Fast & Furious 4: Ford Gran Torino | Edmunds.com


What Clint Eastwood did for the 1972 Gran Torino in Gran Torino, Fast & Furious will try to undo. Because in this movie, the very nastiest bad guy - you know, the chief henchman who does the dirtiest deeds and dies just before the big boss bad guy gets his - drives a '72 Gran Torino Sportsroof.

The inspiration for the Gran Torino in Fast & Furious comes from a similar Torino built for Dan Widmann at Steve Strope's Pure Vision Design - the same shop from which emerged the Hammer Road Runner that's also featured in the film. Strope brought Widmann's Torino to a casting session and a star - well, a co-star - was born.

The one significant visual change between Widmann's Torino and the replicas built for the film is that Widmann's car is blue, and the bad guy Torinos were painted green. It seems that blue was already assigned as super-dreamy Paul Walker's color in Fast & Furious, so the bad attitude character "Fenix Rise" (played by Laz Alonzo) would have to wear green.

Little matter, however, as the Gran Torino looks dang good in green.

To portray Fenix's FoMoCo, the picture car department acquired six '72 Torino Sportsroof models and one '73. As with the Charger, some of the stunt cars were fit with Chevy crate V8s and automatic transmissions, but at least one of the cars was originally equipped with a 429 and four-speed manual transmission. Five of the cars were either destroyed during production or ripped apart for parts.

Among the Torinos destroyed was that 429 four-speed car. Sometimes evil must be done in order to portray evil.

Clearly does not have knowledge. All 429 1972 Gran Torinos were equipped
with C6 automatic transmissions. If you find a manual 429, someone
converted it. 351 Cleveland cars could be optioned with a 4-speed (Top
Loader) transmission. Never offered with the 429 big block for this

It was such a shame when that Pathetic "Starsky & Hutch" rubbish Movie was
made. Crap Actors with Big Ego's, Rubbishing a Classic tv Show, and
quite a few 74-76 Gran Torino's along the way, to me, it was just
Senseless, and
the way that Hollywood operates these days.

There weren't any other big stunts for the Torino other than the crash at
the end of the tunnel. So why 9 of them. That doesn't make sense. Well
thank you Clint for not destroying yours.

the Dukes of Hazzard show adveraged 3 chargers per show. 2 per jump (the
car landing is a different car then the one jumping) and 1 for every 2 cop
cars. its estimated that they destroyed between 150 and 200 charger during
the shows run (it slowed down towards the end when budget cuts were done
and they started using models/toy cars). anther 50 were destroyed during
the films (the 3 made-for-TV ones and the 2 major hollywood ones).

Автор CamaroAmx ( назад)
no. the show was made from about 78 to 86 (?). by that point the 68-69
charger was out of production for 10 years. the charger nameplate itself
was killed of in 78 (until its return in 83 as a FWD Omni-based sporty
compact car and then again in its current run starting in 05). by that
point it was nothing more then a rebadged Chrysler Cordoba luxury car.

Автор CamaroAmx ( назад)
same with Christine. there were very few Furys built and instead of using
the more common base model, the Belvidere, they used real Furys. that film
just about took out 1/2 of all 57-58 Fury's left in 1978 (in any
condition). add 35 years to that and real 57 Furys are near impossible to
find (most Christine clones are made from Belvideres).

Автор CamaroAmx ( назад)
actually for the Dukes of Hazzard (both TV show and films), they put ads
outs saying they'd buy any 68-70 charger, paying no more then $2,000 (the
per car budget for the major film). when the show was made, chargers were
just concidered used cars. when newer films came out they actually used any
68-69 charger they could find, wether it came from a junkyard or were
survivor cars (unrestored originals). many were good running or restorable

Автор Nate Karg (1693 года назад)
you got that right lol fucking new chargers are ugly and the challenger is
even uglier lol. They always have too many dodges in the film and not
enough of fords.

Автор Nate Karg (1834 года назад)
they'll probably just fix them all up again since they have all the money
in world to buy all the cars in the first place lol

@MartyInLa Thank you..i have a 72 as well....im going to attempt this side
exhaust, but try to get it funtional like the nascar editions! I just found
out that this car is going to the leake auction in dallas,tx november 18-20
and its actually a 73 gran torino title and has a 72 front end! I couldnt
believe it butt cant wait to see how much it sells for! It should raise the
bar and value of these RARE antiques! Im hoping!

Автор MartyInLa ( назад)
@knappjames23 Yes, you are right, the sidepipes aren't functional in that
vehicle, they are just there for looks. I have a '72 Torino, and my guess
is they have the same type of exhaust as my car. I have turn downs which
has exhaust tips welded onto the mufflers in front of the rear axle. There
are no tail pipes. The reason I did this is the dual exhausts don't get
that hot, and I had exhaust pipes rot out in as few as 6 months.

Автор James Johnson ( назад)
And it's spelled they. Nice touch.

Автор James Johnson ( назад)
@shzze Wow, way to misinterpret him. They built 9 as in tore down the car
and built it from the ground up. They're saying that they found three
factory 4 speed cars out of those 9. Not they built 9 from scratch and
found 3. It's almost impossible to build a Torino from scratch. Companies
that make body shells for a living will put hundreds of thousands of
dollars into the project so they can make thousands of bodies. Why put all
that in for 9 when you can easily go find 9 for a few thousand?

Автор James Johnson ( назад)
@shzze What are you retarded? Qouted from the video, "We actually found 3
factory 4 speed cars, one of them being the 429 car." How do you explain
this if "they're fakes"? They somehow found three fake factory 4 speed
Torinos to beat on? Sorry, but that's just bull. You don't know what you're
talking about, and they do waste tons and tons of classic cars. It's
disgusting. You want to know how they "get so many cars to destroy"? One
word: money.

They should get shitty rusted 'past the point of no return' cars and then
fix them enough to drive and look good on camera then destroy them instead
of getting actually good cars and just obliterating them.
