About Ford Elite In General: This classic car is a rare and limited production by Ford. As a attention grabber it is fun to drive. The Ford Elite is an automobile which was produced by Ford for the North American market from mid-1974 to 1976. The Elite was based on the Ford Torino, and was a two-door coupe intended to be, in the words of Ford's advertising, a "mid-size car in the Thunderbird tradition"—a more affordable personal luxury car than the Thunderbird, intended to compete with such cars as the Chevrolet Monte Carlo and the Chrysler Cordoba. It was essentially the concurrent Mercury Cougar XR-7 with a mild front end restyling to resemble the Thunderbird, different taillamps and center reflector, unique twin opera windows and large color-keyed vinyl moldings placed higher on the bodysides. The interiors were essentially identical save for upholstery styles and minor trim. Introduced in mid-1974, the Elite was considered a sub-model of the Torino. Although advertised separately, the side script said "Gran Torino Elite" and the car would be titled and registered as a Gran Torino. For 1975 and 1976, the Grand Torino name was dropped and the Elite became its own model using only the "Elite" script nameplates. In all three years, the car sold well. The Elite name was dropped after 1976 because the Ford mid-size range was being restructured. The Thunderbird was dramatically reduced in size and price for 1977 by moving the nameplate to the LTD II platform that replaced the Torino. In effect, the Elite continued restyled and marketed under the more-recognized Thunderbird name, as the previous full-sized Thunderbird was discontinued. With a top speed of 118 MPH it was not to be underestimated.
