    The driver's seat in my 1974 Chevelle Laguna Type S-3 manually swiveled outward, which was pretty cool. I didn't use it much, put it was still neat.

    Depended on the year. The 66-67 were 425s, the first offering of the big block Olds. 68 was the introduction of the 455, which was a 425 with a longer stroke. It was offered in the full sized cars, but due to the GM agreement to limit displacement in midsize cars to 400 CID, none of the smaller ones got it until 70. The notable exception being the 68-69 Hurst Olds, who got around the rule by considering Hurst to be a third party upfitter, not a "factory" offering, much the same as a Roush or Saleen.

    Overall the Toronado was a unique and downright odd car. It's a massive luxury car, yet with a FWD configuration. Despite that, it still has the massive displacement of a luxury car of its size. It managed to handle all that torque through a THM425 transmission, that was largely like a TH400 with a chain drive and a differential integrated into it. To accommodate the odd configuration it used torsion bars for the front suspension, and was one of the first GM cars to use a subframe. It was a really odd combination of features we now associate with econoboxes and a 60s/70s luxobarge. They really are mammoth, spacious cars.

    And look how much room they had in the bay

    Imagine being the guy who wasn't paying attention and causing this. "Maybe if I close my eyes nobody will see me." LOL.

    Seriously, though, what a shame! The owner must have really been pissed!
