Argentina

The Torino debuted on 30 November 1966, at the Municipal Racing circuit of Buenos Aires (which was used for the Formula One World Championship race annually).
It was developed by IKA as an Argentine hybrid of AMC's 1964-65 Rambler American and Classic with exclusively designed front and rear body panels, bumpers and interior. The central body section is from the Classic, and the engine and trunk compartments are derived from the American.
The rear coil suspension is borrowed from the Classic, albeit with a four link setup rather than a torque tube. One unique feature is the Torino's front unibody "frame rails" borrowed from the Classic convertible (also used in the 65-66 Marlin). They are longer than the American, extending all the way back under the car to the front of the rear rails. This made for a stiffer chassis, better adapting the car to the rougher road conditions of Argentina at the time. The Torino has a slightly longer wheelbase than the American by one inch - 2723 mm (107-inch).
The car's badging is based on the city of Turin's coat of arms. The symbol is a bull standing on its two hind legs, mimicking the prancing stallion symbol of Ferrari. The Argentine car's front end, rear fascia, and interior were redesigned by Italian auto stylists at Pininfarina to give it a more European look, as well as to make the Torino more appealing to the Argentine public and less like an American car. With the added exterior styling touches, as well as its unique trim and luxurious interior appointments, and Argentine built Kaiser-Jeep OHC six, the Torino is truly a product of Argentina. Estanciera Rural - end of prod. 65.766 were made.
