1970 Ford Torino Super Cobra Jet

posted in: Muscle cars | 0

Even though Ford Torino Cobra wasn’t as powerful as some other rivals, it was still a decent muscle car and strong enough on the road. The new 1970-1971 Torino was lower, wider, and longer with beautiful aerodynamic lines. 1970 saw the introduction of the 351 Cleveland engines in the Torino as well as the new 429 Thunder Jet, Cobra Jet, and Super Cobra Jet engine options. The top option of the 429 cubic engine was the 429 Super Cobra Jet which developed 375 HP. A regular 429 gained Super Cobra Jet [SCJ] name when the “Drag pack” was ordered. It required 3.91:1 or 4.30:1 axle ratio and included 4-bolt engine block, forged pistons, oil cooled, Holley carburetor and optional Ram Air induction which made no difference in power ratings.
