Gran Torino" stars Clint Eastwood as the grisly retired Korean war vet, Walt Kowalski. After the war, Walt goes to work for Ford & builds Torinos on an assembly line in Detroit. Walt didn't like many people, but he sure loved his mint, dark green, 1972 Gran Torino.
Unlike many, the movie Torino is 100% real & was purchased on eBay! When filming was complete, Eastwood bought the car for his personal collection.
Max Mumbles says: Gran Torino's weren't actually assembled in Detroit, they were built in Lorain, Ohio, but never let the truth get in the way of a good story!
