Not a mustang...but a 71
#1
Beautiful day here in Calgary. The Torino is a one previous owner I was fortunate enough to acquire in 2005. Drive like a new (71) car.

Sweet, is the stripe original ?  How about some drive train specs.

A beautiful car. I do love 70-71 Torinos. A convertible GT is a rare thing. Chuck

M code, automatic. Definitely a cruiser not a stoplight warrior.
The stripes came in four possible colours: blue, yellow, red, green, and are a different size in 70 and 71.
Looked over the years to find a matching grabber blue/white Ranchero, but have never found one. The ones I have found all black interior.

Had a 70 GT fastback back in the late 90s/ early 2000s, White with red laser stripes, maroon bucket interior. H-code auto that I intended to swap to a 429/4spd. Had just the right options with A/C, PDB and PS. Life got in the way and I traded it for the paint work on my 71 Mach. I always say people that complaint about visibility in a 71-73 Mustang sportsroof have never experienced a 70-71 Torino sportsroof.

I'd love to get another one, but they're getting to the point where I wouldn't want to pay that much for one. I'll probably get myself a 69-71 LTD or Marquis for a comfy cruiser.

Extremely cool Torino! I learned to drive in my dads 71 m code GT. A friend of mine recently finished this 71 429cj 4 spd. factory a/c, It has a beautiful un-buffed single stage black paint job. Always been a Toronto fan.

+1 on the Torinos. Always thought that those stripes would look good on Mustangs.
