Re: 67 Toranado Rescue

That steering wheel is from a 1966 Toronado. In really nice shape the car would be probably be worth $15-$20k. There have been some completely restored, perfect examples that have sold in the $30s recently. If you're doing the work yourself it's probably worth the effort. Check the rear frame rails ...

Nice. Are those real wire wheels?

Where in Michigan are you? I have friends in Dearborn/Wayne Co. and another in Plymouth and one in Grand Rapids.

Re: New member, bought another Toronado, after 32 years...

That's pretty nice.

Have you turned over the engine yet? Oil in the spark plug holes, etc?

Glad there's no vinyl top.

Re: German imported -66 headlight problem

Yes. All '66 Toronados have the same transmission. TH425.

It's essentially the same transmission used across the GM lines known as the TH400. The difference is that it's cut into two pieces in order to lay next to the engine and driven by a chain off the back of the crankshaft.

Re: 67 Toro Rear Window Drain Outlet Caps

I made my own drain tubes from radiator hoses. Fusick sells the hard tubes but they're expensive. I don't think the drain tubes had plugs or one way valves.

Re: Need info on wheel bearings 72 Toro (Revcon motorhome)

Right, I know. I'm just suggesting calling Jim at applied GMC because, like the Revcon, the GMC motorhome utilizes the Toronado drive train. He's an expert on the Toro parts and I think he works on Revcon's as well.

Re: Transmission leak 1966 Toronado

I'm not sure what you mean by deflector. Are you talking about the plastic splash guards or some part of the transmission?
