Re: German imported -66 headlight problem

Most of the vacuum hoses you see are from the Confortron (The A/C / heater system). The headlight plumbing is fairly simple. IIRC, one vacuum line going into the switch, two going out before being split into the two headlights canisters.

Good luck!

Re: 455 longevity

A well maintained and tuned 455 will last a very long time.

These old engines didn't have the benefit of a self-adjusting EFI system, positive crankcase ventilation or modern oils.

Re: Hello from Germany!

When I was at the vintage auto races at Road Atlanta, some guy took a bunch of photos of me driving around and put them on a website. A friend of mine just came across them by accident. The author obviously didn't know anything about Toronados but his pictures are good. http://www.car-revs-daily.co...

Re: Turn signals

The turn signal switch in a '66 is external, driven by a cable. It's very likely that the switch has been knocked out of alignment.

Re: Hello from Germany!

Fantastic photos! Were you able to remove the A/C / heater box with the fenders on?
