Imagine a world where front-wheel drive is considered revolutionary. Better yet, imagine a world where front-wheel drive is considered a luxury. Pretty crazy, right? Especially in a market where front-wheel drive is the norm, and most luxury brands produce exclusively rear and all-wheel drive super sedans. That world you're imagining, it probably looks a lot like GM Design's E-Body studios in the late-1950s. And the car you envisioned would be Oldsmobile's bold Toronado.

Bear in mind, cars like this incredible, 28,382-mile Toronado aren't the drowsy, beige econoboxes most car enthusiasts have come to loathe. Like the Cords that came before them, they were considered the pinnacle of contemporary luxury, and, as such, were equipped accordingly. This mostly-original classic features Oldsmobile's legendary 455 cubic inch Rocket V8, GM's innovative Turbo-Hydramatic 425 3-speed, and stunning green aesthetics that simply ooze '60s cool. And what's better, all this prize eccentricity can be yours for the cost of a modern compact car!

GREEN-ON-GREEN, ON GREEN… ON GREEN

Enjoyed by two enthusiasts for 48 of its 50 years, this unexampled classic began life in the warm embrace of Palm Springs, California, where it was stored under a carport at its owner's second home. Driven sparingly, and maintained meticulously, the car was eventually traded to a Cadillac dealer in late 1996. Fast-forward two years, and the second of those long-term owners picked up a dream cruiser that was the exact same color combo his dad had owned. At that point, the car was still an untouched survivor, but years of fun in the sun had begun to take its toll. So, circa 2012, the owner decided to contract Reflections Paint and Body Shop of Mint Hill, North Carolina for a full respray of Oldsmobile's lively Meadow Green Metallic pigment. As you can tell from our high resolution photos, a full roster of original trim was polished and reinstalled. A correct Green roof is present and accounted for, and green pinstriping adds just the right amount of hard-edge sophistication.

Perhaps the respray was fair trade for the car keeping much of its highly-original interior. Just look at all that awesome cloth and vinyl! Most Toronado buyers took optimal advantage of the model's unique flat floor design by ordering big bench seats like these. At the sides of those thrones, long doors, stretched for easy access to the rear seats, center crack-free panels on factory power windows and power door locks. A wood-trimmed dash centers a cool slot machine-style speedometer above factory air conditioning and a factory AM/FM radio. The driver spins a Rim Blow Steering Wheel around GM's trick telescopic column. And behind the passengers, a vacuum-actuated trunk is clean all the way down to its original cardboard jack box.

UNITIZED POWER PACKAGE

Dubbed the Unitized Power Package, this Toronado's revolutionary drivetrain layout was tested 1.5 MILLION miles before it ever hit production. In fact, the engineering was so good that it was ultimately adopted by other GM divisions, including GMC, which used the set-up whole-stock for their unique motorhomes. In this application, and GMC's motorhomes, UPP consists of a big block Oldsmobile engine that's paired to a smooth Turbo-Hydramatic 425 3-speed. Since this Toronado is a highly desirable 1969 model, it sports “the biggest block alive” – a 455 cubic inch Rocket V8. And, since the car is about as close as it gets to a full-on survivor, that mill stretches Silver Blue paint over a correct 396021F casting number. There's a nice mix of aesthetic detail and reliable functionality, with vivid decals reflecting things like pliable belts and fresh hoses. And factory air conditioning is a welcome addition to an already cool package.

This Oldsmobile's Turbo-Hydramatic 425 3-speed is substantial technology in its own right. Utilizing many of the same internal components as GM's stalwart Turbo-Hydramatic 400, it's easy to rebuild and plenty reliable. That gearbox drives GM's first subframe chassis, which benefits from factory power steering and power-assisted disc and drum brakes. Factory true-dual exhaust gets consolidated into a correct transverse muffler and slim resonators. And everything rolls on stainless-capped steelies, which spin 15-inch Cooper Trendsetter whitewalls that likely replaced original Toronado-Front-Drive tires Firestone developed specifically for this application.

If you're looking for an honest, unrelentingly cool cruiser that'll turn heads wherever you point it, it's hard to beat this solid Toronado. These coupes occupy a unique corner of the collector car hobby, and are becoming increasingly hard to find, especially in this condition.
