Unfortunately, the King Cobra never saw production because of executive shakeup at Ford and due to NASCAR changing the homologation rules. The 1970 Ford Torino King Cobra 429 stemmed from a brief period of NASCAR in 1969 and 1970 when aerodynamics became the key factor for going faster on the ovals.

Ford powered the King Cobra with a 429 cubic-inch 7.0 liter Boss big-block V8 engine, producing whooping 700 horsepower. This particular King Cobra also is equipped with a 4-speed manual and Hurst shifter on top, Ford 9-inch rear end with 3.50 gear ratio, power brakes and Goodyear Eagle 1 tires.
