The Torino was introduced in 1968, was actually part of the Fairlane Series and enjoyed all of the Fairlane 500 trim and was positioned just above it.

The GT package added GT handling suspension, air scoop, styled steel wheels, belted wide-oval white sidewall tires, plus stripes and special identification. The convertible was only available with the GT package.
