Re: Brand new Olds Toronado owner

That's nice. What brand timing set did you use?

Were you able to tell if that was the original timing set or had it been replaced before? If it was original, how was the nylon coating on the teeth? Had it begun flaking off?

Re: 1966 toro Lower door moulding clip

You might find one from a junkyard.
www.car-parts.com

Or, try Mr. G's Fasteners. If you have an old one you can match it up from his inventory or scan it and send him a picture.

Re: Hello from Germany!

40,963 built in '66.

There might be half of them left but that's just a guess.

There's no I way I know of to find out how many are registered in the USA. Each state registers vehicles and number plates are not assigned to cars for life. In most states, if not all, that data isn't publicly available.

Re: Brand new Olds Toronado owner

I'm a firm believer in the concept of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." If you think the engine is sufficiently worn that the head gaskets should be changed, then go ahead and do it. If the engine runs fine, leave it alone. TYiming chain set is another matter. GM used nylon coated sprocke...

I didn't know you had the beauty rings. Do you have any uncut ones left?

Well, tell them to have it inspected by someone in America for a full report. Don't want to buy a pig in a poke.

Re: SoCal Beauty

I think it probably is a DeLuxe since it has air conditioning and power windows, both of which came standard on the DeLuxe. It also has the DeLuxe interior. My car is a DeLuxe but the original buyer deleted both the a/c and the power windows. They'd pretty much let you do whatever you wanted back th...

Re: SoCal Beauty

Are you thinking about buying this car? It looks pretty nice but $25K is extremely high in my opinion, especially for an unrestored car. I'm a little skeptical of the "all original" claim too, since there are some things about the car which are not stock. The floor mat looks nice but its m...
