One year before the all-new ’79 Mustang, Ford introduced the ’78 Mustang II King Cobra as a last-minute Mustang sales stimulator. We like the ’78 King Cobra for its unique features that made it a stand-alone model during a unique chapter in Mustang history.
This car made a lot of impact on the automotive industry. It had made the“screaming chicken” found on the hoods of the Pontiac trans-arms era seem settled. Then there was the interior that made it seem dazzling, all metal and almost ready for the Mad max if adjusted slightly. It had one of the best features as it only came with a V8 and most other carrying the V6 and 14s, that’s some pretty big achievement don’t you agree?
