Starsky's Torino

Starsky's Torino

Inspiration: Starsky and Hutch
Class: Replica
Base: 1974 Ford Gran Torino
Location: Aurora, CO
Car Owner: Joe Peifer

This car started out as a forest green Brougham model with little side windows a hood ornament and rear fender skirts.Lucky for me the previous owner had the good sense to convert it to a Starsky and Hutch replica.  After 30 some years of wanting this famous car I found it listed on Ebay in 2008, with a pretty decent "buy it now" price. I bought it and had it shipped here from Virginia. It needed a few things like new tires and wheels, a redo of the interior, some minor engine work and rebuild of the transmission. Of course I added cool props like a police radio and siren (with CMC member Charles Kline) also Starsky's sweater and Hutch's letter jacket.
