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.
I gotta be honest with you guys…I don’t know what I’m looking at with this next car. It is advertised as being a ’78 Mustang with a V10 that was a multi-time show winning SEMA vehicle, and a Optima Ultimate Street Challenge Car and the photos show several different configurations, one with a finished car like this 2014 MustangsandFords article, but then the pictures change to what can only be described as a hulk of dissasembled parts waiting for a barn to be stored for the inevitable 20 years of rust and chicken poop it needs to be a barn find. I love the idea of a Mustang II with custom styling, a full Chebby Corbette C5 Z06 suspension, custom everything, and Triton V10…but I don’t know if that’s what you’ll get as the winner of this next auction. Find this 1978 Ford Mustang V10 custom bidding for $12,100 reserve-not-met with a few hours to go, located in Beaverton, OR via ebay.
This next car comes from tipper Zach who writes: It was <not> the best of times. I don’t know what you’d do with this thing. A modern ecoboost monster of some sort? Cram a 302 in and just saunter? Grab the drivetrain from a Prius and don’t amaze your friends? At least you can feel […]
Ford introduced the Dick Nesbitt designed Mustang II on the subcompact Pinto platform for the 1974 model year and it was a smash hit. The little rack-and-pinion (a first on a Stang) steered machine sold 385,000 units in its first year of production, which was almost as much as the original ’65 Mustang and approx […]
