Revell 1970 Torina Cobra Twister Special!

Recommended Posts

Beautiful looking builds. Very cleanly built and well detailed. I never knew the story behind these marketing packages until I moved to this area 20 years ago. Sort of like the "California Special" Mustangs from that era but for the Kansas Market area.

Great build. Love the color. My first car was a yellow 1970 Torino GT with a 351C four barrel.

My brother had a friend that has a 71 Torino GT with a shaker! It was a nice car!

The California Specials were mostly spoilers and side scoops and a side stripe like the Shelby models of the time. I think the base engine was a 289 2 bbl.

Yes. I have a resin Mini Exotics kit of one! It needs a lot of clean up.
