Stunning ’73 Ford Gran Torino 351CJ Cleveland 4-Speed

1973 ford gran torino sport 4-speed

Looking at a car magazine 25 years ago, Tony Blaine came across this 1973 Ford Gran Torino Sport listing, and two days later brought it home. He shares that the 4-speed made him buy the 2-door Sportsroof Torino (my type of car guy) and of course with the manual tranny comes the 351CJ Cleveland engine rated at 246hp, which was not bad for 1973.

But, the 1973 Ford Gran Torino was not in this shape when Tony bought it, in fact he used 3 different cars to put this one together, which took him about 2 years. Best part of the story is that one of Tony’s daughters appreciates the classic car and it will become her ride very soon.
