No. Unleaded gas is fine. Contrary to popular belief, unleaded gas isn't anything new. AMOCO super unleaded "white gas" was introduced in 1923.

I've been using my '56 Cadillac for 15 years as a daily driver with no ill effects. Same for the Toronado since I bought it. If you ever have to do a valve job or rebuild the engine, you may as well have hardened valve seats installed but don't worry about it.
