Although no expert, the Torino was completely redesignd for 1970, was its own model line, instead of an option on the Fairlane, and was awarded Motor Trends "Car of the Year". The model line included station wagons, a Torino 500, a Brougham, the GT and the Cobra.
The GT was more of an upscale touring car and came standard with a 351. The Cobra was Fords answer to the Roadrunner and came standard with an N code 429 Thunderjet which I believe was rated at 360hp. Either car could be upgraded to a 429 Cobra Jet (CJ) Motor and the top dog was a CJ with a drag pack (3:91 or 4:30 rear) added to it which updgraded the engine to a Super Cobra Jet (SCJ) and I believe the hp was rated at 375.

A popular performance option was the ram air shaker assembly.
And yes, I have a soft spot inmy heart for them as well...
