DESIGN HISTORY: 1970 was the first year for the legendary 429 Cobra Jet motor. Ford's published horsepower rating was 370 HP deliberately understating the true 405 HP due to pressure brought on all the car manufacturers by insurance companies and new government EPA laws helping to bring about the demise of the muscle car era.
A piece of 429 trivia: Ford had to turn to GM to design a carburetor large enough to handle its new Ford engine and still meet the recently enacted EPA laws, hence the reason there is a GM Rochester Delco Carburetor on all 1970 429's instead of the usual Holley found on most Ford engines.
