Evaluation: Freshly restored and lightly run engine bay. Paint looks very good from a distance but reveals prep issues up close with a lot of small blisters, particularly on the tail. Clean, tight roof vinyl. New-looking wheels. Very good interior. Tired chrome that looks original and stands out on an otherwise lovely car. An eye-catching Gran Torino that is plenty good enough for what it is.
Bottom Line: Later Grand Torinos look great and are more comfortable than most classic muscle cars, but they aren’t particularly fast or particularly valuable. This price, then, was surprisingly high.
