The Torino was originally a part of the Fairlane family however in the 70’s it broke away from the Fairlane name and became its own component. The Motor Trends Magazine made the 1970 Ford Torino the Motor Trends Magazine Car of the year. The GT also introduced the new 400 horse power 429 cubic inch “canted-valve” engine.
