Ford Torino Cobra Snake 1971 Emblem Long Sleeve T-Shirt
By 1970, the new Torino was influenced by the “Coke bottle style”. inspired by supersonic aircraft to produce this style. The 1970 model Torino was longer, wider, and lower. The roof starts high at the windshield, but slopes back into the Sportsroof rear treatment, which splits the difference between fastback and formal-roof with a single unbroken line that goes from the top of the rear window to the rear quarter caps, before they flip into a small aerodynamic trunk lip. Despite this, the 1970-'71 Torino Sportsroof is actually less aero-friendly than the car it replaced. Granted, engine and performance options had gotten half a decade hairier as well. The Torino Cobra, not to be confused with the Cobra Jet engine that it could optionally pack, or the lightweight two-seat Shelby Cobra roadster, was Ford's top-of-the-line Torino when the new body style debuted for 1970. Standard-issue was the 360hp Thunderjet 429 with two-bolt mains, 2.09/1.65 valves, 10.5:1 compression and a 600-CFM Autolite on top. That car carried over to '71 with most options intact, though the standard Cobra engine was downgraded to the 10.7:1 compression, 285hp 351 Cleveland four-barrel--probably to placate the insurance goons who made sure that insurance rates were as stiff as car payments. For roughly 10 percent of a Torino Cobra's cost (or $374, in 1971 money), you could opt into the 429CJ engine. Your cash earned you a powerplant sporting a 700-CFM GM Rochester carb, slightly smaller combustion chambers, 2.24/1.72 valves, a compression bump to 11.3:1 and stronger main-bearing webbing. The Torino was heavier for the year 1970 however it still held on with strong performance. Motor Trend tested a 1970 Torino Cobra that included a Ram Air 370 hp, 429 Cobra Jet, C-6 automatic, and 3.50:1 rear axle. After testing this model, they stated “The weight obviously helped traction, as it was fairly easy to accelerate away from a standing start with only a modicum of wheelspin.”
