Re: 66 sway bar trouble

Check with ADDCO suspension.

I bought a 1 1/8" diam anti sway bar for my 1956 Cadillac from them to replace the original 3/4" one. What a difference in handling for the better.

I'd caqll them rather than looking online.

Re: 66 sway bar trouble

I actually took my old parts to Advance Auto and bought a performance kit off the rack that was as close to the original as possible. Here's what Moog has but they look like the tall ones you described. https://www.moogparts.com/find-my-part/find-my-part-results.html?parttype=&apptype=AUTOMOTIVE...

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.
