  • Three Mustang IIs?

    At the Granite State Mustang show I went to, there were only a total of three Mustang IIs. That’s sad, they really deserve a lot more love than that. Here are two of them:

    '70 Mach 1 - '72 Sprint - '94 F-150 XL -'97 E-150 - '18 Edge SEL AWD

    Sadly ,when they were built, quality wasn't job 1 at Ford. I think they started rusting as soon as the left the building. Wife had a 76 when we got married, a gutless 2.3 in front of a C3 transmission, it wouldn't get out of it's own way. Her Uncle had a 75 with the 2.3 and 4 speed, it did pretty good for what it was. I always wanted one of the Cobra fastbacks with the 302 and 4 speed. Almost bought one a couple of years ago, it needed a few things that were pretty much impossible to find, so I passed on it.

      Sam and I have talked about the II's on several occasions. We both figure that they will be the rarest of Mustangs on the road.
      A lot were used for parts. Especially the front suspension. Just seeing three is a pretty amazing feat. Rarely do I see one at a large show.

        And the 5.0 liter 4 speed cars were pretty fun to drive!

          Jack Roush sure had some fun with a certain silver Mustang II.

            My younger brother had a 1978 Hatchback with the 2.8L V-6 but it had an auto. I looked at a 1976 Cobra II in 1978 that was traded in to the ford dealer that I was working at. It was white with the blue stripes, but for some reason I never purchased it. I enjoyed driving them, I would like one with a 5.0 & a 5 spd.
