1969 Ford Torino
The high performance Ford Torino

1969 Ford Torino

In 1969 Ford continued the Torino with the same body lines and model designations as in the previous year. 1969 would be the year that the Torino really came alive as the legendary new Fairlane Cobra was introduced. Not much changed in styling or trim. The Fairlane Torino GT Cobra was a high performance version of the GT series and included the 428 cu. in. V-8 with 335-hp. It had a four-speed manual transmission and F70-14 wide oval tires.
