MotoeXotica Classic Cars found another “heavy” car from those “mod” times of pads, flower and American muscle car power! We are proud to present this very rare four on the floor Indian Fire Q-code 428 Big Block 1969 Ford Torino Cobra fastback fitted with more options such as power front disc brakes and factory tachometer. According to the attached Deluxe Marti Report this is only 1 of 9 Torino’s to be produced in this exact performance configuration, very rare indeed! We also have the very hard to find Ford original line sheet for this exact Torino!
Finished in a rare Indian Fire (code Y) exterior with a black cloth/vinyl bench seat (code 1A), this car’s paint and trim are in very good condition, as are the glass panels. The windows are clear and intact. The car’s quad headlights and bisected taillights are also in very good shape. This Torino Cobra rolls power front disc brakes and Hercules H/P 4000 tires, size 235/60R15, and surrounding factory alloy wheels with center spinners. This Ford has straight and solid body panels and the engine bay is tidy and the battery appears new. The Ford’s bumpers are shiny and in good shape.
Under the hood is a desirable big block 428 CID V-8 Cobra Jet (code Q) non-ram air engine (date code correct) with a four-barrel carburetor and a 10.6:1 compression, breathing through dual exhausts and mated to a close-ratio, four-speed manual transmission with a 2.32 first gear (code 6) and a 3.50:1 (code A) rear end.
Inside, the black, split-folding front and rear vinyl bench seats are in very good condition, as is the matching black carpet. The matching black headliner is in good order and the black instrument panel with its four circular gauge pods matches the rest of the interior nicely but the wipers are inoperable. In addition, there are aftermarket ammeter and oil gauges mounted under the instrument panel. The factory, two-spoke steering wheel with attached horn bar looks good, as do the inner door panels. The mirror glass and shift lever are in good order. Rounding out the interior is a Philco AM radio.
Built at Ford’s Kansas City, Kansas assembly plant on December 20, 1968, two days behind schedule, the car was delivered to the Pacific Northwest. It left the factory with the following options – F70X14 wide oval belted white sidewall tires, power front disc brakes, an AM radio and a tachometer. Eventually, the car landed at Damerow Ford Co. in Beaverton, Oregon, which is still in business today. The car was sold on January 13, 1969.
