I agree.....both car are junk! However, the mustangII and capri's were two different cars. One was Ford the other was Mercury. IIR, the capri didn't come oput until '79 or '80

just remember that if it werent for the mustang ll, we wouldnt have mustangs today. the mustang ll was actually a fun little car to drive. with the V8 and 4spd combo, you had a peppy little car that would sip fuel on the freeway. the only reason i didnt buy the one i test drove, was i found my current 66 coupe.

They are Physically Junk Wes, not mechanically...

I've seen more of them rot to pieces and have interior trip go to shat and fall to pieces than I've seen whole... I even owned one years ago...


What I ment by junk is that theyre junk... Except for ONE that I lived near in nebraska... It was a sweet all original all stock on the outside '77 with a balanced 2300cc 4 cyl and a Holley 550 2bbl that would turn 8,000 rpms easily and smoke them tires like crazy....

The rest are yucky...

MustangII's are not everyones cup of tea...but for the chosen few who own them, we make them bad ass and can prob take any of the typical cars that people restore down the track...to each his own. Someone elses junk is someone elses treasure.....

Actually, Mustang II's aren't junk. After the shock of seeing an honest to gawd Mustang built on a Pinto platform, they turned a lot of Ford folks off in '74. So they started with a bad stigma from the start. They also had the same rustout problems as the Pintos, which makes a clean one a rare find today. Along with making a cool and rather unique street/strip machine, 'Stang IIs (and Pintos) have great front end geometry, an easy to work with classis, the 2300 is a pontentionally good race engine and they have ruled the 4 banger circle track classes for years

Everything just about everybody built in the 70s had rust problems.

Mustang IIs had PS and PB standard. All had dual mirrors. Racjk and pinion standard. No shock towers. Any easlily modified V8 available. Etc Etc Etc...

I have owned more than one, and with some money into the 302, anybody who claimed your car was junk got a quick view of the taillights.

I gotta say, before I really got into fairlanes, I drove a mustang II hatchback, and it is still one of the most fun cars I've ever had the pleasure of driving. A built up 302 auto car that handled like nothing I've ever driven since. That lightweight little sumbeech waxed countless late models andgod knows how many ricers. Nice and plain jane on the outside, sleepin around town with that bored out small block. You kick a camaro's ass in one of those, and their tears and disbelief never stop. Plus, for the engineering available on those cars, they had fantastic value.

you wouldn't be vaiting so you could "un-pimp" his auto would you?
