37: Ford Torino GT
Although Ford had an immense amount of success with the Mustang, the company still hadn’t cracked the muscle car market. There were Ford muscle car choices but it wasn’t as defined as the GM or Chrysler offerings. Thus the automaker decided to release the Ford Torino GT, which was a unique offering. The Torino had a lot going for it but there were also some oddities such as the heavy bodyweight and the lack of interior refinement.
The Torino GT probably won’t garner the same kinds of stares as a Chevelle SS would. But the car had a lot of unique features that made consumers take notice. The performance was adequate for the time period and the new constraints on the market. Needless to say, the hype didn’t add up to the actual car once it was released.
