^ That one ...
$7,501 reserve not met
Here's one of the 1976 factory cars, so it's claimed. For proof they need a VIN starting with 6G30 and a "PS 122" in two locations; on a separate tag and if still available, on the build sheet. It's not the original motor in this striped tomato, asking price is $15,000
Original Starsky & Hutch car from Ford ! Has a rebuilt 1971 460 v8 with around 300 miles on it. The interior needs to be restored. The front end has been gone through and is tight. It has air shocks in the rear and also a new fuel tank was installed.

^^ The Rock Hill car got 2 offers, no sale.
Yeh $7,500 is quite a fair asking price for the Seattle one, it's a '74. A graduate of the 'Herb Tarlek School of Sales Technique' ...
Don't buy this car if you want to be low profile. People walk up to you at the gas station and ask questions. Cops ask to take it's picture. Girls ask to pose on it at the bar. Everyone loves the working 8 Track player!
400M engine bored .030 over with (Thrush?) exhaust. Reliable electronic ignition. Edelbrock 4bbl carb and dual plane intake manifold. Headers may be included in the deal as well as more performance parts. Lots of chrome extras come with the car. Replaced the steering gear box and the master cylinder is new. New interior carpet and overhead. Sport dash with Ford correct AM/FM 8 track player. Front bucket seats. Some interior and paint work needed.

- The Volo Auto Museum is selling a 1976 Starsky, it's doesn't seem to be mentioned if it's a true factory '76 but there's no black border around the white stripe and the VIN does start with 6G30... maybe it is. It's a nice Starsky either way, asking price is $29,998 ...
* Maybe the 351 has a Stroker Kit? I don't think the 357 is a typo ... ?[/quote 0.030 overbore will give 4-6 cubic inches depending on the engine, for example, my 400 in my '57 is 406 cubic inches with a 0.030 overbore, my Hemi in my '58 is 429 cubic inches with a 0.020 overbore.

- A very nice Starsky Torino priced, like the one above, at $15,000. This one is in Los Angeles ...
The drivetrain is a 400 cubic inch V8, C6 transmission, and 9" rear from the factory. S code 400 has a mild Crane cam, Edelbrock Performer intake manifold and carburetor. Engine has been rebuilt at some point, cylinder heads were recently redone with new valves, triple angle valve job, new springs ($1300) and the cam and lifters are new. She has factory manifolds and catalytic convertors dumping into a 2 1/2" exhaust with Dynomax mufflers and mandrel bent tailpipes. C6 automatic trans has a mild shift kit and shifts great. The 2.70 gears were replaced with 3.25 gears to compensate for the tall 27.5" rear Dunlops. The effective gearing is 3.00:1. Has new coil springs in the back with 1 1/2" spring perches with new air shocks

Not only is this remarkable Starsky & Hutch Gran Torino one of the 1,000 limited production editions built by Ford in the spring of 1976, of which only 300 or fewer are still known to be in existence, it was one of the two used by Spelling Goldberg Productions on the actual 1970's TV series. According to a hand written letter it was identified as Unit 129 and was used as a camera car on the TV series for the 77 through 79 seasons. Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul sat in and drove this car!
