Introduction



1978 saw the introduction of the King Cobra Mustang II. The King Cobra package was offered only with the four-speed manual transmission and featured a better suspension with front and rear stabilizer bars, the 302 V8 with a Variable Venturi Carbureator, Goodyear P195/70R13 radial tyres, and a wild paint and graphics appearance package.

Most King Cobras were built in Bright Red, although technically any regular Mustang II colour was available. The King Cobra package (at a cost of US$1,277.00) pushed the price of a Mustang II from a base of US$4,088.00 to over US$6,800.00

To add to the excitement, Ford also teamed up with Monroe Shocks to create a total of eight show cars, known collectively as the "Monroe Handler."

Featuring wild custom bodywork and numerous handling upgrades, these show cars generated a great deal of excitement for the Mustang II.

This would be the last year for the Mustang II. An all new Mustang was to debut in 1979, modeled after Volkswagen's Rabbit. Appropriately, it would be Ford's fox.
