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.
