"Pure class" – Hemmings Classic Car, January 2010

A little Detroit automotive history from Hemmings: "More than 30 years later, it's still a challenge to describe how shocking this transformation (GM's downsizing of many of its models) really was. In one new-car rollout, GM veered sharply away from a half-century of Sloanist growth as measured by wheelbase and curb poundage. It was amazing when it happened. The B-body titans immediately dropped eight inches of wheelbase and, on average, about 800 pounds. The sharp-angled replacements weren't tiny, still measuring 116 inches between the hub centers, but still-it was a dramatic shrinking. When everything stopped spinning, GM's E-bodies, which included the Toronado Brougham and wraparound-backlite XS, became the biggies by default, and they were. Riding on a 122-inch wheelbase with even a base model weighing in at more than 4,600 porcine pounds, this was not exactly the Purplesaurus Rex that GM was trying to serve. But Oldsmobile still enjoyed its first million-unit sales year in 1977, producing just over 33,000 Toronados."

(The full article written about a Toronado virtually identical to the one for sale can be found online here: stories/2016/05/30/toronado-titan-1977-oldsmobile-toronado-brougham)

Offered here is one of those 1977 Toronados in brown (with a tan vinyl roof) over tan. The car's current odometer reading stands at 41,128 miles, or fewer than 1,000 miles per-year since new. The top-of-the-line, front-wheel-drive Olds' incredibly low mileage and overall outstanding original condition is a tribute to owner pride and care for what is a genuine piece of automotive history.

The exterior metallic brown paint is in excellent original condition. The finish is even, properly glossy, and free of even minor scrapes or other damage. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Thin pinstriping in tan (also in excellent condition) adds a classic decorative touch to the fender lines, front and rear. The landau-style vinyl roof is likewise free of damage and retains a showroom-new appearance. The car's presence is undeniable, arguably more striking than even the competing Cadillac El Dorados of the same vintage. Chrome and other brushed-metal body brightwork has been maintained very well; only the lightest patina can be found on door-window surrounds and door handles. The car's bumpers, headlight surrounds, and grille trim sparkles. Cabin glass and lighting lenses-including the quad headlights and quad taillights (two in the bumper and two more atop the rear deck presaging the high-mounted taillights that would become a government mandate)-are clear and free of cracks. All factory-mounted emblems remain as mounted on the assembly line. Factory 15-inch wheels with Oldsmobile-logo, full chrome wheel covers are mounted with Hankook® Kinergy 235/75 thin-whitewall tires.

Inside, the theme is Seventies luxury, and lots of it. Seat upholstery fabric is a metallicized tan-and-gold striped (and buttoned) velour in the Oldsmobile "loose-pillow" luxe style of the day. Rear-seat passengers are treated to the same luxurious, lounge-like setting; both seating rows have center armrests. Properly cared for, the upholstery material shows virtually no wear indications and absolutely no damage. Seat sides are trimmed in tan vinyl. Door trim is tan vinyl accented with a brown carpet panel, with attractive door pulls, power window controls, discreet "Brougham" badging, and safety lighting incorporated. Brown carpeting-protected by brown carpet mats-covers the flat cabin floors (as there is no transmission hump or tunnel). The brown, 3-spoke, woodgrain-trimmed steering wheel fronts a square-design dashboard trimmed in woodgrain and accented with chrome-on-plastic trim. The shift lever for the automatic transmission is mounted on the steering column. Controls for the Tempmatic® climate-control system are slide levers, and the factory AM-FM push-button stereo radio (with woodgrain-trimmed knobs) remains mounted. All graphic markings on the instruments and controls remain crisp and clear, and the woodgrain trim is neither faded nor worn.

Under the hood, the 403-cubic-inch V8-a true and original Oldsmobile-Division design-commands a very clean and stock engine bay. The engine still wears its proper light-blue block paint and "Toronado Front Drive" air-cleaner-cover identification, with most other components in black. It's obvious the engine has received proper periodic servicing. Viewed from below, the Toronado's chassis is complete, straight, and undamaged. The front-wheel-drive system is an obvious visual focal point. The car's body was treated with Tuff Kote Dinol® preservative when new.
