1975 Ford Gran Torino Sport Hardtop Starsky & Hutch Smartphone Case - Racing Stripes
1975 Ford Gran Torino Sport Hardtop Starsky & Hutch Cell Phone Case for Smartphone
“Starsky and Hutch,” a show about plain-clothes investigators working in California, was a massive hit, running in prime time from 1975 to 1979 and spawning a movie 25 years after the show’s cancellation. Although memorable for its chase scenes and bromance, the breakout star is the cops’ custom-painted Ford Gran Torino. Creator William Blinn originally wanted a green and white Camaro, but Ford’s studio car loan program made using stock Gran Torinos much cheaper. An air suspension and five-slot mag wheels with wider tires were added to handle stunt driving, but it was the paint job, a bright red with white “Vector” stripes designed by transportation coordinator George Grenier, that made the car stand out. Paul Michael Glaser (Starsky) hated the paint scheme, nicknaming it “the striped tomato.” Models from 1974 to 1976 were used on the show. They had 351, 400 and 460 cubic-inch engines and a variety of options. Stunt cars had custom rear ends with lower gear ratios for quicker acceleration. The popularity of the car sparked a fad for replica paint jobs. Even Ford got into the act, making a limited run of 1,100 vehicles in 1976. Since the show cars were mostly stock, it can be difficult to verify provenance: the only proof a car recently sold by Leake Auctions in Tulsa was used on the show was a plaque reading “20th Century Fox Film Studios” and a visor signed by the show’s stars.
