Here's a hot performance car for your consideration; a Torino Cobra. These classic cars aren't seen often these days, despite being a performance car that sold right alongside the many variations of the Mustang. The Torinos were a little more practical than a Mustang and thanks to simple styling were pretty unassuming performance cars. This Torino Cobra in particular, is finished in the factory colors, and offers a 429ci “Thunder Jet” engine which is a 360 horsepower torque monster that is ready for ¼ mile passes.
This Torino is finished in white (Code: M) just as it rolled out of the Atlanta production plant. The car was repainted quite some time ago. The paint shows some age, and much of the chrome trim is pitting, but all the trim is there which can be an issue on a car like this one. The sleek looks, and simple styling are pleasing to the eye and make this car one that can fly under the radar despite its performance abilities.
The spacious interior is finished in black just as it left the factory. A factory tachometer, aftermarket radio, aftermarket speakers, added auxiliary gauges, are just a few highlights of a pretty spartan interior. The interior shows its age in a few spots like the door panels, and driver's side of the front seat. A few tweaks have been made in the way of an aftermarket radio and speakers, a few auxiliary gauges, and a fire extinguisher. Otherwise the interior is as Ford intended.
Under the hood is a 429ci V8 mated to a C6 automatic transmission. The VIN decodes as a “N” for the engine, which is a 429 “Thunder Jet” engine that offers 360 horsepower with a 4BBL carb, and a 10.5:1 compression ratio. As we mentioned earlier, the V8 is a torque monster that is just waiting to put some passes down at a drag strip. Ford's marketing for the '70 Torino Cobra mentioned all the performance capabilities of the Torino Cobra's - from the drag strip to stock car tracks, Ford was proud of the Torino Cobra's performance.
