I bought new 78 in 1977, traded in my 69 fastback for it (if you can believe that). Aside from undersized brakes it wasn't a bad car at all. It out cornered almost anything on the road at the time, it always hooked hard and went straight. I used to pick on the Corvette boys a lot cause they hated getting beat by a "Pinto" worse than anybody. Only turned a 17.10 bone stock (105 HP on a chassis dyno) but it didn't stay stock for long.
When done up right, they can even be attractive. Don't knock it till you try it.

A reply for sicksteve on a prior thread.Only one post thus far and ya hit a nerve.look at the others cars of the time during a gas crunch and tell me what car has better styling than the mustang II.None!
When I see those mustangs II's at car shows and drag strips I just have to admire them.

What engine was in that?

Never had my Ghia at the track; it's only a V6 though. Those times sound like the V8 from that era. I'd bet a V6 wouldn't fare as well. Heh.

Yes, I had the 302 2V with a C4. The 4 speeds weren't standing up so I went auto. It was yellow, all shined up in the showroom where I worked at that time and I fell in love with her. She was good to me. My first new car.
