eBay watch: 1970s Starsky and Hutch-style Ford Gran Torino car


Here's something that's guaranteed to make men (and women) of a certain age feel nostalgic for their youth, a 1974 Ford Gran Torino car, which is available to buy via eBay.

Of course, it's the car made famous by Starsky and Hutch, with this particular model coming complete with the paint job from the TV show, not to mention a flashing red light. It's a childhood dream come true.

In terms of detail, it's had three owners since being imported from the US, with 70,200 miles on the clock. It's described as being in 'superb condition', with plenty of upgrading and maintenance over the years. Not cheap though – £12,995 on a 'buy it now' or you can make an offer. More images and details on the site.

eBay watch: Starsky and Hutch-styled 1976 Ford Gran Torino


One man's obsession could be your gain with this 1976 Ford Gran Torino, inspired, as you can see, by the cult car from the Starsky and Hutch TV series.

A whopping 18ft long, the car was originally bought off Ebay but has undergone extensive work since – a new Ford Racing 351w crate engine, new Ford Racing Aluminium Manifold, dual hand built Magnaflow exhausts, new radiator and heater hoses, new front rotors, pads, seals, bearings and brake hoses…the list goes on. Check out the site for the full breakdown. Let's just say a lot of money has been spent and the new engine has done just 600 miles.

It still needs some work (again, listed on the site), but looks to run fine as it is. The only thing you'll need to worry about initially is having a garage big enough to house it and the money to buy it. On the last point, £7,000 is needed to get on the bidding board.
