Chassis no. 0F05R118928. Grabber Orange with black graphics over black vinyl. 428/360hp Super Cobra Jet, automatic, power steering, power brakes with front disc, spoilers, shaker hood, black deluxe interior, bucket seats with center console, tinted glass, fold down rear seat, rear window slats, Magnum 500 wheels.

Evaluation: Featured in May 2009 issue of Mustang Monthly. One of forty-eight 428 SCJ Twister Special Mustangs built in 1970 and one of 24 with an automatic. Very good paint with little to no signs of use or wear. Mostly clean interior, but the upholstery and carpet seem a little dingy, and the interior’s chrome trim could stand cleaning. Engine bay is detailed thoroughly. A slightly stale restoration of a rare car that could be brought up a level with a thorough detailing in and out.

Bottom Line: This Mustang is mostly collectible for its Super Cobra Jet engine, but being a relatively rare “Twister Special” (marketed specifically to Kansas City) does make it a little more interesting. Nevertheless, this is a staggering price that surprised us. It probably also surprised Mecum (it hammered at nearly twice its low estimate), the seller, and maybe even the buyer after the auction excitement wore off.
