You are looking at an extremely rare Factory “C” Code 429 Cobra Jet Torino. This Cobra is fitted with 1 of 2 surviving prototype King Cobra front ends. The only other known surviving front end is on racing legend Bud Moore’s own King Cobra. The restoration was just completed and both the engine and transmission have been rebuilt for performance and durability. Special Care was taken to preserve the imperfections on the front end. The car has been completely repainted in Candy Apple Red paint inside and out. The undercarriage was stripped and repainted in Red Oxide. The chrome was sent to Art Brass Plating for a show quality restoration. The stainless was professionally polished and looks amazing. The glass was all removed and professionally polished. The windshield was replaced. The interior features its original door panels and dash pad. The carpet, headliner and package tray were replaced due to wear and the interior looks incredible. The original speedometer has been replaced with a Very Rare NOS 140mph Police unit, these units when found bring around $3,000. The original instrument cluster bezel has been replated and looks amazing. The Rim Blow steering wheel was also professionally restored. This is a show ready interior with factory upholstery! The original engine and transmission have been rebuilt and still retain their original VIN stamps. The engine has been upgraded with a larger camshaft and the cylinder heads have been ported. A shift kit was added to the transmission rebuild. A reproduction exhaust kit with an up-sized 2 1/2″ pipe and higher flowing mufflers looks stock, but helps this Cobra Jet make the power and sound to back up its NASCAR heritage. The steering and suspension have all been restored as well. New suspension components in the factory finish, ready for the under-car show cam! The Magnum 500 wheels are 15×7 in the front & 15×8 in the rear. New BF Goodrich Radial T/A’s with 246 60 Front & 275 60 in the rear. They fit perfectly and do not rub. Just in case the need ever arose, the alignment specs were set so this car can stretch its legs. With 4 degrees of positive caster and 3/4 degree of negative camber this car exudes confidence at 60 on the highway. You can truly feel the car start to settle down and the aerodynamics start to work.
