Old Cars Reader Wheels: 1974 Ford Gran Torino Elite

Old Cars spotlights a reader’s 1974 Ford Gran Torino Elite.

Lari Helgren is living the high life in a Gran Torino Elite. This is one fine cruiser. This is what Lari had to say about the mid-sized Ford…

"This is my 1974 Gran Torino Elite. I bought it new in '74. It has a 351 Cleveland 4-barrel carb, AC,PB and 104,000 miles. It is still in mint condition. I just had a bluetooth stereo installed that looks factory. I had it repainted and new vinyl top done in 1989. I also just had the whole car detailed and ceramic coated. It is a number matching car too."
