(10 photos of a 1978 White Mustang Cobra II King Cobra Hatchback) William Sanseverino sent us pictures of his 1978 King Cobra. He says, "This is my 12th Mustang over the years, and my 5th Mustang II. My first II was traded in over 35 years ago. I've had 3 previous IIs in the past 5 years, but none have had what I call 'a hole in the roof', so I sold them searching for just the 'right' II. I found this T-Top 1978 King Cobra online last year (spring 2017). It had over 97,000 miles on it, had surface rust in places and probably needed a fair amount of mechanical work, but this was finally a King Cobra with T-tops AND it was in the unusual white with blue stripe color combination so I had to have it. The interior was all original and just needed to be cleaned up. At the time factoring in what nice Kings were going for without T-tops, I took a chance and bought. After some snafus with the restoration facility doing the body work (who farmed out the rebuilt 302 V8), I finally got it back on May 4, 2018. Other than bodywork, paint & stripes, everything is original."
