Thought the Cobra Jet designation was exclusive to the 429. True?

72Mike,

Incorrect. But a very common misconception.

The following is pretty accurate

see my cut & paste from Wikipedia:

Q-code (Cobra-Jet)The Q-code "351 Cobra Jet" version was produced from May 1971 through the 1974 model year. It was a low-compression design that included open-chamber "4V" heads, a special intake manifold, special hi-lift long duration hydraulic camshaft, special valve springs and dampers, a 750 CFM 4300-D Motorcraft Carburetor, dual-point distributor, and 4-bolt main bearing caps. It was rated at 280 bhp (209 kW; 284 PS) for all 1971 applications; 266 hp (198 kW) (SAE net) for 1972 when installed in the Mustang and 248 hp (185 kW) in the Ford Torino and Mercury Montego. The horsepower rating dropped in 1973 to 246 hp (183 kW) for the 4-barrel for the intermediate Fords, and still retained the higher 266 hp (198 kW) rating in the Mustang. The 351 CJ (now referred to simply as the "351 4V") was rated at 255 hp (190 kW) in 1974 and was only installed in the Ford Ranchero, Ford Torino, Mercury Montego and the Mercury Cougar

Yo Ray, that was the best thing Ive read for a long time. But that tells you how much I read, LMAO.
OK, So let's look at this. 69 had like, wait, this is incredible...Ford had 10 model Mustangs that were available in 69.(Coupe, GT coupe (I have one), convertible, GT convertible, Mach 1, Fastback, Fastback GT, Boss 302, Boss 429, Oops, did I forget the Cobra Jet? Isn't that why I writing this? Right. OK, so 70 had like 3 less, but they had they Cobra-Jet 428. 71 had what? coupe, sport coupe (I have an original, and its more than 90% original), convertible, fastback, mach 1, Boss 351. Was the 429 considered a cobra jet? MAIN Question; did the 71 have a Cobra-Jet model? I know I forgot something.
