Ford Fairlane (Torino) Super Cobra Vignale, 1969
Super Cobra is a show car version of the 1969 Fairlane's
"going thing" in performance, the Cobra. It features a unique two-part
grille, a tall, wide shaker airscoop and a louvred backlite. The airscoop is a modification of the Cobra's airscoop, allowing cool, above-the-hood air to rush directly into the air cleaner, giving a power
boost from the engine. The Super Cobra is powered by Ford's 335-horsepower, 428 cubic-inch-displacement Cobra Jet Ram Air engine, a
popular option in the hot new car.

Starting with a 1969 Fairlane, the Super Cobra SportsRoof show car was lowered 2-inches and the front clip was stretched by 8-inches. Concealed headlights, wall-to-wall taillights, black metal louvers, and slant back windshield added to the racy exterior. The high performance 428 cubic inch V-8 engine powered the Super Cobra, and featured a tall shaker air scoop that poked through the hood. Custom interior was finished in candy-murano and hot red to compliment the red exterior.
