The Ford Gran Torino was an intermediate automobile produced by the Ford Motor Company for the North American market between 1968 and 1976. The car was named after the city of Turin (Torino, in Italian), considered the italian Detroit. The Torino was initially an upscale version of the intermediate sized Ford Fairlane, which Ford produced between 1962 and 1970. After 1968, the Fairlane name was retained for the base models with lower levels of trim than those models which wore the Torino name.During this time, the Torino was considered a subseries to the Fairlane.
By 1970 Torino had become the primary name for Ford’s intermediate, and the Fairlane was now a subseries of the Torino. In 1971 the Fairlane name was dropped altogether and all Ford intermediates were called Torino. This name was one of several originally proposed for the Mustang while in development. The Torino was essentially a twin to the Mercury Montego line.
In Episode 20 Season 3 FOXY LADY After the shooting at the start of the story, when Starsky and Hutch take Lisa back to Police Headquarters, Hutch is wearing his light tan brown jacket.

When episode 18 season was originally broadcast, the final scene was a ‘cliffhanger’ type ending with Starsky & Hutch in the Torino being chased by the bad-guys. A gunshot shatters the back-glass of the Torino, and the scene freeze-frames on our heroes as they are startled by the breaking glass. A voice-over tells us to tune in for the exciting next episode!
At the beginning of the next episode, there is no mention of any of this happening, They never explain what happened!
