I am selling this Torino Cobra at NO RESERVE due to a recent and very unexpected medical condition. I personally feel that you will never find another one that is this original and documented at this price. I will also be selling my original drivetrain, original body panel, Tuxedo Black 1969 L78 4-speed  El Camino SS as well in the near future. 

 

To start with, let me first say that I understand that there is a ton of photos and information in my ad. OK, so there is more than a ton with (211) photos (1) video. Anyways, I also understand that this may be boring to the person who is just looking and not buying. However, for the person who is looking to buy and spend their hard earned money, I feel that there is never too much information or too many photos.

 

As to myself, I am not a dealer, just a (63) year old kid that loves muscle cars. For my work, I recently retired from managing a Correctional Facility here in Maine having worked there for just shy of (40) years. I am also a respected member of my community. I mention this only because of the value of this car and so that prospective buyers will have some idea as to whom they are dealing with. Also, please check out my eBay feedback which is 100% with (1,033) transactions. Many of those transactions were been muscle cars having personally owned over 65 muscle car era "pieces of art" since the 70's which I have sold to individuals all over the country as well as Canada, England, Switzerland and Australia.

                                                                                                                                                                           

Let’s start with a quiz about the year 1970 to test your memory.

·       Who was the President?                                   

·       Who won the World Series?        

·       What was the Motor Trend Car of the Year?

Answers??

·       President:                              Richard Nixon

·       World Series Champs:          Baltimore Orioles

·       Motor Trend Car of the Year:        That’s right, the Ford Torino

So let’s get this out of the way up front. The 1970 Ford Torino was an excellent car on its own. Add the Cobra, Ram Air and 4-Speed options. Then order the super popular Calypso Coral paint, and you have a true classic muscle car.

                                                                                                                                                                           

Some brief history on the Torino Cobra:

In 1970 Ford introduced the Torino Cobra. Replacing the willing but aged 428-cid V-8 was a new 429-cid mill. This was not the semi-hemi Boss 429 engine, but a fresh design with thin-wall construction and canted-valve heads. The 429 Cobra Jet was rated at a whopping 370 horsepower right out of the box, with probably additional horsepower (not reported) added when ordered with the "ram air" shaker hood with functional air scoop. This was basically a SportsRoof Torino GT in fighting trim, with exposed headlamps, blackout hood, and available muscle-car touches like rear-window slats and fat Polyglas F60x15s on seven-inch-wide Magnum 500 wheels. Standard equipment included a Hurst-shifted, competition suspension with staggered rear shocks, and Cobra insignia.

·       429 CID 4V 8-Cylinder Engine;

I have been using the Hagerty Valuation tool for some time now and feel it is the best tool out there for accurate, current prices. The editorialization of Hagerty’s pricing data is conducted by a host of contributors, but it is all filtered through independent appraiser and senior ASA member David H. Kinney. Kinney is a renowned market expert who writes regular columns for AUTOMOBILE, AutoWeek, Hagerty, and Octane magazines, and contributes to the New York Times. He is deeply involved in the hobby, judging at events, attending dozens of auctions annually, routinely buying and selling cars, and appraising hundreds of vehicles per year. The prices reported on the Hagerty Valuation Tools are the product of Kinney’s market expertise.

 

Hagerty Values as of the 1970 Torino Cobra 429/370HP car as of August 2013

 

Condition 4:       $31,000     Daily driver with flaws and poor paint in FAIR condition.

Condition 3:       $45,300     Some of #4 issues balanced by some better areas. GOOD condition.

Condition 2:       $63,100     Could be former #1 cars that have aged. EXCELLENT condition.

Condition 1:       $79,300     The best in the world. CONCOURS condition.

 

As an FYI, the average price of a number 2 condition 1970 Torino Cobra 429/370HP car has jumped $2,500 in the last 4 months. The market is on an upswing.

                                                                                                                                                                           

For your consideration is this outstanding 1970 Ford Torino Cobra. Last inspected in 1985 with very few miles added since then. The gentleman I purchased the car from, himself purchased the Cobra from an elderly gentleman in New Jersey in 2004. Since the day the car was purchased, the previous owner has kept the Cobra stored in underground heated storage. Upon purchasing the car, he also had the entire clutch assembly replaced to include the clutch, pressure plate, and throw-out bearing. Also, prior to selling the Cobra to me, the gentleman had the car re-painted, had the Barrett Jackson Tu-Tone Satin Black Hood Treatment laid down, replaced the hood locks, starter solenoid, voltage regulator, master cylinder, battery, wipers, air filter, spark plugs, rotor, distributor cap, and a fresh oil change.

Since I have owned the Torino, I have installed the original steel wheels and original Ford dog dish caps, installed original Ford authorized correct chrome exhaust tips, mounted new bias ply redline tires on the original rims, replaced the temperature sending unit, installed a set of almost new Flowmaster mufflers, added an aftermarket antenna, lowered the rear leaf spring shackles, installed new pins, bushings and springs in both doors, replaced the front and rear main transmission bearings, reinstalled the reverse lockout rod to make it functional, reconnected the reverse lights switch to also make them functional again and had my body man buff out the Calypso Coral paint.

Be assured, as with all of the cars that I sell, this Torino Cobra is an outstanding car and there will be no disappointments or hidden issues.

                                                                                                                                                                  

So you don’t have to ask me to show you, and so you don’t have to find this important data yourself; here is the critical decode information that you will want to read and study, with corresponding photos to confirm their authenticity.

FYI, I always burn a CD of everything that I have documented on the car both statistical and visual and give the CD to the new owner.

My Comments:  Are you serious! Just try to find another 1970 Torino Cobra that is as original (body & drivetrain), basically rust free, has a REAL Buildsheet, REAL factory Ram Air, REAL factory desirable Calypso Coral exterior color, REAL factory bench seat 4-speed combination (believed to be less than 100 produced.) and I’ll show you a REAL muscle car that is REAL money in the bank.

                                                                                                                                                                  

 

As with all of the cars that I sell on eBay, the easiest way for a prospective buyer to get a sense for my cars is with tons of information and loads of photos and a video. Also, feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to answer them and respond ASAP.

Undercarriage: As you can see in the tons of photos, this Cobra’s undercarriage is in very good, basically rust free condition. The exhaust system appears to be the original with the x-pipe. I removed what I believe was the original mufflers and replaced them with newer flowmasters and added the Ford Authorized exhaust tips.

Interior: Virtually 100% original. Perfect dash top and very nice dash gauge area. Very nice front and rear door panels. Package tray is very nice. No rips or tears in the headliner. The carpet I was told is original and in good condition. Good original sill plates. All original seat belts in very good condition. There is a set of non-original front and rear floor mats.

Electrical: All exterior lights are in working order to include the headlights, tail lights, running lights, blinkers, plate light and the backup lights. The interior dash cluster lights work but are dim and may need a few back of the dash bulbs replaced. The overhead light works. The fuel gauge, temperature gauge, horn, cigarette lighter, heater and wipers all work. The factory optional Stewart Warner oil pressure and amp gauges work. The original AM radio is in place but does not work.

 

Mechanical: The speedometer works. The reverse steering wheel lockout works. The power steering, drum brakes and emergency brake all work correctly. The suspension is very good with functional vintage Hurst air shocks. The Cobra starts, shifts and drives down the road great with absolutely no issues.

Trunk: The trunk is in excellent condition with the original trunk mat. Also it has the original spare wheel rim with a very cool vintage “Grab N Go” tire mounted. It has the complete and original jack assembly. The trunk still has the original cardboard quarter fillers to keep the trunk mat flat. And finally, there are three original factory stickers on the trunk lid. Minor issues in the lower quarter panel trunk areas. (See photos.)

NHTSA investigating Ford Fiesta for faulty door latches

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 17:00:00 EST

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened a preliminary investigation on the 2011-2013 Ford Fiesta because the regulator has received 61 complaints from drivers, including one claim of an injury, about the doors on the subcompacts failing to latch and sometimes even flying open while driving. NHTSA has estimated that the problem could affect as many as 205,000 vehicles.
NHTSA is still gathering further data about the problem, but looking at the complaints so far, both front and rear doors appear to be potentially involved with the alleged failures. Among the reports, there are 12 claiming that the door opened while driving. Several also indicate the "Door Ajar" warning illuminating during this problem. The one purported injury happened when someone attempted to shut the door, and it bounced back.
Ford spokesperson Kelli Felker told Autoblog via email, "We are cooperating with NHTSA on this investigation, as we always do." Scroll down to read the report from NHTSA.

Rolling footage of the 2015 Ford Mustang hits YouTube [w/video]

Thu, 26 Dec 2013 16:28:00 EST

Just in time for the holidays: Ford took the 2015 Mustang to Route 66 to cook up rolling footage, and we've been given some of the leftovers ahead of the meal. There are no burnouts, no donuts, no revving, and thankfully, no music. It's just two minutes and 26 seconds of the new pony car running free in the desert.
So in case you needed more visualizing help, the video below will help you start imagining how you'll look in your 2014 Christmas present to yourself...

A closer look at the 2015 Ford F-150

Thu, 16 Jan 2014 12:30:00 EST

Despite having to share Ford's Detroit Auto Show stand with the hot new 2015 Mustang, the brand-new F-150 was arguably an even more important debut. Why? Ford moved some 700,000 examples of its F-Series truck in 2012, making it not only the best-selling pickup truck, but the top-selling vehicle in the US, by a long-shot.
The 2015 F-150 raises the bar for pickup trucks in a big way, with big-time use of aluminum. Because of this, roughly 700 pounds have been removed from the truck's overall weight, making it even more efficient than before, while still offering all of the capability that pickup owners expect. And with a host of engines under the hood, including a new 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, the 2015 F-150 will surely offer something for everyone.
During the Detroit Auto Show, west coast editor Michael Harley took a closer look at the new F-150, talking to some of the truck's engineers. Have a look at the full video, below.
