(11 photos of a 1976 Blue Mustang Cobra II Hatchback) Our first Attitude Of The Week for the new year and our 8000th Mustang photo on this site was this blue 1976 Cobra II Mustang owned by John of Median, Ohio. John writes: I bought my car brand new off the showroom floor in 1976. Originally it was white with blue stripes. My wife and I met because of this car. When I met her back in 1979, she had a black/gold Cobra II. I ended up keeping my Cobra all these years. Glad I did. The motor is a 302 rollerized crate motor, with a Weiand 177 supercharger, GT-40 Ford racing aluminum heads, 4150 series Holley supercharger carburetor, MSD distributor, Mallory ignition, Summit Racing noisy gears, Cobrajos chrome valve covers, TCI streetfighter tranny, and Be Cool crossflow aluminum radiator. All the mods to the engine were done within the last couple years. It must of been a mid life crisis that made me spend the money. ha ha. I should of done it years ago. It's a fun car to drive.|
