Consignment # 5559
1968 Ford Torino GT Fastback
Final Bid: $ 11,275.00 - Monterey 2004
An unrestored, all-original survivor, this car is prime example of American muscle in the late sixties. A perfect car for someone looking for an unmolested classic.


The car is equipped with a 390 2 bbl. and C6 column-shift auto (just rebuilt with a heavy-duty converter). Interior is in amazing, all-original condition. The factory plastic from the rear seat-belts was never removed! All chrome is excellent save for the bumpers which could use a re-chroming. All glass is excellent. All trim is excellent. The original spare tire is still in place in the extremely clean trunk with original trunk mat. You can still see the factory paint daubs on the under side of the trunk lid! The original wheels with original GT center caps are wrapped around brand new “Diamond Back Classics” Redline radials for a period correct look. The original paint still shines, but has some flaws in the form of miscellaneous nicks and scratches, nothing major. The floors and frames are rust-free and solid.


I purchased the car from the 3rd owner in 2002 with 69,000 original miles. I have used the car as daily transportation since and have tacked on another 16,000 miles. I have the original build sheet, owners cards (temporary and permanent) and various Ford literature that came with the car. I even have the business card of the salesman that sold the car to the original owner.


The only non-original parts on the car are regular maintenance items and the center section from the rear end. I replaced it about a two months ago, but still have the rebuildable original that will go with the car. The car was recently shot for an upcoming issue of Hemming’s Muscle Machines that will feature it as a prime example of an unrestored driver.
