For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado. This would be the first American made mass produced front wheel drive automobile and what a car! Power comes from a 425 cubic inch V8 producing 385 horsepower and 475 lbs/ft of torque! That's quite an entrance for a front wheel drive car. Power is transferred to the front wheels via a TH-425 automatic transmission. This was very close the TH-400 and was found to be very durable. Something different for consumers was the flat floor being there was no need for a transmission tunnel or a hump for the driveshaft. This along with the fastback styled rear end made for a very futuristic styled car. The Toronado was an instant success for Oldsmobile and production continued until 1992 when it was replaced by the Oldsmobile Aurora.
This 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado is powered by its original 425 cubic inch V8 and is painted in a very catchy color named Tropic Turquoise Metallic with a matching interior color. Pop up headlights, white wall radial tires, Power windows, Power brakes, Power steering and A/C make this a great cruising car and a hit at almost any car show. The car received a frame on restoration 2 years ago. The car was taken down to bare metal which required removing all trim, weather stripping and window felt. The car was so solid that no metal replacement was needed. During the restoration the interior received new carpet, front seat upholstery using NOS material. The rear seat, headliner and door panels are original. Other work includes a new windshield, rebuilt vacuum headlights, battery, alternator, voltage regulator, rebuilt original Quadra jet carburetor, complete new exhaust, rebuilt AM radio, the clock was converted to quartz for more accurate movement and all new brakes. The brakes were converted to dual circuit from the single circuit for safety. Included with the sale of this beautiful car is the original Protect-O-Plate, owner's manuals and showroom literature.
