1969 Ford Torino Talladega

The 1969 Ford Torino Talladega was one of the early NASCAR aero cars, designed to be as aerodynamic for sustained high-speed racing. The production-examples of the 1969 Ford Torino Talladega were built to essentially the same specifications with a few minor differences. The cars were fitted with the Ford 428 Cobra Jet, a 428 cubic inch (7.0 liter) V8.  The amount of power produced by the car is a hotly debated topic, the factory claimed that the car made 335 hp, however it was commonplace to under-report power figures to keep insurance companies and government regulators happy. It’s believed that the cars were really making at least 400 hp, probably somewhere in the 450 hp range.
