Rob's 429 SCJ Powered Torino GT

1970 Ford Torino GT, powered by a 429 Super Cobra Jet with C-6 auto and 3.91 "track loc" rear end. She is one of only 241 factory equipped "Drag pack" GT fastbacks made that year. Key features includ, hide-away head lights, shaker, magnum 500 rims, louvers, front spoiler and laser stripes. Other factory options include tach, AM radio, dual rear speakers and light group. My best ET to date is 13.1 sec. @107 mph...Not bad for a 4200 pound pavment ripper!

Back when my SCJ was rebuilt. Almost 10 years ago..... And still running strong!

Thanks!... That is one hell of a great looking GT you have! Drag Pack GT, Non-Ram Air ''C'' code with auto on the column, my guess is not many came that way! Did you get your Marti report? I'd love to have numbers! PS: Good luck trying to find the other 239 left, my guess is more than half were abused and are long gone! ;)

My guess would be, all the ones in the wreck yards are all long crushed. Since these rare beast hit collector car status, no one has sent one to the junk yards since the 80's. I would think that all the ones left to roth (if you can find some) are not SCJs.

OK, you got me...that is an AWESOME ride. Love the color and those stripes!

Thanks, Known as Lazer stripes, these were a factory option exclusively offered on the Torino GT in 1970. Actually my car was restored to look factory original, though the hide-away headlight option was added later on. Great lookin' 70 Javelin you have there! We don't see many of those still around!
