Re: My dream car, 1966 oldsmobile toronado.

What year? Probably not made of asbestos by the 90s.

Re: Asbestos products in a 1966 Toronado?

I bet the Ferraris had asbestos exhaust wrap. Truly , I don't think you'll have a problem. At least in the US, asbestos hasn't been used for a long time in anything. Brakes and those exhaust donuts are the only possible things I can think of that may have originally been made from the stuff and I do...

Re: Asbestos products in a 1966 Toronado?

I'm not aware of any asbestos used on '66 Toros. Brake linings and possibly the donuts in the exhaust manifold/header pipe connection may have originally contained asbestos but I seriously doubt you'll find a car with its original brakes and exhaust. Those items have been made from other materials f...

Re: My dream car, 1966 oldsmobile toronado.

I'm not aware of any asbestos being used on '66 Toros. Brake linings have long since gone to other materials and I doubt any car you find will have its factory brake shoes.

Re: new here with 66 toronado

Hopefully he'll be able to get the parts off his cars for you. He has a full time job and the Toro parts are just a hobby so He has to fit in the part removal to his schedule.

Everything I've gotten from him has been first rate, good quality parts.

Here is the section I was referring to rather than the Parts Wanted section.

Re: new here with 66 toronado

Here is my Toronado and my '56 Cadillac Coupe de Ville. I use them both as regular transportation. I don't own any modern vehicles.

Re: new here with 66 toronado

No new sheet metal is available as far as I'm aware. You'll have to make them yourself or salvage sheet metal from a rust free donor car. Go to the Parts Sources page on this forum and find the used parts you need. Where did you get that Toronado? Was it already over in Belgium somewhere? You may al...

Re: new here with 66 toronado

A nice Christmas present for yourself. You've got your work cut out for you.

You should get in touch with Harald Schoener in Germany. He recently finished restoring a '66 Toro and did a fantastic job. Pictures of his work are on this website.

I know where you can get windows, bumpers, body parts.
