133288 / 1971 Ford Torino Cobra
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/beaojvg If you're in the market for a special Ford that's stacked with a top option drivetrain, this amazing Torino Sportsroof is your next car! This buff Torino popped out of Ford's hot Atlanta factory on September 2nd of 1970 in the midst of the great American performance wars. After spending a short time as top notch showroom candy at Thompson Motors in Hampton, Virginia, it began a long life of solid maintenance and back roads workout routines. And today, covered in a fresh coat of correct Grabber Blue paint, it sits as the beneficiary of a thorough frame-up restoration that was conducted on solid, all-Ford bones. Lift the car's war painted hood and you'll find a date-correct D1VE 429 Cobra Jet V8 which has been fully detailed to a better-than-factory appearance. While Ford brass rated these big engines at 370 horses for the sake of appeasing whiny insurance agents, they probably had a hard time keeping a straight face. That's because real world numbers were closer to 460 horsepower, allowing this sizeable car 13-second quarter mile passes with some basic shade tree tuning. At full throttle, the flapper valve opens, drawing cool air through a correctly decaled ram air induction system into to a large Holley four-barrel carburetor. Below that carburetor, finned aluminum valve covers hang at the sides of an original cast iron intake which holds a correct Autolite coil next to a traditional points distributor and fresh suppression cables. The smooth mill breathes through cast iron manifolds which exhale into a true dual Exhaust system. And all the while a correctly decaled radiator cycles water through reproduction Autolite hoses and correct tower clamps. As you can see, the car's spotless engine bay has been properly sprayed in a smooth coat of satin black paint. And all its correct ancillary components, from fresh decals and an Autolite voltage regulator to a correct power steering pump and a reproduction Autolite Sta-Ful battery, are present and accounted for. Peek underneath the car and you'll find a clean and solid undercarriage that's punctuated by factory blue floors. In the center of those floors, a close ratio four-speed manual transmission proves just as effective as ever at slinging gears and scorching stoplights. From there, power is channeled down the driveshaft to a rugged combination of correct 3.25 gears and Dutchmen axles that are housed in a correct Ford 9-inch Traction-Lok rear end. And the torque finally meets the road through a familiar set of chrome Magnum 500 wheels which wear equally vintage F70-15 Firestone Wide Oval Super Sport tires. The car's suspension remains in stock form with double A-arms at the front and parallel leaf springs out back. Spent gases are whisked through aluminized, true dual pipes which employ an H-pipe crossover and great sounding dual chamber Flowmaster mufflers. As mentioned before, there's a freshly rebuilt power steering system that makes turning easy and parking a cinch. And braking is an equally smooth process thanks to rebuilt manual drums that occupy all four wheel hubs. Between the car's sizeable doors, a black vinyl interior offers the one thing many basic muscle cars didn't -- comfort. While the bench seats may not look like the lap of luxury at first, a brief stint behind the car's wheel reveals just how comfortable they really are. At ground level fresh black carpet, which is framed by chrome Ford sill plates, covers rock solid floors while an equally nice headliner lines the long, slopped roof. The dash is stock but Ford's choice to use individual gauge pods versus a standard cluster makes it look more modern than other cars of the day. At the center of that dash, a correct Philco AM radio rides above a well-integrated Auto Meter oil pressure gauge and a chrome Hurst T-handle shifter. And in front of the driver, a factory steering wheel combines with chrome accessory knobs and pleated black door panels to provide a fresh and appealing driving environment. There simply aren't that many chances to own a top dog muscle car -- especially at this money. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information on this awesome Torino Cobra!

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/lw5q6gm In the collector world, super rare cars with gobs of factory-installed power usually command attention and serious money. If you're in the market for rare Ford Motor Company sheet metal that won't drain your kid's college fund, look no further than this 1 of 1 1969 Ford Torino Cobra. Fresh out of a comprehensive nut and bolt restoration, this true R-code Cobra is about as close to sleeper as anything with a Cobra badge could ever get. One of just 17 Cobras to leave the Los Angeles assembly plant wearing Meadowlark Yellow, this Formal Roof Ford features immaculate paintwork sprayed over a laser straight original body. Fit and finish is exceptional with crisp lines and even gaps all around. With its vinyl top and soft yellow paint, the only warning other motorists received came in the form of a functional hood scoop and a few Cobra badges. The rest of the car is pure Torino. The stainless is immaculate and the glass looks great surrounded by the black vinyl top. Under the hood, the original Super Cobra Jet 428 remains in place wearing a correct casting number and 9K108609 partial VIN. Conservatively rated at 335hp, the engine utilized a strengthened medium block, heavy duty connecting rods, a nodular iron crankshaft and larger valves and ports to produce enough power to hold its own on the street. Restored to factory specs, the bay looks showroom. The engine fires immediately and sounds great thanks to a set of Magnaflow mufflers. The potent 428 is backed by a Toploader four-speed manual transmission and a 9-inch Traction-Lok differential that's been updated with 3.25 gears. The drivetrain is supported by a stock suspension featuring double A-arms up front and a leafs with staggered shocks out back. Turns are helped by a freshly rebuilt power steering system that utilizes a GM style power steering pump while braking is power assisted with disc brakes up front and drums at the rear. The sleeper look is aided by Argent style steel wheels wrapped in Firestone Wide Oval tires. Documentation includes an Elite Marti Report which breaks down the car to a 1 of 1 based on selected options. Also included is an original owner's manual that explains each of the car's functions as interpreted by Ford's marketing department. There simply aren't that many chances to own a true 1 of 1 car -- especially for this money. With the Super Cobra Jet and slick-shifting Toploader, the car is guaranteed to be a blast to drive as well.
