eBay watch: Original 1976 limited edition Starsky and Hutch Ford Gran Torino car


Appealing very much to your inner child is this original 1976 limited edition Starsky and Hutch Ford Gran Torino car. Yes, an authentic crime fighting car from 'back in the day' – and it could be yours.

According to the seller, this is a genuine PS122 car, one of 1000 Starsky and Hutch cars built by Ford between February and May 1976 in itds Chicago factory. Today less than 200 are thought to exist worldwide. This one comes with the original build sheet, plus the original owner’s manual for authenticity.

In terms of specifics, the car is described as being in 'excellent original condition', with only 59000 miles on its 351W engine. It has also been serviced and MOT'd every year regardless of mileage, and the car will be sold with 3 months MOT and service. The car has also been professionally weather-sealed, the paintwork is original (aside from some work on the stripe by a past owner) and despite its age, there is no rust and no restoration work.


This model was used at the movie premiere in London and at other promotions for the film in 2004 and Antonio 'Huggy Bear' Fargas has signed the trunk lid. It's also just come off the back of being in a museum for seven months. Want it? £14,995 is the price, although the seller will take an offer if you want to chance your arm.
