70's Torino

I must say that these beasts have a soft spot in my hart. How many HP do these motors have? What is the top of the line model?

Re: 70's Torino

I've got a 1970 Torino Cobra which is considered the top of the line performance model.
The 429 Thunder Jet engine is the smallest of the performance engines in the Torino Cobra line with only 360 hp.
I am not sure of the performance characteristics of the other 2 engine that have higher performance.
Here is the absolute best http://www.torinocobra.com/main1.htm with lots of information and tons of pictures.

Re: 70's Torino

429 Cobra Jet, most probably. I'll take a leap and say that the 429CJ was the Best Ford Motor Ever(tm)...

Re: 70's Torino

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. For a compariosn of the engines check out the Torino Cobra site: Ford Torino Cobra Main Page
A popular performance option was the ram air shaker assembly.
And yes, I have a soft spot inmy heart for them as well...

Re: 70's Torino

Wikipedia.com goes into great detail on Torino history and model's, I think there were 14 different torinos offered in 70-1.
