My Car Story with Lou Costabile 1978 Ford Mustang Cobra II
On "My Car Story" we're in South Barrington IL at The Arboretum of South
Barrington Cruise Night on 8-13-14.
We're looking at a 1978 Ford Mustang Cobra II.
The car's Owner is Dave Shellenberger. He’s had the car since 2009. He
wanted a car that was unique and after watching an episode of Charlie’s
Angels, he saw a Mustang
Cobra II and wanted to get one, and here it is.
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!
