1970 Ford Torino Cobra, 429 SCJ with Factory Drag Pack. The 429 Super Cobra Jet engine was a serious device with 4-bolt mains, forged aluminum pistons on special cap-screw Le Mans connecting rods, special crank, flywheel and damper, solid-lifter cam, Holley 780 CFM 4-barrel carburetor and a special Drag Pack remote oil cooler. This well-documented 34,921-mile fully restored 1970 Ford Torino boasts the 429 Super Cobra Jet with its Drag Pack optioned rear axle with 3.91:1 Traction-Lok, with gear reduction speedo cable for accurate speedometer reading and its Nodular 9'' Rear End. This Rare Cobra retains its original carburetor, correct DOOE-R Cylinder heads and factory Rev Limiter. Equipped with dual exhaust and a 4-speed close ratio manual transmission. Correct Bright Yellow with blacked-out Shaker Ram Air hood, twist-down hood locks and black rear window Sport Slats, it is fitted with a black interior, high back bucket seats with center console and rides on Chromed Magnum 500 wheels wrapped in new BF Goodrich T/A radial tires. Of all 1970 Torino Cobras produced, only 105 were built with these options, making this a rare and very desirable investment opportunity. The Torino was Motor Trend's Car Of The Year for 1970 thanks to a total redesign to a more streamlined body style with a wider and lower stance. Complete with Owner's manual, original sales literature and an Elite Marti Report.
