1972 Ford Torino V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 8000 miles
I just bought a 72 Gran Torino and went to drive it, did not know parking break was on. (Never use mine) I'm doing a full restore so I guess thats one more thing to fix in the process now. Oops! But I parked it after I drove it, went to start it again later and noticed that if it is in PARK, and I have the accelerator slightly depressed, the car wants to go in reverse. It needs a new carb as it is hard to start and am in the process of getting that replaced, but not sure what the problem is here. Very strange. I'm not sure if I somehow stripped a device in the steering column or if its a transmission problem. I put 91 octane gas in there and it seems to be running a bit worse than 87. Any help is greatly appreciated.
