There’s a snake in the grille, instead of a pony, because this isn’t your ordinary Mustang II. It’s the King Cobra, the fanciest version on offer in the heady days of the late 1970s, when graphics were at their wildest. Available in a number of bold colors with bright red pinstriping, a huge hooded cobra menacing onlookers from the power-blistered hood, and the large “King Cobra” script on the tail and doors, there’s no mistaking it for anything else on the road. The sporty looks continue to the “lacy” pinstriped alloy wheels and the “5.0” badge on the hood bulge. The 302 cid V8 exhales through a pair of chrome exhaust tips poking out from under the ducktail spoiler on the trunklid. There are few cars that get you in the mood to pop in a period 8-track and rock out like the King Cobra. But if you’re not feeling nostalgic about the ‘70s performance, rummaging around in the Upgrade Shop will present numerous options for making this snake more vicious.

  • Notes

If driven using the interior view point, the speedometer in the dash only goes up to 85MPH due to the National Maximum Speed law in effect when it was built
