Among classic muscle cars, the Blue Oval often appears under-represented as it is hard to get past the Mustang. However, Ford had more in their stables then just the famed pony cars. To compete with the best of what Mopar and GM had to offer, Ford had its own fire-breathing mid-size option in the Torino GT. The 1968-1971 Torino GT was developed from the Fairlane; the name change happened because Ford planners wanted a more aggressive option for drivers who'd outgrown the smaller pony car in the showroom. The two-door Torino GT would initially slide in to replace the top two trim levels of the Fairlane. Thanks to a price drop the re-positioned, redesigned car became a strong seller, with the GT coupe joined by a fastback (or 'SportsRoof') and a convertible. The Torino GT was a very affordable Ford that could easily show its taillights to a long list of contemporaneous rivals. The most venerable of these Ford intermediates was the Torino Cobra, which featured the 429 R-Code, heavy-duty suspension and drag package, shaker hood, power disc brakes up font, locking differentials.
Featured here is an excellent example of these street terrors from the midst of the muscle car era. This Cobra is a phenomenal, Factory Correct Restoration with 15,670 miles showing on the odometer, but can't prove if that's original or not. The factory Candy Apple Red Paint is well applied over professional and well executed body work. The paint has been polished to a high luster and the black vinyl top adds to the stunning looks of this Ford that looks fast just sitting still. Underneath the floors are original with a light coat of undercoating and no visual indications of any collision or rust repairs. The suspension is well detailed and presents as factory correct. Everything has been completely rebuilt and this car drives like it did when it came off the showroom floor. The brakes are power assisted with front disc up front with drums out back.
The interior has been completely restored with new door cards, carpet and seat upholstery. This car was ordered stripped down, with no gauges, radio delete, and no power robbing accessories. Under the hood sits the infamous R-Code 428cid/335hp 4bbl Ram Air Cobra Jet. The engine compartment is show ready and detailed. The drivetrain has been completely restored and transfers power through the Hurst shifted 4-speed close-ratio manual transmission into the 3.91:1 Traction-Lok rear differential.
This beautiful restoration is well documented and complete with a Marti Report documenting Cobras history and rarity as well. This will be a great car to cruise and take to shows and admire.
