A very nice member over at HWC, otto (Bill), sent over the Walmart exclusive 72 Ford Gran Torino Sport. I had one sent because this “Walmart exclusive” can’t be found at Walmart. There was some unknown glitch, and now finding this, along with two other Walmart models, requires a diligent search among random autopart, grocery, and drug stores, along with a little luck. No luck here. So thanks Bill!
I am not one to collect too many classic muscle car castings. You might find an occasional 67 Mustang, 69 Camaro, and a Challenger or two in the collection, but they are few and far between. But something about the Gran Torino Sport strikes my fancy. So, as is the rule, if I collect the casting, I want all versions. And for a model a little over a year old, there have been a lot of them…
