Brian Grams’ 1968 Ford Torino was purchased new by his Mother for his Grandmother. After Brian wrecked his Parents’ car, his Grandmother sold the Torino to him for $1. Years later he rebuilt the car into what you see. It’s now powered by a stroked 427 ci small-block V8 featuring a 351 Windsor block, Z2 heads, and Mahle forged pistons. The motor produces 560 horsepower and 540 lb-ft of torque. Brian also replaced the factory C4 three-speed with a T56 Magnum six-speed manual transmission. The car’s frame was extended and a Mustang II front with Ridetech air suspension installed. The car stops thanks to Wilwood four-piston disc brakes assisted by a Hydroboost system. Listen to Brian discuss the project with AutotopiaLA.
