Derek P.'s '76 Dealer Replica
"Starsky & Hutch®" Gran Torino
This is a dealer S&H 1976 Torino Gran Torino -
meaning the dealer added the stripe to a standard
Gran Torino to sell it as a "Starsky & Hutch type" car.
That was a common practice, and prompted Ford to release
the Limited Production Starsky and Hutch Torinos
(for more information, see the Fairlaner article)
Derek's Dad bought this Torino from the dealer in '76
and gave it to Derek for his 16th birthday!
It originally came with Magnum 500 wheels and
351M backed by a C6 transmission. It now has a rebuilt
351 Cleveland with an FMX transmission.
