In 1970 Ford introduced a new Torino. The all new body would mean that the one year old Talladega, although faster, would not be the current model on the NASCAR tracks. The King Cobra was to be the answer to that problem. However, the King Cobra never made it into production since Ford had pulled out of racing.
As a result we had to settle for a standard Torino Cobra in 1970. We now have available in our online store an 18th Scale version of the 70 Cobra. Shipped to your door the cost is $80.
About the Author: Some of my first memories and strongest memories of my childhood relate to cars. I still remember back when things happened based on what car I was drinving at the time. I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California. I was a Corvette fanatic for years but then discovered vintage American Muscle. My wife, Katrina, and I decided we wanted to focus on a unique and rare muscle car. After a lot of research we fell in love with the Ford Blue Oval Aero Cars. These were only built in 1969 and their only purpose was to win NASCAR races using their Boss 429 and 427 power plants complimented with a special, wind cheating, aerodynamic body. The Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II are terrific and historic cars for sure. This site is devoted to them and their owners past and present.
