I purchased my Torino GT from my brother in 1975 for 750.00. It had 69k miles with a 351c 4V FMX 3:00 open gears. It also came with beauty rings and hubcaps. I almost immediately put Cragar SS wheels on it, screwed a big tach on the dash, headers, and other goodies. It was well optioned with selectaire and more. I put 55,000 miles on it mostly between Dog N Suds and A&W in Sedalia, Missouri in the mid to late 1970's. I sold it for 750.00 in 1981 (I thought I got a good deal). The fella I sold it to told me that it was stripped along side the highway going into Baton Rouge about 1 month later when it overheated and he left it overnight on the side of the road.
