Mustang II fans - here's a good one
#1
Hey I remember Hot Rod or similar magazine article
on a Mustang II Mach I. I remember the owner was a pilot
and wanted a powerful new Mustang so he had a big block
shoehorned in there.

Cool - isn't the internet great - found website with reference to the car (motor by Roush) >>>

I had a 78 with the 302 in it. Same as the king cobra without all the stickers. The ass-end of that car was so light, it would sit there and cook the tires off of it !!!! All done with a whopping 139h.p. Tongue It was a really fun car when I was 18. It didn't go very fast but the burn outs were cool. I remember turning the air cleaner lid upside down so it sounded like it was really screaming down the roadCool

Thats a sweet mustang II!!!! Got to take my nephews mustang II for a ride last weekend and its just a little 4 banger and it will sit there and smolder the tires! We are looking at getting a 2.3 turbo motor out of a Thunderbird. That would definately wake that thing up. Heres a pic of it. We were gonna go with white with blue stripes, but decided to go blue with the white stripes.
