Ford Gran Torino 1973 images

From 1971 through the Torino is the only intermediate sized Ford, with the intermediate Fairlane now a sub-series of the Torino. All engines have a lower compression ratio to 8.5:1 or lower beginning in ’72 to conform to EPA mandated pollution control requirements. The horsepower ratings from 1972 onward are also changed from an SAE gross horse power rating system to the SAE net BHP rating scale, which also lowers the numbers even further, but this is only a more accurate scale and is no reflection of any drop in power. The base engine is a 250 cu in inline six cylinder and would be coupled to the three speed standard transmission or the Cruise-O-Matic automatic, while the larger engines could also have a four speed standard transmission optioned. The 429 Cobra-Jet power is available, but differs from previous years-it is now a lower reving engine with high torque and will run on regular unleaded gasoline, starting in ’72.
