(2 photos of a 1977 Polar White Mustang Cobra II Fastback) This Polar White 1977 Mustang II Cobra II fastback is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting September 29, 2013. This Cobra has a 305ci V8 engine and an automatic transmission. The owner says, "I have always been a Ford girl, but this baby gets quite the looks. I am restoring the car this winter, as needs new paint job. As soon as I got her I purchased a Marti Report and came to find out that it is a 1-of-88 with this trim package for the Cobra II for 1977! - Polar white exterior paint, white with Red interior trim colour, and it had only an AM radio that still works. It was built 09/03/1976, so it's an early Motortown conversion Cobra II. I'm always looking for info regarding the Motortown conversion process before Ford took the Cobra II package in-house; it's a special part of Cobra II history!"
(5 photos of a 1977 Black Mustang Cobra II Fastback) Black 1977 Mustang II Cobra II hatchback owned by Mike from Elgin, Illinois, This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting September 22, 2013. It has a 302ci V8 and an automatic transmission. Mike tells us, "I graduated from high school in 1977 and the only two cars that I wanted for my first new car was a Cobra II or a Smokey and the Bandit Trans Am (black and gold of course!). My Dad wouldn't sign a loan for either one (despite our family's fondness for Fords) but he did decide to sign a loan for me to get a 1978 Chevette! Later in life I did buy a triple-black 2000 Mustang GT convertible, which I enjoyed for a number of years. When I saw this Cobra II on ebay three years ago, I threw in a low-ball bid that didn't meet the seller's reserve. I told my wife that we didn't have to worry about getting the car since it didn't meet the auction's reserve, so off to Alaska we went for vacation. Lo and behold, I got an email congratulating me on being the winning bidder for that 1977 Cobra II! I had to tell my wife during our vacation that the car I wasn't supposed to get was now ours, and that I had to coordinate its purchase and pickup from Arkansas. Fortunately a friend of mine lived near the seller, paid for my Cobra II and had a car trailer to pick it up and deliver it to my house, so the car was waiting for me when I got home. Upon seeing the car my wife told me I needed to decide if I was going to keep the Mustang II or a 2000 Corvette that we owned at the time. One look at the Cobra II and a rush of emotions from high school came back and the Corvette was promptly sold a few weeks later. I found that this Cobra II was first sold in Texas and then driven to California where the previous owner bought it and brought it back to Illinois for restoration. I've been working on completing the restoration he had started, and this past winter I tore out the interior, restored all of the panels, replaced the dash (it had been cut apart to mount different radios over the years), and repaired various other items to get it back on the road for the car show season. I purchased a Marti Report and came to find out that it is a 1-of-1 Cobra II for
1977! Not surprising that it's fairly well loaded - except for A/C (Really? Not ordered for an all-black car sold in Texas?) and it had only an AM radio. It was built 12/76, so it's an early 'Motortown conversion Cobra II .' I'm always looking for info regarding the Motortown conversion process before Ford took the Cobra II package in-house; it's a special part of Cobra II history!"
