The timing for Ford's Mustang II could not have been better. Lee Iacocca felt that the Mustang had grown too large and too fat to fit the original Pony Car concept. So Iacocca went back to the drawing board with an entirely clean slate more compact design. Mustang II sales exploded by 300% and it was honored with Motor Trend Magazine's coveted Car of the Year! New four and six cylinder engines help the Mustang fend off imports during the oil embargo. If not for the Mustang II the entire Pony Car program would have been shelved. By 1978 the last Mustang II rolled off the assembly line. Sporting bold green Cobra billboard stripes, this eye-popping '78 Cobra II is a fitting tribute to the car that saved Mustang!
