Rotisserie restored. Documented 428 Cobra!

This rare, documented R code Torino Cobra underwent a complete rotisserie restoration less than 300 miles ago. Documented with Marti report.

EXTERIOR: The body was soda blasted bare on a rotisserie. The body is really straight. Look down these long sides and there's not a ripple, it's smooth even along the bottoms. Repainted the original Royal Maroon color and it is polished out with the glass reflection, looks like a maroon mirror. Paint formula is included. It has the Cobra Jet 428 emblems on the hood scoop and Cobra emblems on each fendor. Overall the trim looks really nice. Upfront the moldings, bumper, headlight bezels look new. The grill is good original. Stainless around the windshield and roof was polished. Door handles, 1/4 louvers look rechromed. In back the tail panel is painted black, the trim is good original. The bumper is rechromed, taillights are mint. The door jambs are painted very nicely, the weather strips and sill plates were replaced. New 15 inch chrome Cragar wheels with new Firehawk tires.

INTERIOR: I'm sitting in the car, it is restored very nicely. The seats are reupholstered, cushions feel good. In the center of the bucket seats the console is in real nice condition. It is missing the shift indicator. Dash pad is in nice shape. There is a tachometer neatly installed, and a gauge cluster below. The carpets have been replaced and there is a set of Cobra embroidered mats. It's original seatbelts front and back are present. Overhead has a new headliner, visors and mirror.

It does have upgraded Edelbrock aluminum heads and factory Ford 427 aluminum intake and a 750 Holley carb. All new MSD ignition system including the distributor, coil and wires.

Other details include Autolite radiator hoses, reproduction clamps, washer bottle is hooked up to the squirters, wiper motor, the rubber seal is on the core support, the battery is secured.

Decals and weatherstrip are new.

UNDERSIDE: It was literally put on a rotisserie so the bottom could be thoroughly restored and detailed. The chassis and all the components were completely removed from the bottom of the car. The front end was completely rebuilt and detailed. Has all new ball joints, bushings, shocks, springs etc. The power steering unit was replaced. Sway bars front and back. It has new shocks.
