1977 Mustang Body Styles:

The 1977 Mustang II introduced a new set of paint colors, a much lighter simulated interior wood grain color, the 4-cylinder and V6 engines lost some power but was more efficient and lower in emissions. The front grille on all sports models were blacked out and the horizontal lines of the coupe grille was emphasized by receding the vertical slats. This was the first year of the T-roof option available on the hatchback as well as a flip-up removable sunroof, simulated wire wheel covers, and painted cast aluminum spoke wheels. The Cobra II option package increased $220 to $535 with two new color combinations of white with red accent stripes or white with green stripes. A Rallye Appearance package replaced the Stallion option and included several gold accents such as stripes, moldings, tail lamp mouldings, and stripes in the bumper rub strips.
