed Select-Shift C-6 Automatic transmission. Heavy-duty trans almost never seen with 351’s.

Prior to a fresh restoration, this was a complete running well-kept car. Just completed extensive two-year, no expense spared highly detailed professional restoration to stock factory condition, with the addition of some very popular chrome engine and bolt on aftermarket parts for modern drivability, reliability, higher performance, enhanced driver comfort, and show car appeal. This GT performs much better than the day it left the factory, without permanently effecting originality. Can be return to 100% stock in a weekend.

During the meticulous restoration everything, including the entire drive train, was disassembled and properly restored, show quality re-chromed, and professionally polished to factory condition. Current odometer reading approx. 36,000. Documentation shows this was only driven 3,000 miles in last 12 years. This Torino has only been driven few test miles since complete engine and transmission rebuild to ensure all is fresh and working perfectly. Best suited for a serious collector wanting a great investment that is sure to increase. Dependable enough to drive daily, or gently as a weekend warrior.

The "351 Cleveland" is generally considered a high-performance engine. However, the truth is 92% of North American 351C engines were basic, 2V, low-compression, medium horsepower engines. Only 8% of all Ford cars came equipped with this high-performance M- Code 351 Cleveland engine with 4V carbureted configuration. (NADA adds 25% price premium for this option.)

This GT being offered for sale possesses the correct factory block with casting DOAE-L and casting date “1D21”. This is the real deal conservatively rated from the factory with 285 HP. However, it is now completely rebuilt using high performance internal components, by renowned Ford engine builder. This torque monster is now rated over 425 HP and designed to run modern unleaded fuel. It always starts, idles, and runs well with amazing bravado.

***Correct factory heads identified by "4*" casting and eight bolt valve covers. These closed chamber (quench) style cylinder heads w large exhaust valves give very high flow capacity and are the real trick to the engine's performance. With 10.7:1 high compression and monstrous free breathing ports, 61.3-64.3 cc combustion chambers, 2.198" intake valves and 1.715 exhaust valves.

An article in Super Stock and Drag Illustrated tested a Torino equipped with the 370 HP 429 CJ, C-6 automatic, stated "this car would really respond to a good ignition system, a better intake manifold, a larger carburetor and a set of headers." This convertible GT’s restorers took their sage advice and kept the car mostly stock but installed these high-performance upgrades and a bit more, detailed below.

1972 Ford LTD Brougham

1972 Ford LTD Brougham

Engine: 400 CID V8
Transmission: 3 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 49,948 ( actual )

Now available in our Dallas-Showroom is this luxurious 1972 Ford LTD. LTD’s are great mixture of luxury, comfort, & power, which was the goal when introduced by Ford all the way back in 1965. This is because it has enough room to seat 5-6 comfortably, yet still enough power to zip around. 1972 models were virtually the same as the '71s, although the bumper now stretched across the lower section of the grille. A new rear bumper integrated the taillights; also, in the rear, the design of the trunk lid was squared off. Due to decreased demand in the segment, 1972 was the final model year for the LTD convertible. This LTD is painted a beautiful baby-blue, with an original top, which remains in very good shape, especially when you consider its age. The interior also appears to be original cloth in good shape, with paisley designs on the lower-half, which was very popular choice back in the early-mid 70’s. All this is powered around by 400-V8 2 Barrel motor/ 3-speed automatic, that gives you plenty of power to haul around a full set of passengers or speed around alone. Finally, my favorite part to this vehicle, as all this sets on fancy set of white-wall tires and Ford Motor Company wheels, with a crown in the center, marking this vehicle is fit for a King or Queen. Is that you? For additional information on this 1972 Ford LTD, email us at or call 817-310-9400.

1972 Ford Thunderbird

1972 Ford Thunderbird

Engine: 460 CID V8
Transmission: 4-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 11,218 ( undocumented )

This beautiful 1972 Ford Thunderbird is now available for sale in our Milwaukee showroom. You’ll love the 460 cubic inch big block engine coupled to the 3-speed automatic transmission, the white exterior and black leather interior. This T-Bird comes with cruise control, power brakes, power steering, and radial tires. Aside from the redesign itself, the 1972 Thunderbird represented a simplification of body styles. Instead of the three body styles (landau, two-door and four-door hardtops) offered for the 1971 model year, Thunderbird was pared down to a single two-door hardtop model line. Externally, many components were common with the Continental Mark IV, the primary differences being the front and rear body panels. The prominent “beak” of 1971 was toned down while the sequential turn signals seen since 1965 were deleted for cost reasons. Aside from the dashboard, the interior was also shared with the Mark IV. Instead of the square gauges used by the Mark IV, Thunderbirds used round dials for the speedometer, fuel gauge, and clock. To the driver’s left were the climate control controls and the light controls; to the right were the radio controls, wiper controls, and information center. This dash layout would remain through the 1979 model year. This 1972 Ford Thunderbird is for sale in our Milwaukee Showroom and can be seen at; call (262) 891-4253 or email us at for additional information. See more at:
