1971 Toronado

1971 Oldsmobile Toronado What's new for 1971:
Toronado grew larger and more formal in its first complete redo for 1971. The dash was now shared with other full-size Olds models, and a new Brougham interior included a 60/40 split front seat for the first time. A unique Toronado exclusive feature was a second set of taillights at the base of the rear window that worked with the brake lights and turn signals.
