1970 Oldsmobile Toronado Apparel and Accessories by Legend Lines
The 1970 Oldsmobile Toronado 2-door Coupe remained the company's top-of-the-line model. Power was from the company's largest V8 engine delivering 375 horsepower, backed by a heavy-duty three-speed Turbo-Hydra-Matic transmission. Standard equipment included power brakes, power steering, foam-padded front seat, Deluxe steering wheel, and electric clock. The standard tire size was J78-15. Firestone had initially designed an 8.85 x 15-inch tire specifically for the Toronado called the TFD (Toronado-Front-Drive). The base Toronado had a factory price of $5,025 and the Custom Coupe listed for $5,215. Sales reached 2,351 for the base Coupe and 23,082 for the Custom Coupe. The GT option for 1970 was RPO (Regular Production Option) W34, which added the Rocket V8 engine with 400 horsepower, performance cam, and larger intake valves. Styling included GT Badges on the hood located near the 'Toronado' emblem and the rear bumper cut-outs for the Standard Dual Exhaust System. The GT package was available with all standard and option exterior colors, and a few were given special paint. 5,341 examples of the 1970 Olds Toronado received the GT package.
