The Oldsmobile Toronado had a distinctive styling change from the first generation Toronados. The former GT design was turned into a luxury car more similar to the Cadillac Eldorado and the Buick Rivera. This new look attracted so many new buyers that sales increased quite a bit. The Toronado now sported an elegant look with lots of spirit. Upscale styling and powerful performance now went hand in hand.
In 1972, due to Federally mandated and more strict emission controls, the 455 CID engine was now dropped to a 250 HP. But that does not hurt the car performance wise.
This 1972 Oldsmobile Toronado Brougham is quite a collector car. It is an outstanding HPOF (Historical Preservation Original Features) Award Winner. You will not find many authentic, unmolested, original classic cars such as this. This Olds has only 50,000 original miles.
Exterior is Sierra Gold with a white vinyl top. The paint, the vinyl top, and the chrome and trim are all in excellent condition. Tires are new Cokers with a 1.5 inch white trim.
The Brougham interior features a soft beige vinyl that is very luxurious and designed in a hand buttoned tufted style with both front and rear center folding armrests. The interior is in excellent condition.
America was always in love with the Rocket V8 engine (original to this car) with its 455 CID/250 HP. The automatic Hydra-Matic transmission is also original. This car is of course, matching numbers.
Features and accessories include power disc/drum brakes, power steering, dual exhaust, flow through ventilation, remote control outside mirror, front seat head restraints, electric clock, power windows, power door locks, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, power front seats, cruise control, automatic head lamp control.. this car is loaded with options!
This is a great collector car, especially a rare one as Oldsmobile no longer is in production, and, only 48,900 models for the 1972 year were produced.
Car resides in South Carolina and it is available to serious buyers for viewing by appointment. Owner will consider trades, especially for a late 1960-early 1970's Mustang convertible.
