In Episode 2 of Season 9, the guys at Roadkill take a Ford Torino Wagon that is powered by a gigantic Cummins 6BT inline-6 under the hood… well… actually, it doesn’t have a hood. Anyway, the guys at Roadkill didn’t build it, but they did drag race it against another Cummins swapped classic American body-on-frame thing. You can find the episode on streaming on the Motortrend App, or you can watch this low-res bootleg version before it gets taken down. Anyway, that same Torino is now offered with the Cummins diesel and offered for sale. Find this 1972 Ford Torino Wagon offered for $9000 in La Habra, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

Pininfarina would never have designed a car where the rear quarter panels are larger than two zip codes, but the Torino was designed in Detroit, a city where […]
The Torino model was an interesting piece of Ford’s late 60s/early 70s history with twists in the use of the Torino badge and if you blink, you might be completely lost when you open your eyes and see a pavement pounding muscle car. Find this 1971 Ford Torino GT here on eBay bidding for $14,100 […]
1968 was a year of profound changes around the world– LBJ declined to run for president and Richard M Nixon is elected, public opinion on the Vietnam war flip-flops, Yale University announces it will admit women, and Ford releases the Torino as a high end version of their mid-sized Fairlane sedan.
