What Is the Mustang Cobra II?Last Updated November 13, 2020
The Cobra II Mustang package was introduced in 1975 as a response to the end of the oil crisis and an attempt by Ford to have a true contender to the muscle car throne. The Cobra II package was available on the 4-cyl, V6, and V8 fastback models.
First introduced in a Ford line in 1962, the Cobra name became synonymous with power and performance. The Mustang Cobra, the apex of performance, came to an end in the early 1980s only to have a rebirth in 1993. CJ's takes a look back at the origins of the Mustang Cobra and what the future might have in store for this iconic muscle car.
The special edition 7-Up Mustang was an unofficial commemoration of the Ford Mustang's 25th Anniversary. Originally produced to be given away at the 1990 NCAA finals, these special edition Mustangs were fast and stylish. The 7-Up Mustangs were unique with a Deep Emerald Green paint and white leather interior.
In the late '60s and early '70s, if you wanted a more luxurious performance sports car, then the Mustang Grande was for you. Produced during the last half of the Mustang's first-generation, the Mustang Grande featured a wood trim, smoother ride, and more sound-deadening materials.
