Hello from Germany!

Postby Jelonek » Mon Nov 13, 2017 12:10 pm

I am waiting for my 1966 Toronado to arrive inGermany. It is somewhere over the ocean at the moment in a container :cry: we are excited and looking forward to receiving our golden beauty. I do not know the exact technical condition and condition of chassis but I hope it is good. We are looking forward to working together with you on any questions that might evolve!
Photos will follow!

Congratulations! There seem to be a few Toronados in Germany. Look through this site. A guy named Harald in Germany has posted extensive pictures of his restoration of a 1966 Toronado. He might be able to help you with parts sources in Europe.

Here is a thread with a lot of information.

Get a 1966 Oldsmobile Chassis Service Manual on ebay. Get a hard copy, not a CD.

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=1 ... l&_sacat=0

www.RockAuto.com has mechanical parts.

http://www.Fusick.com has some Toronado-specific parts

http://www.appliedgmc.com can help you with power train parts and advice. It's a GMC RV place but the RVs use the Toronado engine, trans, and final drive.
