These photos were taken in August of 2006, at Classic Convertible, in Freeport, Maine.Sorry - this Oldsmobile is not for sale at any price, it is willed to my brother. It took me a long time (almost 10 years) to acquire this very speical Toronado.UPDATED Feb 6, 2009. Here is a link from Barrett-Jackson PBCCA Palm Beach, Fl, from the Spring of 2005:http://www.barrett-jackson.com/application/onlinesubmission/search.aspx?aid=283&d=01/17/2009&st=1&lot=1530 1968 Oldsmobile Toronado with 400hp W-34 option. Only 111 1968 Olds Toronados had this option(out of 26,454 total units). The W-34 option consits of: high lift cam (286 degree, 285 intake, 287 exhaust. .472 lift on both intake and exhaust, OEM # 400165), OM code transmission (beefed-up torque convertor), recurved distributor, ram-air intake(1968 only, unit is under the hood),notched rear bumper(1968, and 1970 GT, 1969 was straight edge on all units) and switch on the left on the radiator(1968 W-34 only, this unit automatic puts the grills up, due to engine heat and/or hot weather ). This Toronado rolled off the assembly line in Lansing,MI, from Plant#2, on Feb. 3, 1968. Options: W-34 package, a/c(not comfortron -thank God), chrome wheels,disc brakes. This model is kind of a stripped model,am radio, no power seat, roll-up windows, dual rear view mirrors(rare for early Toros). Interior is orignal and still in mint condition (ie no tears on the driver's side -common on early Toronados). This car has been in NC twice(1968,2005/2006), Fl (1996-2005), New York(few months of 2005), Maine (2006- present) This car was ordered by an Oldsmobile zone manager in North Carolina, Bob Branan, who worked for Oldsmobile for many years. From what I was told, so many Oldsmobiles were sold in North Carloina, the TAR HEEL STATE was its own zone. I first saw this rig on a Thrusday, Aug 21 or 22 of 1997 at the Olds 100th Anniversary in Lansing, MI. Lost touch with the Florida owner over the years.About 2003 on 442.com, I saw that Marty Leonard, (the third owner, and who I meet in August of 1997) posted "Big Red" on that site. As far as I know I am the 5th owner of this 1968 W-34 Toronado.In June or July of 2006 I had the 6-disc CD charger, that was in the glovebox and trunk - removed. A new starter was in installed. I also installed an K&N air filter (a unit that fits the stock air cleaner). I NEVER plan on selling this Toronado, plus I all ready have it in my will for my younger brother (who likes the red bumper). Somewhere between 25-26 1968 Toronados are accounted for, that have the W-34 option.
