ISO 1970 or 1971 Torino or Cyclone 351C-4V car
I thought I'd try a "Wanted" post to find a car. I've enjoyed classic and vintage FoMoCo products from all of the divisions for the past 35-plus years, but when I moved to Phoenix, I sold the '63 Galaxie 500XL convertible I had.
I really miss not having a collector car to tinker with and to drive to shows or just for fun. My first restoration many years ago was a 1971 Torino with an "M" code 351C-4V. I've had several other 351C cars, and I love 'em!
I'd like to find a 1970 or 1971 Torino or Cyclone with the "M" engine, 4-speed would be awesome, but an auto trans is great, too. Other options like power disc brakes, power steering, and A/C are mandatory (I live in Arizona!) and extras like console, power windows, rim blow steering wheel, AM-FM, Magnums, or model-specific options like factory tachometer, ram air, or ralley wheels would be icing on the cake.
I'd prefer a car with NOM drivetrain and mostly stock (correct components like carburetor, distributor, radiator, etc.), but headers or an aluminum radiator wouldn't be a deal breaker.
I'm very flexible as to color choices, both inside and out, and a car that really only requires a little work, or none at all, to be a good runner, drives well, and looks beautiful.
Do you have a car like this that you'd like to sell or maybe you know someone who does? I'd appreciate hearing from you.
Please send a PM and some photos and a brief description along with your phone number on the first correspondence. Thanks for any help you can provide.
I'm looking forward to seeing what cars are available and to finally getting another muscle Ford or Merc back in my garage.
