“RARE FIND” TORINO COBRA Cream of the crop 1970 "J" code Torino Cobra.

It has a factory 429 CJ Ram Air, close ratio four speed top loader, a 3.25 Nodular Case 9 inch 31 spline posi car with options of power steering and power disc brakes, original working AM radio, tinted glass-complete, Magnum 500 wheels, louvered back window. Read about this car in a three page article written in the August 2000 addition of Mustang and Ford

I have a Marti Report on the car, the data plate reads 05/70, 63H, D, RA, R, 6, 74. I am the fifth owner of the car. Odometer reading is 79,000.

This Torino was originally restored in the early nineties; I can provide all the original receipts from the previous owner. The rebuilt motor work by the machine shop was about $3,600.00 back then. The motor was rebuilt back to the solid lifter or mechanical cam, 11.3 compressions with forged pistons. The heads now have harden valve seats for unleaded gas, chrome molley push rods, Manley guide plates, and SVO full roller rockers. The intake is a SCJ with a 780 Holley but I have the original Quadrajet CJ intake also. The distributor is a Mallory Unilite. Everything else on the motor is original. The flywheel was resurfaced with a new clutch and pressure plate; the close ratio top loader and the Nodular Case 9 inch are original. It also has a new master cylinder and new radial tires The wheels are the original 15 inch Magnum 500's with plastic center caps the original metal caps are perfect and are wrapped up in the glove compartment. The interior is all original except for a new shifter boot. The dash and package tray are perfect.

Everything on the car is original with the exception of being repainted. The car was taken down to bare metal before repaint and there was no rust in the car. The paint has one coat of epoxy primer, two coats or regular primer, three base coats of yellow and three coats of clear. The hood was stripped and repainted Matt Black. The door jams were not painted in order to preserve the door tags; they were in nice condition anyway.

Some of the pictures were taken before the new master cylinder and the radial tires were put on it.
