Skiing anyone? Here is a nice Red on Red base level 1976 Mustang II coupe. No options visible here with the standard chrome grille, fog lamps, and full wheel covers. Ford called this the Mustang II MPG Hardtop
because it came standard with the most fuel efficient engine (93 horsepower, 2.3 liter, 4 cylinder). More information on this car can be found in the 1976 Ford Mustang promotional catalog

1976 European Ford promotional brochure showing some of the Ford's exported to Europe but focuses on the Mustang. The cover shows a Silver Mustang Ghia coupe with half black vinyl roof, sun roof, wire wheel covers, and front bumper guards.
The first two inside pages of the 1976 US Ford European brochure shows the Mustang II Ghia coupe. The text reads: Mustang II Ghia Sporty performance with super-luxury. The Ghia is the car for the man who wants everything the Mustang II can offer - plus the ultimate in luxury. Let's take a look. Right at the top is the super smart vinyl roof. Then there are the new opera windows neatly set into the rear side of the passenger cabin. Dual pin stripes with colour-keyed vinyl insert body mouldings accentuate the, low rakish look. There are twin, streamlike-shaped wing mirror. The deluxe Ghia spoke-style wheel covers and Ghia badging add another quality distinctive touch. Looks like these you can take anywhere - in the certain knowledge that you're going to collect some pretty envious looks along the way. And with looks like these on the outside, you'd imagine the inside would have a lot going for it too. You'd be right. Slip into the super-luxurious seating and admire the deluxe seat trim. You can pick Westminster cloth or Super-soft vinyl. The choice is yours. Note the deluxe door and quarter trim. Seat belts, of course. And rest your feet on the sumptuous cut-pile carpeting. It's colour-keyed to the rest of the interior trim and the quality wouldn't shame a playboy penthouse suite. There's a centre console that houses an ashtray for the rear seat passengers. There are door courtesy lights. And for lovers of the quiet life, you'll find the sound-proofing inside the Mustang II Ghia is about as good as that of a recording studio. Pretty special. Even more special, though is the Silver/Cranberry specialty Ghia. The new shimmer-shine Silver Metallic finish puts you ahead of the herd, without shouting about it. The Cranberry bodyside tape stripes and special Silver moulding and the unique stand-up bonnet ornament add their own quietly stylish touches. And the Silver Normande grain half-vinyl roof caps the lot with effortless elegance. Inside, it's the same story. Lavish luxury. The whole of the beautifully tailored interior is delicately colour-keyed in Cranberry tones. The seat trim is Media velour - so comfortable it's almost sinful. And there's a useful centre console conveniently placed between the front seats. In short, for a small-size car, the Mustang Ghia is far and away the biggest thing in luxury on the road.
Two pages on the Mustang II Mach 1, standard hatchback, and standard coupe. The text says, The Ford Mustang II has three outstanding virtues that are just right now. The economy of a small size car. A surprisingly high standard of luxury. (A pleasant surprise, though.) And painstaking workmanship that you just won't find in any other small car. In all, there are 4 models to chose from - the Hardtop, the 3-door 2+2, the Mach 1 and the Ghia. (For the full story of the gorgeous Ghia just turn back to the previous two pages.) The basic 4-passenger Hardtop is the lowest-priced, easiest to own, sporty, personal Mustang II. Besides the clean, classical styling (and that's well worth lingering over for a minute or two), there are steel belt radial ply tires; lush, plush interior-all-vinyl bucket seats with full-width headrests; deluxe door panels; padded arm rests; thick colour-keyed cut-pile carpeting; an instrument panel that includes a 6,000 rpm tachometer, ammeter fuel, and temperature gauges; a colour-keyed steering wheel; burled walnut wood tone trim. The 4-speed manual gearbox linking to the economical-but lively - 2.8 litre engine is standard. Not bad for starters. Then there's the Mustang II Mach 1. It looks like a racer - but it's sensibly budget-minded too. The mach 1 has lots of exciting touches. Like trim rings with styled steel wheels. Fuel-saving steel belt radials. Black lower bodyside paint. Black vinyl insert bodyside moulding. Black lower bumpers. Black bonnet lid tape stripe. Twin wing mirrors. Really racy. And a pretty smooth as well. Standard on the Mach 1 is the economical 2.8 litre V6 engine with 4-speed manual gear box. But available on every Mustang II is an optional power pack: 4,900 cc V8 engine teamed with Automatic Transmission, Power Steering and Power Braking system. The Mustang II 3-door 2+2 Combines sporty good looks with some of the useful extra space of station wagon. The big rear door swings up easily. The rear seat folds down easily. The result? Easy access to 1.82 m of floor length and 738 litres of carrying capacity. Some other features worth feasting your eye on are the special fastback styling, the wheel lip mouldings, the sporty styled steel wheels. You can take it for granted, too, that the 2+2, like the Hardtop, doesn't hold back on interior luxury. And on the road, its natural habitat, the 2.8 litre Mustang engine just loves to let go and go. (But relax, it never gets greedy on fuel).
