LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1970 Ford Torino Cobra Jet
In 1968 Ford introduced the mid-sized Torino to replace the aging Fairlane, which stayed in production until 1976. It was offered in many configurations beginning with a two-door fastback or convertible, four-door sedan or station wagon, hardtop, and as finally Ranchero pickup. It could be ordered as a luxury cruiser, family wagon, or muscle car configuration. The Torino was also a major contender on the NASCAR circuit and in 1969; Ford introduced the Torino Talladega version. This limited-edition vehicle was given a more aerodynamic body style which
they then used to compete with the famous wing cars from Mopar.
