Description for Ford Torino 1970

Here is a very rare and desirable 1970 Torino Cobra 429 Super Cobra Jet Drag Pack 4 speed with 3.91 Traction Lock rear axle and factory oil cooler. Factory Dark Blue with blue bucket seat interior. Other options as verified by are powersteering, power disc brakes, console and 15" Magnums. This is a C code non ram air car but has had the shaker added. It didn't get much better than this in 1970 and today is one of the most desirable and valuable Torino's. It appears to have been off the roadsince the late 70's or early 80's. The car needs a restoration but would be a great place to start since most of the hard to find parts are present and with the value of these cars you will have lots of room to invest into a restoration and come out ahead.


The paint is obviously poor but it does appear to be original paint other than the driver's door and hood which have been replaced. The body is overall fairly solid, however, there is rust in the front floors, the right quarter behindthe rear wheel and the left lower quarter/drop off area. The front floors should not need to be completely replaced but could just be patched to retain as much original metal as possible. The frame rails, torque boxes and trunk floor are very solid. There issome damage to the driver's quarter that is fixable and a slight crease in the right quarter. The taillight panel is damaged in and should probably be replaced, or at least the center of it. The trunk lid has some damage and some rust and should probably bereplaced. The windshield is cracked and the chrome is overall decent but with a car this valuable you will want to have bumpers etc redone


The interior is all original will need to be restored. It does come with brand new, correct, upholstery for the front and rear seats. Door panels have no speaker holes and the vinyl is in good shape. The console is there and has the correct 4 speed plate. The plasticconsole body is broken and will need repair.


The engine is the correct non numbers matching D0VE-A 4 bolt block with correct D0OE-R heads, correct Holley flange intake, finned aluminum valve covers and correct exhaust manifolds. The heads and pan were removed for inspection but is now bolted together looselyfor shipment. Engine looked good inside. One exhaust manifold was cracked and has been repaired. It has the complete original oil cooler assembly with lines and adapter. It has the correct RUG AU close ratio big spline 4 speed toploader with original Hurst shifter and T handle. It stillhas the correct and original big pulley alternator and big pulley power steering pump. It comes with original flywheel and clutch linkage. It does not have the original smog, carb, rev limiter, distributor, lower pulley, block plate or driveline. It is alsomissing the speedo reducer although the correct speedo cable is there. It does have the original nodular case 31 spline rearend


Overall this is a very worthwhile project being that it is an original Super Cobra Jet Drag Pack 4 speed in a great color combination. The Ford Dark Blue on a Cobra is one of the best looking colors for these cars. I bought this car a fewyears ago with the intent of restoring it and have been collecting parts. I have listed all the significant parts that are still missing that I can think of but I may have missed something so feel free to ask if something hasn't been addressed.I have always wanted a Drag Pack Cobra and the only reason I am selling is that I found a 69 Shelby that I am going to restore and I still have another Cobra so I have to thin the herd a bit.
