Gran Torino

1972 Grand Torino

     The Gran Torino which is often mis-pronounced Grand Torino was introduced in 1972. Although prior to this year Ford had put the emblems GT on the torino's it did not stand for Gran Torino. Ford used the GT logo's on many of their other car models including the popular Mustang. The 1972 Torino was the first year for the car to wear the Gran Torino badge.

      In the mid to late 70's the popular tv series Starsky and Hutch featured a Torino similiar to the one pictured above. This popular show made this body style very desirable for those faithful viewers. The Torino was again introduced in the Clint Eastwood movie Gran Torino. This made the popularity of these automobiles rise recently. Many people that have only seen these cars in movies or on tv often refer to ALL of them as Gran Torino or Grand Torino even though they are not all named that.
