Detail about this car by its owner
Up for sale a rare American muscle car offered by owner, similar with Fairlane or Torino styles but the contents of packages is different is more powerful than both, that was called as the Ford Cobra it's highly performance model, it carry a 428 Cobra Jet engine.

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.

Detail about this car by its owner
For sale by owner, with my clear Oregon title in hand, in my name, ready to sign & sell.
NO phone calls or texting!! In order to buy my car, you need to come talk with me in person, see the car with your own eyes, and go for a test drive. That way you won't have any doubts about its overall condition inside & out and/or how well it runs & drives.

Some of the information on my car was given to me by the previous owners, including the paperwork, and, I also had it inspected by a local classic auto restoration shop when I purchased it.

1969 Ford Cobra Fastback. This is not really a Torino, and although the Cobras were made from the Fairlane platform, it's not really a Fairlane either. The "Cobra" is a separate model from the Torino & Fairlane. Many people including the previous owners and even the NADA wrongfully lists them as a "Torino" Cobra, but officially they're not.

I have the MARTI report that verifies it's a REAL Cobra & it's factory options (R-code Ram-Air 428, C6, PS, PDB, AC, Buckets, Traction-Lock, etc). It was sold new at Freeway Ford in Los Angeles California. The VIN is 9K46Rxxxxxx, and according to the info & paperwork from the previous owner, as well as also having it examined by a local auto restoration shop, yes, it still has the Original R-code 428-CJ motor. You are welcome to check any & all numbers when you come see it in person, as well as also look at all the motor receipts & the Marti Report. They only made 11,099 Cobra fastbacks in 1969, this is one of only 1135 ever made with the Candy Apple Red paint & Black interior colors, and is one of only 932 made with Factory Air Conditioning!

One of the previous owners had the motor rebuilt as follows,,
Balanced & blueprinted and bored .40 over. It has the "Super Cobra Jet" mechanical camshaft with solid lifters and 10.5:1 compression. The oil system has been blueprinted, oil passages have been enlarged & flared, and a Nascar Melling high volume & high pressure oil pump, with a Hayden external oil cooler. The oil PSI is at about 100-pounds. There is also an aluminum intake manifold with a Holley 735-CFM carburetor.

When the motor was rebuilt, they also replaced the original 3.00 (Traction Lock) rear axle gears with a new set of 3.89 gears (Traction-Lock), so it is NOT a "Highway" car,, it's geared for short distance, quick acceleration like a Drag-Pack car. It is the correct Candy Apple Red color paint with correct black interior. Aside from the wheels & some aftermarket gauges added to the car, it is still all original. I have the original Magnum 500 wheels, AC compressor, Ram-Air rubber boot for the air cleaner, and the original intake manifold.

It is a very straight, solid, RUST FREE car, including the floors, trunk & undercarriage. Runs very Strong & performs very well. It's NOT a show car, not fully restored, has a few cosmetic flaws including some chips in the paint & some scratches on the back window,, but as you can see in the pictures it is still in very nice condition inside & out,, and attracts LOTS of attention, complements & thumbs up when people see it.

The current NADA values are as follows,, and make sure to add on the options for the 428-CJ motor, air conditioning & Ram-Air.
The Low is - $14,380. Average - $41,100. High - $68,860.

My car is better than Average, but would need some restoring to be a High category car. State Farm looked it over when I bought it, they photographed it, checked the NADA values, then assessed it & insured it at $50K as-is, in it's present condition. I purchased it last summer, drove it around town for a while, then put it into storage for the winter, with plans of it being my summertime cruiser again in 2017. However, I'm now purchasing a newer house, and am selling the Cobra to add the funds to the real estate deal.

I'll sell it for $35K to the first one who can show up in person, so you can see it with your own eyes, and go for a test drive (weather pending). I'm not really interested in any trades, however I might consider taking a 1965 - 1973 Mustang, or a similar Torino, Fairlane, Ranchero in PART trade, but you'll need to offer me lots of cash with it.

As I mentioned above, NO phone calls, I will NOT do business over the phone or through E-mail. I will only deal with real people, in person, face to face, the old fashioned way. The bottom line is, if you want to buy this muscle car, you need to come see it & talk with me in person. Located in the Eugene Oregon area. Thank you.

I will NOT reply to suspected scammers or people who don't seem to understand my ad.
