Oldsmobile Toronado 1966 Description

Up for auction is a 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado. I want to start off by saying that this is my boyfriends car. I am selling it for him while he is in Florida. I do not know much about this car other than what he has told me, so if you have any questions please ask. If I do not have the answer I can contact him to get you one. He told me that this 1966 Toronado is the deluxe edition. He had two 1966 Toronado's but sold one a few years ago and kept this one. It has been sitting in our garage fora little over a year andnow isin our driveway covered with a car cover. The odometer reads 770249.Theengine is free and starts up fine, but has not been started in a while. Whoever starts it will need to empty the old gas out and put new gas in before starting.It has many power features like power windows, mirrors, and seats. When he purchased it someone had already upgraded a few things. He also made a few upgrades himself. It has a 425 Oldsmobile Rocket V8 engine. The engine has an HEI distributer, newer plugs and wires, fuel pump, oil filter, fuel filter, and air intake manifold. The engine has a Edelbrock 1407 manual chokecarburetor and manual choke is installed. The engine features a chrome water neck, chrome valve covers, and chrome throttle kit.It also has a Edelbrockchrome air intake with ahigh performance green air filter. The air filteris about 4". My boyfriends says that the engine has anewer power booster that is about 5 years old.The radiator fluid sits a little low, but thereare no leaks. Like I said the car has been sitting in our garage and now our driveway and I have never seen any oil marks on the concrete or anyother fluidleaks.All the seals for fluids appear to be in good condition. Thecar does have a newer battery but again has been sittingunusedfor about 2 years, so may need to be charged.The carhas really good compressionand torque. My boyfriend believes that someone whoowned the car before him re-bore the engine to give it more horsepower. He said that the engine on this Toronadoseemed stronger andfaster than that the other one he had owned, but he did not test or use a caliper toverifythis.He said there is a small electrical drain. He believes that the little light under the dash stays on. The breaks on the front have been upgraded to disk breaks, but the back brakes are drum. There is a prop block & die adjuster in the engine to fine tune the breaks. He said when driving the breaks felt a little soft, but was not uncomfortable and felt safe driving it. The tires are older and probably need replaced soon. The cardoes need some body work, but overall is pretty intact. The doors shut good, but the driver side door is missing the handle and some of the hardware. Most of it if not all is still in the car on the seats. He also has some smaller parts that are wrapped in plastic wrap on the dash. The drivers side window is out but the glass for it is sitting in the backseat. He believes it may need the linkage device thatconnects the windowto the door.The interior lights in the back are intact, but one is missing the plastic cover. The other one has the plastic cover but is missing half of it. It appears to have broken off at some point. The interior upholstery is in fairly good condition. There is some wear to the front seats; mainly the drivers side seat. The door on the drivers side also has some wear to the material.My boyfriend had painted this car black with a red racing stripe. Itwas blue once before though and the bluepaint can be seen in some areas where the painthas worn away.I have taken several pictures of this car, so please take a look for yourself. What you see is what you get. The car comes with a cleartitle and is signed by my boyfriend. It is an Illinois state title.In 1966 theToronado was the car of the year. This is a great classic vintagecar. I have never driven it myself, but I have ridden in it while by boyfriend drove. It was a lot of fun to hear the engine roar andfeel the power the car had whilesitting in the passengersseat. It definitely is a great car to own. We are moving to Florida however, and my boyfriend does not want to transport it there. This would be a great car for a collector or anyone that enjoys working on vintage automobiles.
