In 1972 Ford introduced the third generation of the Torino. After a short second generation of only two years, the new Torino featured a design very similar to the previous version. The long hood and short neck look was kept, as well as the coke bottle styling. The Torino line-up was revamped with the new Gran Torino & Gran Torino Sport sitting above the base model Torino.

The new Torino was a sales success for Ford with production totalling 496,645 units, and for the first time ever, Ford outsold the Chevrolet Chevelle since its 1964 introduction.
