Up for sale we have a 1970 Ford Torino Cobra Jet. In 1970 Ford came out with an all new design for their Torino. Gone was the boxy lines of years past and in flew the sleek aerodynamic design that we all love. Flash ford to 2008 and that's where you'll find the Torino we have for you finishing up one of the most impressive restorations we have ever seen. There was over $100K spent on the restoration of this car. We have copies of receipts and it's highly documented with the build sheet, window sticker, and Marti Report. In the paragraphs to follow we will give a brief description of the exterior, interior, and driveline of the Ford, but first we would like to tell you a little about us.

We will start off with the exterior of this Torino. From the first moment, you lay eyes on it the quality of the resto is evident. All the panel fit and gaps alignments are excellent, and down the sides are straight as an arrow. This car was restored to factory Specs featuring the Shaker Hood with the Black shaker and blacked out hood. The rest of the body is covered in the Medium Blue Metallic Paint that has been buffed and polished to a mirror finish. It's slick as a ribbon and is equally impressive in all the jams. All the chrome and stainless was either replaced or restored to like new condition. Likewise, all the glass, seals and weather stripping is like new. This Torino came factory with raised white letter tires, so what better way to finish it than to sit it on the steel wheels with small caps and rings wrapped in Firestone Wide Oval Tires.
Next, we will move to the interior on this Cobra Jet. On the inside, it's also been restored to factory specs with the Black Vinyl Bench seats. The seat covers were replaced and all the padding is great. Looking at the door panels they are in great condition along with all Cobra emblems, window cranks and handles. Also, the carpet and Headliner is done in Black and the dome light is working. When you get behind the wheel the first thing you'll do is reach for the Hurst Shifter. You'll notice the dash pad is in excellent condition with the Cobra Emblem and detail. Everything looks like it would have when new from the Speedo to the AM Radio. Inside the trunk has phenomenal detail and features the jack and firestone wide oval spare.
Finally, we will get to the driveline of this Ford. As special as this car is this is what puts it over the top. Only 2,131 of these cars were built with the 429 CJ engine and Four Speed Trans. This one features the 429 Matching Numbers Big Block. It's mated to the Date Code Correct Top Loader Four Speed and a '70 model 9" Posi Rear end with a 4.10 Gear. The 429 also has the date code correct Ford Intake and Quadrajet Carb. It's dressed in the stock style aluminum valve covers. Being a Cobra Jet it has the shaker that mounts to the factory air breather. For exhaust, it has manifolds with dual pipes and Chambered Mufflers. When you look under this Torino it gorgeous. The eye to detail is amazing with the painted floors and all the suspension being detailed to the max. All new balls joints and bushings were installed in the front. Also, new brake and fuel lines were put in along with a new gas tank.
