For sale is a 1969 Ford Cobra with its original 428 Cobra Jet engine. This car is optioned for a Cobra with bucket seats (with comfort weave upholstery), console, P/S, P/B, A/T, tinted rear window defogger, tach (works), clock and Trak Lok rear axle. The Cobra was painted in factory color, Indian Fire, with a base / clear paint that was wet-sanded and buffed. The odometer on the car reads 87,336 miles and this appears to be correct as the only thing replaced in the interior was the carpet.
The engine is the numbers matching 428 Cobra Jet that was rebuilt using only the best parts and machine work. The engine has been decked, bored .035 and fitted with custom BRC flat top racing pistons, Eagle rods, a BHJ damper. In addition, the engine was internally balanced for smoother operation (read very expensive) and fitted with a Reactor brand SFI approved flexplate. The heads were mildly ported on the intake and stainless intake valves were installed by Aire Research Engineering. The cam is a Crower hydraulic unit with 230-236 duration @ .050 it has a noticeable lope at idle but can be driven daily. The carburetor is the original and still has the original tag. The intake, exhaust manifolds and air cleaner are all original.
The C-6 transmission is the original unit and has the vin # stamped in the case. The transmission has been rebuilt and a Ford Motorsport low gear kit was added with torrington bearings for lower friction. This kit makes first and second gear lower for better acceleration with the nice cruise rpm of this cars 3.00 nodular 31 spline trak lok rear end. The drive train was built with a 'cost is no object' approach for a strong, durable, quick muscle car with factory appearance.
This same 'only the best will do' attitude carried over to the suspension that was rebuilt with almost all NOS Ford components. Noticeable exceptions are the Eibach / Pro Motorsport variable rate front springs and aftermarket shocks. The steering box and p/s control unit were also rebuilt. The exhaust is also new and is 2 1/2 inches with super turbo mufflers.
The Cobra wears 15 x 7 Redline tires with Magnum 500 wheels. Also included in the sale are the factory wheels with reproduction Firestone Wide Oval F 70-14 tires.
While the Cobra is in excellent condition, it is not perfect. The driver's seat has a small rip on the back of the seat and by the seat stop that can be seen only when the seat is leaned forward. The steering wheel has two cracks and the clock works only intermittently, all minor issues.
