Hello from the workshop

Postby Claas » Sat Feb 04, 2017 2:09 am

Hello all,

greetings from Germany. I just became a Toronado owner last year. A 1967 Toronado with bucket seats and disk breaks up front.
It got badly cared for in the past decades but this is coming to an end now :D
At the moment I am disassembling it. It needs a complete rebuild from the scratch and I have given me 5 years due to time and money restrictions.
Although I am discovering more and more problems or how I call them "challenges" I still cannot wait to see it in the original beauty again.
I am really gratefull for discovering your community and you will understand that I might come up with a lot of questions over the next years when you see the pictures of my beauty below. :lol:

Regards
Claas

I think that it's in a great condition! I would like to know how high was the price of this car? Have fun with a renovation!
To want to, is to be able to.

There are a few rather big holes in the floor but it should be manageable.

I actually paid 4000 € for the car. looking at it now it was a bit too much.
