Description

You cannot completely understand Ford Gran Torino without watching Clint Eastwood`s movie Gran Torino. It is a drama showing how a particular car can be the centerpiece of a someone`s live. It is a movie displaying respect, dignity, revenge and consistency. These are just a few reasons to be in love with this Ford Gran Torino photo art.

The automotive soul will find the end of the Gran Torino movie as the most touching part. This is the moment when the last will and the testament of the Eastwood character are red. He left nothing to his family but gave away his house to the local church. The carefully looked after Gran Torino was given to his Hmong neighbor with only one condition – not to modify the car at any cost and to preserve it in its original look.

Ford Gran Torino art

You probably didn’t know but Torino name was among the 7 considered by Ford when they had to name their first pony car. They opt for the Mustang name. Torino was used a little bit later when Ford execs decided to create an upscale version of their midsize sedan Fairlane. This car also got some big ol` American V8 engines which turned it into a proper muscle car. From 1972 such versions were called Gran Torino. You`ll recognize them by their killer whale-like front and the chrome rounded headlights. The `72 Ford Gran Torino was the exact car featured in the Eastwood movie.

The cinema & TV fame didn’t deplete with the Eastwood movie. It was also featured in the Fast & Furious film and the 74 – 76 body style was popularized by the Starsky and Hutch TV series. Their collectability was focused mainly on the 70 – 71 Torino Cobras, the 69 Torino Taladega, the 1970 King Cobra and the 68 – 71 Torino GT Convertible. Unfortunately, not many examples survived in proper condition. Ford Torino and Gran Torino had issues with rust often suffered from corrosion just 5 years from brand new. To worsen the corrosion issues, Torinos built between 1969 and 1973 had severe paint peeling problem. As a result, this car had the lowest resale value of any American midsize car in the 70`s used car market.
