1969 Ford Fairlane Cobra, R code 4speed drag pack car with original engine. This is what the cobra should be. Formal roof, cloth bench. Your grandmas grocery getter. Still exactly the way it left the dealership with a magazine article about this car from 1991. The author compares it to the stealth and the article has the vin. number in the article. Unrestored and unmolested. No filler with 1 re paint to keep the body that way. Have the smog system. The cast iron intake and original carburetor with the ram air intake. The article is also why the car does not have staggered shocks. It left the factory as an automatic, 350 gear pwr. brakes, steering and am radio. 14 months later it left the dealership a radio delete, 4 speed 391 gear and oil cooler. Every part on the car starts with C9. Owned the car for about 20 yrs. and only bring out for shows and it draws a lot of attention. Very rare. The car has no Fairline anywhere, just the cobra snakes and hood scoop with 428 cobra jet. The title says Fairline cobra. The back of the block has 66 - 427 stamped on it with a C welded on the other side. It is not a cross bolted block but has the reinforced webbing. The top loader is correct with the reverse shifter opposite and it does have the shelby shifter knob that they came with. This car is a trip back in time. Can show more pics if needed. We have a lift for anyone that request pics underneath. This car is for the Blue oval collector. Please e mail any questions or request

My car was manufactured in the San Jose, California, assembly plant and the original owner purchased it from a dealer in San Jose.
One: I learned to drive on a red-and-white four-door 1957 Ford sedan with a V8 engine and three on the tree. Two: At some point in my childhood, I remember my grandfather owning a black-and-yellow ’57 Ford hardtop.
One of the greatest tricks of marketing automobiles, or anything else for that matter, is creating demand for something that people didn’t know they wanted.
OK, so maybe the word “starred” is overstating the case, but if you lived in the Indianapolis area back in 1988, you might remember watching the local Oldsmobile dealers’ television commercials about the new Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme being the pace car for the 500-mile race. You might have recognized the car in that commercial as […]
In a normal year, participants in the Copperstate 1000 vintage sports car rally would be wending their way around Arizona this week, enjoying the open roads and red-rock vistas in the company of various Porsches, Jaguars, Shelbys, 300SLs, and the occasional pre-war Bentley with racing history.
