History: Was purchased from the Reading, PA area in mid/late1990s by Alan Dutterer of Hanover, PA, who did many of the modifications. Purchased in March 2002 by Terry Divelbliss, then sold to Bill Shaffer of Cambridge, OH in December 2003. The car went to a greedy dumbass in IL in March 2004, then Terry Divelbliss repurchased it in May 2006.
Added to registry: November 2003
(December 2006 - photos above)
I have the original #s 455 block and a pair of Ga heads set aside. The non-original '71 Toronado 455 is a great revving engine with some serious cam.
Correct intake, valve covers, QJet and original #s distributor await eventual re-installation.
Below are some pics from March 2, 2002 when the car was purchased (the first time) by Terry Divelbliss from Alan Dutterer. It had monster tires on Wheel Vintiques 80's-style SSIIs, 3" duals with X pipe, and traction bars.
