John loved S&H when he was a kid. He and his best friend would run around the neighborhood pretending to be "Starsky" and "Hutch" and catching the bad guys. He has always dreamed of owning a Torino like Starsky's. He had been kind of keeping an eye at various website "for sale" listings for the last 5 or 6 years and finally found this one just in time for his 50th birthday.

This factory-original S&H Gran Torino has bucket seats and the shifter is on the floor, original interior except for the steering wheel, and the original numbers-matching 351 Windsor engine. Other than air conditioning, it has all the features John was looking for.

This car was built on April, 13 1976 in Chicago and originally purchased in Elk River, Minnesota, in 1976. John bought it from Mike's Classic Cars in Blair, Nebraska in March of 2012. With his wife's support, John flew to Nebraska to see it after he found it online.

John says, "I have already had so much fun with this car. The attention it gets is crazy! Probably the best thing is taking it to car shows. I attended a few here in Texas, and got 3rd place in one of them. Talking to people about the car just makes my day. No one in this area has one. This car is a driver which is the way it should be. To have a car that you don't drive but just put on a trailer to take shows is a shame."

Other than rebuilding the engine, John hasn't had to do anything to the car, but he says it does need some work. He wants to have air conditioning installed next year, and hopes to to take it to Counts Customs in Las Vegas and have it customized with a new interior, bigger engine and transmission, engine and trunk detailing, and a fresh paint job.
