Ford Torino Station Wagon - Need the year built

Kurtruk is correct.  Ford used the same grille and trim on the 74, 75 and 76 Torino.  Not a rare styling decision at the time, but how boring.  Now that I'm thinking about it, it happens even these days.

Only the base Torino (shown in Steve's picture) for 1974 shared the same grill as the base Torino of 1973.

All others received the new Gran Torino style grill as pictured on the yellow paramedic car above.  The base grill was dropped in 1975 when all models shared the same style and there were no styling changes from 1975 to 1976.  So this car pictured has to be one of those two years.

Cheers, Greg

Those big ugly bumpers used from 1973 don't do a thing for me.  I'll take a '72 & earlier Torino or Fairlane over that one anyday.
