It took a while for buyers to accept the Mustang II. It was nearly 12 inches shorter than the original Mustang, it was never available as a full convertible and it didn't have the performance of its illustrious predecessors. In five years of production the most powerful engine listed was a 139bhp 302c in, V8. The fuel crisis only made things worse. However, by the mid-1970s it became a more popular car, especially the high-performance variants which young American aspired to. Today they still have their original appeal. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, new model introductions, technical and specification data, driving impressions. Models covered include: Mach 1, Ghia, 302 V8, Cobra II, Kemp Cobra II, Cobra II Starga, T-Top, King Cobra.
