This is a 351 cobra jet 4v w/ hurst 4=speed ford top loader! stock bottom end, stock cast iron 4v heads w/ stainless steel valves, 292H comp cam and springs, wiend xcellerator intake, 830cfm holley, 4.56 gears. car weighs 3500lbs Runs 8.90 @ 78mph in the 8th mile.
Toploader four (4) speed
Numerous high-performance versions were built. Designed at a time when
total vehicle weight and maiximum fuel mileage were not major issues, more
was better or in this case stronger. The toploader's gear case and
tailhousing were made of heavy cast iron, and each gear and shaft on
average 15 percent larger than nesessary. Some rare race-bred Toploaders
installed behind 428 Cobra Jet engines were outfitted with cast-aluminimum
tailhousings in an afford to save weight.

for sale to the public, offered exclusively through
FE Big Block, rebuilt with less than 50 miles on it. Not the standard 4v
car, this car features a f actory aluminum dual quad (2- 4v carburetors)

Competition headers, upgraded MSD ignition, Custom Exhaust into Flowmaster mufflers, Holley
electric fuel pump.

driveshaft, 9inch Detroit Locker rear end with 4.11:1 gears.
The body and paint on the car are flawless, arrow straight and the car has
had one repaint, nearly 20 years ago. The interior, similarly flawless.
This is an excellent, investment quality vehicle. A car with this package,
history and low mileage will sell quickly! This is a very rare find!
