In 1978, Ford introduced the King Cobra option for the Mustang II at a price of $1277. This version was considered the "Boss of the Mustang stable" and featured a giant snake decal on the hood, pinstriping around the windows, decklid, wheel lips, rocker panels, belt, and over-the-roof area. It also had a large front and rear spoiler, rear quarter flares, spoke wheels, and the 5.0L V8 engine.
The standard 1978 Mustang Cobra II received a new stripe tape treatment mid-year with tri-color tape stripes, large "Cobra" block letters midlevel on the side and decklid spoiler, a Cobra decal on the back spoiler, and a Cobra II snake emblem on a black grille.
