I'm thinking about purchasing a 1980 toronado. it has the 5.0 lt. engine, puts out about 300 horses. I was wondering if anyone could give me any input on this particular year. thanks.

I would say that a 1980 5.0L (307) is only good for 160hp, unless it was heavily modified.

General Motors was undoubtedly the paramount of automobile innovation for many decades. Such fabulous designs of yesteryear. I personally have a deep appreciation for Oldsmobile's grandest engineering marvel: The Toronado. The first generation Toronados: (1966-1970) were the most unique; the second generation Toronados: (1971-1978) were still handsome automobiles that focused more on luxury. Toronado sales increased with the introduction of the 1971 model. The third generation Toronados: (1979-1985) marked an end of an era for the Toronado. These third generation Toronados may have been down of horsepower and suffered some drive-ability problems: (5.7 liter diesel engines), but they still had that unique Toronado sytle, comfort and elegance led by the styling team of the late great, incredibly talented Bill Mitchell. As the owner of a 1970 Toronado, I can only say that this car is superb; a true gem of automotive excellence.

My mother owns a 1977 Metallic Blue Oldsmobile Tornado. The model with the wrap-around all glass rear window. The car is like new having been garaged (off the road) since the mid-eighties. It has 36,000 original miles. I am looking for information as to the value of this vehicle. If you have any ideas, please email me at pchristjohn@atlanticbb.net. Thank you!

My first car was a 1972 Toronado, and I wish I had it back. I am still looking for a car that I like as much. The carburetor was a Rochester quadrajet, and I had it rebuilt, and man the power that car had was awesome. If anyone around Easley S.C. has one for sale, please let me know. Thanks.

My first car was also a '72 Toronado -- Amazing car (including the custom 8-track player) & I wish that I could find another Toronado to play with...
