Up For sale is this 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado Coupe. This car was initially purchased for a private collection in 1966 and was driven sporadically until it was parked and sat in 1971. This car last saw the road in 1979 when registration was not renewed. The car was brought to my attention two years ago after the family sold their house and the vehicle wound up at a storage facility in Orange county NY. To my amazement the car started ran and drove with fresh gas, and all new fluids, filters and plugs/wires. I know very little about the car other than it was last registered and on the road in 1979, and the family claims it had been in their garage since the owner (family member) perished. The car has NO RUST anywhere, its very clean. The body has no repairs other than dings and a scuff prior to repaint. The quarter panels floor pans and all of the metal is original. The chrome is original and in great condition with exception of one dent (pictured) and minor pitting in some spots. The headlights work intermittently, I am unsure of how to go about fixing them so I did not attempt to repair them. The lights turn on but don't pop up all of the time. The car received new tires because it sat on the original tires which did not hold air when it was brought to me. The car did not run when I was called to prepare it for the sale. The car was towed to a garage where all of the fluids were flushed and replaced, new plugs and wires were installed and new tires were put on. The car started and ran great! No smoking, compression and internals are great. we did NOT replace any parts on the engine suspension, drivetrain transmission etc. The engine and The transmission are in great shape it shifts well, the car runs and drives excellent (better than my 2006). the interior received new carpets (old carpets were dirty and stained from years) the driver side of the seat had a piece repaired (upholstery shop) Everything else is unmolested. The gauges all work, the AM radio and speakers work, all of the windows roll up and down! The blowers and fans/vents all work! This car starts up and drives great, very quiet and drives like it should. The miles on the odometer read 5,987 however I do NOT know if they are original or not. The car was only on the road 10 years and sat for over 30+ years. The interior of the engine looks clean, the frame and floor pans are excellent! The doors close snug and perfectly. I Bought the car in 2012. There was nothing replaced on the outside or interior. Just the fluids/filters, paint, carpets, plugs/wires, tires and brakes. It still has the original exhaust system and lines. This car is as close to original as it gets. Nothing in the engine compartment was painted, it even still has the original under the hood cover, and decals. This car starts and runs excellent every time. I do not have the owners manuals, however I do the the title from 1978 (last title issued). any picture requests OR questions are welcomed. The car is in excellent shape.
