1968 Oldsmobile "Mini" Toronado Press Release

PR photos were sent to all automotive journalists, newspapers, magazines and any other media for use in any articles contemplated.

The Mini Toro was concieved as an adjunct to Public Works and Highway Safety Programs where high traction and power would be a plus. With the front and rear chopped off, the car was intended to be a poor weather safety vehicle.

It was not to be, but the one-off served as a parking lot winter tow and start vechcle at Oldsmobile for many years. Where is it now?

The photos are high resolution and if copied to glossy photo paper will represent like the original.
