Mustang II: The Unsung Hero -- Mustang Countdown
Forty years ago this fall, Ford introduced an all-new second generation Mustang. At 19 inches shorter
and 500 pounds lighter than the 1973 model it replaced, it was a radical
departure. Mustang II was
more of a return to the premise of the original 1965 model, light, nimble
and affordable. While many performance fans derided the Mustang II, it arrived just in time
for the first big oil price spike as well as new emissions control and
safety regulations. It certainly wasn't a muscle car and didn't even have a
V8 engine in the first year on sale. But it was the right Mustang for the time and nearly
400,000 customers agreed in 1974, the highest sales since 1966. Without the
success of Mustang II, the
line may well have gone extinct in the 1970s. Today, Mustang II is seeing a resurgence as
enthusiasts see the lightweight, nimble platform as a good starting point
for a fun performance machine with engine, suspension and brake upgrades.
In this episode of Mustang
Countdown, Ford Racing's John Clor extolls the virtues of his favorite Mustang.

Not been actually Dynoed to find out, nor have I
been to the track to know a quarter time yet
ran the car this last weekend (10/19/08) in the 1/8th. only run 2 passes
with a best time of 9.824. The biggest problem I had was traction. I spun
through 1st and 2nd gear, and got to 3rd at the end of the track and spun a
little again. One of this winters projects will be to install a locker of
some sort. Next will be bigger tires.
*Update 7/21/10* Finally got new wheels and tires and a locker, but went
ahead and upgraded the ring and pinion while I was at it. It now wears
165/80-15's in the front, 265/50-15's in the rear on Summit brand Weld
Draglite style wheels with a Detroit Locker and 4.62's. Hopefully soon I
will put together another video with everything included....
Allan Klingler's 1976 Ford Cobra II
A little well deserved attention at the 2009 Bonneville Car Show for Allan
Klingler's 1976 Ford Mustang Cobra II. The car is an
original V8 Cobra II model with a fresh restoration including some power
upgrades. Its a fine example of the great things this model represented.
The Mustang II was voted as
Car of the Year by Car & Driver Magazine, something only earned one other
time in over 45 years of Mustang production. While many
people acuse the Mustang II
of being unpopular, the reverse was true. In the years since then, only
once has any model year surpassed the annual sales volume than those
generated by the Mustang
II. Clearly its smaller size and overall design shows a Mustang that is true to its roots
with a broad appeal to the sporty youth market. The arguement could be
made that with its rack and pinion V8 front suspension system way ahead of
its time, its success caused the II front ends to be among the most highly
coveted automotive upgrade parts among hotrodders everywhere. As a result,
relatively few survive today since their parts are under a generation of
street rods which lacked its multiple benefits. This is in spite of over
1.2 million models being produced, something never achieved in any other
run of production run with the Mustang before or since. It is a
well documented fact documented by Ford's own advertising campaigns that
the Mustang II outsold the
competition models by a good number of the other models combined. Some of
the finer points of this car include a dual three chamber flowmaster custom
Exhaust, four barrel carburator and
intake, positrack rear end, high performance cam, heads, and internals on
the short block, and a 100 shot of Nitrous. While this car looks exceptional inside
and out, don't let its stock appearance fool you. With a great power plant
in such a light body car, this one can run with the best of the muscle cars
out there. Loaded with many interior popular factory options, Allan's car
is a fine example of the flagship Mustang II submodel in that period of
