The 1966 Toronado had head-turning styling with pop-up headlights that swung up in front of simulated hood scoops. Vacuum operated, a locking system was utilized to ensure the lights locked in the "up" position when the headlights were turned on. Flared wheel wells and steel wheels with ten brake cooling slots enhanced the powerful appearance, and a fastback roof line emphasized the fact that this wasn't your typical Oldsmobile.
Full-view side windows lacked ventipanes, which were made obsolete by a new draft-free ventilation system that swept up outside air in volume, circulated it throughout the passenger compartment, and exhausted it outside through vents below the rear window. All with the windows up, and in total silence.
Due to its front wheel drive configuration, the Toronado had a very spacious interior, with a seating capacity of six passengers. Flat floors front and rear gave occupants plenty of room to stretch their legs, and the absence of a hump running down the center of the car gave new owners something to discuss with friends. Two interior trim levels were offered: the standard Toronado interior featured ribbed vinyl upholstery with bench seats, and can be identified by the short armrests on the front doors and the single inside door handle to open the door. The optional Deluxe interiors included Strato Seats in front which featured a center fold down armrest, full-length door armrests with dual door handles that allowed rear passengers to open the doors, a choice of all-vinyl or cloth and vinyl upholstery, and the provision of recessed controls for the optional power windows, seat, and door locks mounted in the front armrests.
The Toronado offered a long list of standard features which included the 425 Super Rocket V-8 engine, Turbo Hydra-Matic drive, power steering, power brakes, deep pile carpeting, heater and defroster, ashtrays with individual lighters, padded sun visors, padded instrument panel, back-up lights, interior courtesy lights, Guard-Beam frame, drum-type speedometer, and dual-outlet exhaust system.
