Mike M's 1976 Ford Gran Torino is a S&H Replica made by Steve Casteel in Washington. It has a 351 Windsor engine and Cruise-O-Matic Automatic Transmission. Mike purchased his car from Steve in July, 2012 (one week after it was painted) and has been continuing to work on the finer details. Mike owned a 1973 Gran Torino Sport in college in the 1970s and hated to part with it in the 1980s. It was always his dream to own a 1976 S&H, or get a replica. Mike says, "Thanks to Steve for making my dream come true!"

Before getting the S&H makeover by Steve, this car was painted silver with a red interior! Most everything on the car is stock, built to "California" emissions standards. It had opera windows that Steve sealed over before painting it. The interior has been converted/dyed to black and has vintage mag wheels and tires. It has bucket seats (driver side is electric!) with the automatic shift on the steering column.

Mike has made more improvements including replacing all light bulbs in the instrument panel, new radiator, rebuilt carburetor, new carpet, new windshield, 1976 vintage license plates, new dual exhaust, and air shocks.

The AM radio still works, but Mike plans to add a CD or MP3 player hidden in the console, with new rear speakers, to play those '70s rock tunes when cruising to the drive-in!
