This 1976 Gran Torino was built in Chicago near the time that the 1,000 S&H units were built, so it's a real close relative. Lewis purchased it in 2002 from a guy in Evansville, Wisconsin, and took it to its new home just across the river from Evansville, Indiana - how bizarre is that?

These new photos were sent in May of 2008 to show off the car's new back bumper. They were taken at a car show where Lewis' Torino was voted one of the top 125 cars out of, um, WAY more than 125 cars - Way to Go, Lewis! :-)

This is, as far as I know, the first Torino (at least on this web site) painted to be a replica of the car in the S&H TV show pilot. Lewis studied the DVD and got every detail right. Compared to the stripe on the TV series cars, this one's a little more narrow across the top, a little higher as it runs down the side, and stops short of the front. Lewis is a one-of-a-kind guy, so it's appropriate that he should be the first and only (for now) owner of a S&H Pilot Replica!

Lewis had this 351 Modified engine installed in the Spring of 2006. It's a Jasper crate engine, built right there in Evansville, Indiana. Lewis also upgraded to a 4 barrel 670 cfm Holley carb and had his transmission rebuilt. I'm told the car runs good and sounds GREAT!

Not long after our 2006 S&H Torino Reunion in Evansville IN / Henderson KY, Lewis had himself a little accident while avoiding a dog in the road. He ended up, a few months later, with a whole new paint job and some fresh body work, including that new back bumper I mentioned, and new quarter panels put on the car. Yes, you can buy them brand new, but they are designed for earlier model Torinos. A good body shop, though, can work some "magic" on them and make the modifications necessary to fit 1974-76 models.
