Vehicle Description

The 1970 Ford Torino GT Cobra 429 is a sleek coupe that has the size and power to be the ideal example of the muscle car era. But what makes this one truly irresistible is because you're looking at a true barn find that has been expertly restored with awe-inspiring details from the A/C interior to the numbers-matching big block V8.

This real-deal Torino GT Cobra is a true prize for muscle car collectors. The Chevelles looked great, but these rarer blue oval coupes captured the style even better. Plenty of time was given to develop some of the most interesting body lines put to sheetmetal. For example, the sharp crease that starts on the front fender's overhang progresses into a wave that continues past the door. You can see this particularly well because this example has been expertly restored. This coupe spent over a decade hidden in a North Carolina barn. It was resurrected in the early 2000s by the restorer who also happens to own a professional body shop. So that's why the panels look absolutely awesome, and the factory-correct red paint retains a terrific gloss. The restoration had a well-done eye for looking stock. That's why you'll love the sporty details, like the blackout hood, twist locks, large dual exhaust tips, and coiled snake Cobra decals. Color-matched steel wheels with dog dish factory hub caps are a racer's favorite. In fact, while you'll know there's less than 250 miles on this coupe since its restoration, it has just the right look where most strangers will assume you've got an awesome survivor.

Inside this is premium and roomy. The interior continues this coupe's time capsule look. In fact, there's the right hints of patina to really give you the ideal nostalgia. In fact, you're not the only one who gets to appreciate this true classic style. While this was intermediate-sized by 1970s standards, today this Torino GT will seat six people with ease. There's even the right upgrades to keep them happy without taking away from the vintage atmosphere. For example, you have the factory AM radio on display, but your real driving music comes from an AM/FM/cassette radio hidden in the glovebox. And the classic-style air conditioning module is blowing cold with modern R134a. But this Cobra is really all about the driver. There are a few well-integrated upgrades, like the water temp gauge and a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel. Just like the exterior, this is a detail-oriented package. You'll notice it everywhere from the factory-style key instructions on the sun visor, to the cool horizontal factory tach.

Ford's 429 cubic-inch V8 is one of the meanest motors from the muscle car era. So it absolutely gets your enthusiast heart pumping to see the numbers-matching Thunder Jet motor still under the hood. They made sure to give this an exceptionally tidy look because you're going be showcasing it. Ford blue on the engine block, finned valve covers, and correct decals all add up to a show-quality engine bay. It fires up with authority, the dual exhaust gives a nice big block rumble, and the V8 runs with the kind of quality that tells you it has been maintained properly. And to make sure it's easy to cruise this Cobra, you have a stout C6 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front.

The sale come complete with terrific documentation, including the factory buildsheet, owner's manual, restoration photos, and the Marti Report. Plus, the original transmission can also come with the sale. This is an awesome GT Cobra with an even cooler story, and so you don't want to miss this opportunity. Call now!
