Ebay ads stating cJ or Cobra Jet 351 in a 1973
#11
So after reading all the posts on this thread... am I to assume the seller here is just using the "Cobra Jet" term to make the car out to be something it's not??

That link is for a 1972 with what ford called a CJ or Cobra Jet. It was in 1973 that they just referred to it a 351 4V. So that link is what ford called a Cobra Jet.

73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

Since the Marti has it as a CJ it would be correct. Why would they paint an original car. Took away half the value in my opinion. Only original once. for sure.
I have heard that Ford dropped the CJ Cobra Jet call out late in the 72 model year. Do not know a date for cut off but have heard that.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Secluff said it very well.

But just to offer my 2 cents as clarification - the changeover from Ford calling out the 351 Cleveland 4 barrel engine as a Cobra Jet was about Dec of 71 or Jan of 72.  The air breather lid sticker changed at that time as well; hence Secluff's mention of his 72 Torinos.

I have a build date of 2-2-72 and my original air cleaner lid says 4v on it. I think it says 4v on my Marti report too.

Just curious, John, do you know if you have 2- or 4-bolt mains?

I just had my engine rebuilt so I know for sure it has 4 bolt mains.

Thanks John. I wondered if they kept the Q codes 4-bolt, even though they no longer called them Cobra Jets.

Ya Don, I was wondering the same thing. Was pleasantly surprised that it was still a 4 bolt main, even with all the hp and compression reductions for 72.
