1966 Two Engine Toronado - The Ultimate Sleeper Car 850HP
For those of you who follow my offerings, you will recall the very unique two engine 1966 Toronado built by the Grant Piston Ring Company. That car was sold in 2007. Imagine my surprise and delight when I received a phone call from a gentleman from Olympia, WA who also owns a similar two engine 1966 Toronado.
The car was built by the late John Gorman, a true craftsman and known for his building of the Indy car driven by Jerry Grant. The VIN # on this car is 396876M502405 and mileage is 6886 (believed to have been zeroed out when the second engine was installed).
The folklore of this particular car is that the builder John Gorman was part of the engineering team that designed and built the Grant Piston Ring car. He decided to build another one for himself while improving, modifying and creatively adding some amazing engineering wizardry to this car.
The current owner purchased this car in 1978 and has only driven it approx. 300 miles in the last 32 years. Unlike the Grant Piston Ring Toronado which needed a complete restoration, this car is in very nice condition and can be enjoyed and driven today. The car was re-painted prior to 1978 and the paint is holding up quite well considering the amount of time that has passed. It is certainly not show condition but it is quite good according to the owner.
Spring 2011, both carbs were rebuilt. Car starts and runs fine.
This unique car features:
850 Cubic Inches
approx. 850 Horsepower
MSD igntion system
high performance Oldsmobile camshafts
Holley 850 CFM double pumper carbs

I have not viewed or photographed this great car. I am relying on the pictures, video and details provided to me by the seller. I can tell based on numerous conversations that this car has been well maintained and well loved. The owner has owned this car for 32 years.
Owner suggests that the tires be replaced (they are 30 years old).
The owner invites and encourages any interested party to inspect this car in Olympia, WA and see this car for yourself. Seeing is really believing.
