Re: Toro Flow Diesel - what do you think?

i was just kicking thru some old post and found this one, I was wondering if you got this truck? They di run well in lighter trucks, and I have one I want to use in my 1965 1 Ton. of course there is plenty of info on my Webiste about these engine and I have been scanning more this past month to add, whcih is why I was looking at old post about Toro-Flow Diesels. I just posted some Photo of Toro-Flow Trucks on the 6066 GMC Guy FaceBook page. and I'll be adding you pics as well. included here is a pic of a Twin Turbo Toro-Flow and one on a stand at the Brooks Museum.

Re: Toro Flow Diesel - what do you think?

Sadly, I thought on it too long and someone bought it. I have no idea where it ended up. I have been kicking myself ever since then, as I am a GMC nut and a diesel nut. My workhorse is a Duramax, and I have a half-dozen 6.2 engines from '82 on in miscellaneous projects. That '66 Toro Flow would have been a great union of my passion for 60-66 GMCs and diesel engines, not to mention a beautiful piece of history to drive down the road. I'm sure I'd be out of the doghouse by now, which would make it all worth it. Thanks for bringing this thread back up; I love reading all the information everyone has added again. I'll keep looking, and maybe find one like it someday...

at least since the guy wanted 4k for it we can be pretty sure it did not get scrapped.

Re: Toro Flow Diesel - what do you think?

I don't think $1k is expensive for a running diesel with the bellhousing and 5 speed trans.
