1970 Ford Torino Cobra Diecast

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.



Some of my first and strongest memories from my childhood relate to cars. I still remember when things happened based on what car I was driving at the time. I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I was a Corvette fanatic for years but then re-discovered vintage American Muscle. My wife, Katrina, and I decided we wanted to focus on unique and rare muscle cars. After a lot of research we fell in love with the Ford Blue Oval Aero Cars. These were only built in 1969 and and aerodynamics became an important part of winning races. The only purpose of these limited production cars was to win NASCAR races using the 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. This site is devoted to these car and their owners past and present. We provide an Online Registry for recording the long term history and ownership of every remaining Talladega, Spoiler and Spoiler II.
