Nicest of the Worst: 1977 Ford Mustang II

Look, I get it. Somebody out there loves the Mustang II. Possibly more than one person. But the Mustang II was such a kick in the nuts to the Pony car lover when it was released in 1974. People try and sugar coat it — oh, it was the right car for the right time, but let’s not mix metaphors here. It was the worst Mustang of all time (at least until the Mach-E.) And don’t try to confuse the fact that enthusiasts put the Mustang II rack and pinion (and other M2 parts) into many hot rods — it’s not like any mother ever said “I love my son, he’ll make a great organ donor some day.” No…the Mustang II could be nuked from the history of the automobile and we’d all be better for it…but…BUT…if I had to drive a Mustang II…gun-to-my-head…I’d drive this next thing. Find this 1977 Ford Mustang II with 351W offered for $12,500 in Milford, WA via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
