Starsky & Hutch Gran Torino

(originally posted 22 July 2011; recovered from archive.org 17 May 2013)

I saw a nice example of the ‘76 Gran Torino in Starsky and Hutch garb at the Victoria, B.C. swap meet in late June. I remember one of these around town in the late 70’s when I was growing up there. Could this be the same one? The owner wasn’t around, so I couldn’t find out if it was an original Victoria car.

It was immaculately restored and even featured a Kojak light and police siren equipment under the dash. Note that 537 ONN is the correct license plate for the TV series car.

On the Old Car Manual Project, we have a 1976 Ford Foldout Brochure, but nothing showing the Starsky & Hutch option.  Anybody have one out there? Email me if you do!
