1968 Ford Torino Machete Concept

Torino Machete is a racy new idea car from Ford Division. A modified version of the 1968 Fairlane Torino GT Fastback, the show car was created at the Ford Design Center in Dearborn, Mich. It has a special two-tone "pearlescent" white and silver finish. The unusual grille features twin horizontal black air scoops. Headlamps are concealed behind electrically operated doors. Roof pillars have been widened to provide additional privacy for rear seat passengers. Machete's taillights are flush with the lower portion of the deck panel, and concealed by white coated lenses. With light off, the taillamps are hidden, blending smoothly into the white rear panel.
