Progress of my '78 Cobra II. The green and black Cobra is the one my parents bought new. After that its the progress I have made since I bought it. First pictures are from the Craigslist ad. The last pictures are as it curentlly looks.
Testing Angies King Cobra
We installed a new 640 Holley carb and a MSD ignition in Angies 5.0L Roush.
The King now seems to perform a little better. We cruised dowm the Barnett
Highway and over to Burnaby Mountain and then back to the shop. We stopped
at a little parking lot to test the the new carb.
1978 Ford Mustang II King Cobra 289 V8 4 BBL - Nicest I've Seen
I thought you might like a look at this 1978 Ford Mustang II King Cobra. A lot of time
and money has gone into the construction of this one. It's powered by a
healthy 289 V8, topped with all the Shelby Cobra accessories, a polished
intake, and a Holley 4 BBL carb. All that power is being sent throught a
C4 automatic trans with a Hurst shifter. The metallic blue paint is slick,
it has a custom Shelby tri-duct style hood, and it's riding on some
Halibrand knock-off style wheels. The interior looks like new and they
upgraded the stereo with an Amp, aftermarket speakers, and a subwoofer.
This really is the nicest Mustang II I've come across. These
cars are very lightweight as well, so it should move along pretty well with
that 289 under the hood. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking

as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to

1978 Mustang King Cobra Wht
You rarely see a Mustang
II...this is much more rare..a King Cobra version. The last year for Mustang II, the Fox Body Mustangs would rule the roost
for many years starting in 1979. The markings are authentic, and the
condition remarkable! That is particularly hard to achieve, as aftermarket
parts for the Mustang II
are almost non-existent!
