In the late ’60s and early ’70s, Ford was spraying some of its muscle cars in beautiful colors that are still good looking today. One of those colors was Grabber Green, and the 1970 Ford Torino Cobra Sportsroof in the images here wears that green paint very well. This car received a meticulous nut and bolt restoration and is one of 7,675 produced that year.
The restoration happened in 2016, and since then, the seller says that it has had very few miles put on it. While the car is a numbers matching ride, the Grabber Green hue that looks so good on it wasn’t the original color. It was originally pastel blue. According to the seller, the 1970 Ford Torino Cobra Sportsroof has no evidence of body panel replacement or patches.
The Ram Air Shaker hood has gloss black applied to the center section. During the restoration, all the chrome and stainless-steel parts where replaced. All the glass and weather stripping appears to be new. Inside the car is a black interior that looks like new with no tears in the seats or cracks in the dash. Both the headliner and the carpet look brand new. There are a couple of blemishes on the driver’s side door panel.
The car has its original steering wheel from 1970, and all the gauges work. The only thing inside the car not working is the AM/FM stereo in the dash. Under the hood sits a fully restored and painted 429 Cobra Jet Big Block that has been rebuilt to stock with no performance upgrades. The engine and transmission have matching serial numbers. One potential downside for a buyer is that there is no paperwork on the restoration. There is a full photo album that shows the restoration in process. Another non-functional item on the car is the power steering, the current currently uses manual steering. The seller is asking $64,900. Check out this 1969 Ford Torino Talladega.
