I hope your right about a '72. I've love the real car from the first time I saw it previewed in the magazines of the day. That open "fish mouth" grille just looked right to me. The fastback is my favorite body style for that year Torino. But, I like the whole Torino line. All body styles looked good to me for '72. Even the plain low line, non "fish mouth", Torinos. Plus Mercury's Montego line up looked great that year too. And the dashboard, especially with optional gauge package looked cool too. And lastly, that year's Ranchero looked great too. A good year for Ford's mid size, redesigned, line of cars.
I can't wait until the S&H Torino comes out. My cousin bought new the last production serial numbered S&H Torino in '76. He owned it and hardlky drove it until he passed in 2006. After he passed I don't know what his wife did with the car. I want to build one to remember him by.
Also I grew up around the Montegos. My Grandfather had a '72 Montego MX Brougham 4 Dr, Black Cherry with a black interior and a 351 Cleveland under the hood. It stayed in the family until 2004 and I drove it. It was a beast. My grandfather did not have power assist brakes and it was scary trying to stop that thing. My Dad hadd a '73 MX Brouham, copper 2 Dr with white vynil and brown inserts and he put on magnum 500 rims. Sharp car but rust prone and it had a list of problems mechanically after it got rear ended. I would love to recreate my dad's car as well.
