1968 Ford

Torino

The 1968 Torino was introduced by Ford as the new upscale series of the Fairlane. The car was part of the intermediate line and used the previous year's wheelbases of 116 in and 113 in for the 2-and 4-door models, and station wagon models, respectively.

The Torino was top-of-the-line for the Fairlanes and was available in a 2-door hardtop, 4-door sedan, and Squire station wagon. Lastly, the "Torino GT" included a hardtop, sportsroof, and convertible.

The Torino model featured full colour-keyed carpeting, additional exterior and interior trim, and Torino crests on the 'C' pillar.

The Torino GT included bucket seats and a console, special name plaques, and exterior trim, GT markings on wheel covers, and courtesy lights on the inside door panels. The GT was available with an upgraded suspension package that included heavy-duty shocks and springs, and thick anti-roll bars.

All models came standard the 200ci Fairlane Six, except the GT, which came standard with the 302ci 1x2bbl V8. A 427 was originally listed in brochure, but no cars received this engine. A 428 was released later in the year.

The Torino proved successful with 172,083 units being produced. The car was well received by the press and a '68 GT convertible was selected as the '68 Indy 500 pace car.
