Yes, I am the proud owner of a 1966 toronado! From Belgium with some rust issues but when I am finished with this car it will be amazing :-) Missing some parts like side windows, decklid and some other small things... But I will find them and make this car awesome... Also proud owner of a 1964 Jetstar 88 convertible...

Will post pics, but first figure out how this works...

From Holland, Wim

A nice Christmas present for yourself. You've got your work cut out for you.

You should get in touch with Harald Schoener in Germany. He recently finished restoring a '66 Toro and did a fantastic job. Pictures of his work are on this website.

I know where you can get windows, bumpers, body parts.

Thanks Wim

No new sheet metal is available as far as I'm aware. You'll have to make them yourself or salvage sheet metal from a rust free donor car.

Go to the Parts Sources page on this forum and find the used parts you need.

Where did you get that Toronado? Was it already over in Belgium somewhere?

Bought it here in Holland, but it is assembled in Antwerpen Belgium, that is wat the VIN plate says... Thanks for the tip for parts, I will ask for it in the parts wanted section. It is a the Deluxe version with everything elelectrical, I am almost finished with restoring a 59 dodge, the Olds will be the next..
This is my other Olds..

That's nice. Is that the Dodge under the tarp?

Here is my Toronado and my '56 Cadillac Coupe de Ville. I use them both as regular transportation. I don't own any modern vehicles.

Here is the section I was referring to rather than the Parts Wanted section.

viewforum.php?f=42

John Dorcey has 50 parts cars that you might be able to get the windows and trunk lid from.
