1978 Ford Mustang King Cobra II


Production was around 4300 units for this car and many were junked for lack of value after their drivetrain’s were removed.
The series 2 is gaining interest and this car is most likely one of the best examples around.
Wikipedia: By many respects the Mustang II was heavily under appreciated, being the first Mustang that was V8 powered to have a rack and pinion steering front end, a fact that did not go unnoticed by hot rodders who harvested these cars by the thousands to put under cars and trucks with a less desirable front suspension geometry.
The quality interior was comfortable, with modern options such as a center console, bucket seats, full gauge cluster, map light and sporty handling and trim packages which were superior to the offerings of other auto manufacturers.
Of course, this explains why the Mustang II outsold its competition in its class by 2 to 1 and most by much larger margins.
“Many Mustang enthusiasts disdained the Mustang II as an aberration, not a ‘real’ Mustang. It was, however, a product of its time, and many find it a highly desirable collectible today as a quality built car in an era of mediocrity.”[16] While lack of parts vendor support has made keeping mustang IIs on the road in original condition, the Mustang II is increasing in popularity among collectors, “it as a historically significant car and a decent performance in its day at that” with “the 1978 Mustang II King Cobra is one ’70s era Ford that deserves a spot in the enthusiast’s garage.”[29]
