In my back to basics/plain jane spirit, I have a couple of modified M2 Torinos. First, I removed the tampos on a GT and replaced the grille with a basic Torino grille and added redlines in place of the Polyglas tires




Second, I took a Torino Cobra that was an Auto Lift done like a Driver. I swapped the chassis out with another Torino and went with it.

Torinos were pretty fast considering the weight. Nice work

M2s sure are fun to rip into. Nice Torinos!

Is that gold '69 Olds in the background a JL?
Or maybe an M2? I can't tell.

No, it is a High Speed. That is the same Chinese manufacturer that makes the GL Auto Worlds now. That is the 69 442 casting same as the GL but with a JL wheel swap.

So you left the GT hood on it? Need to also remove the rear window louvers for a more plain jane look.

I am a fan of these years of Torinos, my first car was a '70 Fairlane that had the GT hood on it. I haven't seen too many honeycomb tail light Torino/Fairlane tho since I sold mine over 10 years ago :(

Ah...ok, thanks.
I'm familiar with the series. I have the orange one from GL.
It`s a good casting, better than the JL in some ways.

Would anyone know of a linc that shows GL Auto World releases from the last couple years?

Nice work. Now you need a Cobra Torino and shaker hooded GT in the same colors for a four of a kind
