I know a lot of folks scoff at these but I always liked this body style.

Well I like it a lot, especially those wheels. Any chance of a peek under the hood?

The scoffing was due to the V-6 and small body size.  The looks were fine, just calling it a Mustang invited comparisons to the more powerful and larger 'Stang of the past.  I think toward the end of the run a few had V-8s squeezed in and some with racing plastic side panels inspired by the road racing I.M.S.A. racing series.  Nice work!

Not a well-liked genre of Mustang - probably due to Ford's idea to scale it down sizewise and powerwise during the gas crunch days.

Great job on it though, it really looks good.

I liked the fastbacks myself, in particular the Cobra version with the 302 V8. Alas, under the skin they were still just a Pinto. lol

Never my favourite Mustang but nevertheless a great job Jeff.

Did the Wolfrace wheels come with the kit?

Hi Sam,

Is that the one that one of Charlie's Angels had, white with a blue stripe on the hood...

I wonder if the designer of the Pinto designed the Mustang II. Sure looks similar to it anyways.
Grate looking build!

Same platform as the Pinto, just as the original Mustang used the Falcon platform. They did sell quite well, oddly enough.

Nice build, though.

Great job Jeff. Funny how the one on a Pinto platform is derided, but the Facon platform (and the Fairlane to a lesser extent) are special. If not for the Mustang II where would hot rodders get IFS for their deuces?

Well done. I like this body style, far more than the Fairmont platform that followed, and this is truer to the original Mustang Idea than the 71-73's were.
