The new-for-1966 Oldsmobile Toronado was set up on the same front-wheel-drive platform as the Eldorado. They were both scheduled to be introduced as ’66 models, but Cadillac engineers wanted an extra year to refine their own version of the platform for the Eldo. This 1966 Toronado is owned by Jay Leno.
