So, yeah... if you were to do a poll on everyone’s favorite Ford Mustang. There would be one vote on there for the Mustang II... Specifically the Cobra edition. Yup, I’m that guy. The weirdo freak that loves the Mustang II despite all the hate and furor from ‘stang fanatics that consider it an unwelcome black sheep (or horse?) to the Mustang legacy.
I don’t care. It’s a charming little car and I admire the design. So much that I hunted down a Zee Toys Cobra on the ‘bay for beans. On top of that, it was mint in a massacred package. I felt no guilt DLM-ing this sleeping beauty after a 35 year slumber.
The package (what was left of it) did a terrific job keeping this car nice, fresh, and minty all these years. <3
For those of you that are still reading... Good! The Mustang Cobra also makes an appearance in the terrific Manga “Gunsmith Cats” in Burst Volume 3. After Rally Vincent loses her beloved GT500, she purchases a new ride for her Bounty Hunting adventures. Burst Vol 3 introduces her Cobra and it’s a terrific story line. I highly recommend this series for all car nuts over 18 years old. Totally not appropriate for kids though...
