To help bolster production for the upcoming redesigned 1979 models, Ford introduced the King Cobra Mustang, featuring body ground effects, front & rear spoilers and hood scoop surrounded with a decal of a king cobra. Only 4,313 of these specialty King Cobra Mustangs were built, available only with the venerable 302 cubic inch, 139 hp two barrel V8. This one is optioned with power steering, power front disc brakes, floor shift auto transmission, AM/FM-8-track stereo and air conditioning. Finished in bright red with pinstriping and matching red cloth/vinyl bucket seat upholstery. Correct aluminum 13” wheels with white wall 175/80R13 radial tires round out this unique example. The factory buck tag confirms that this is a legitimate King Cobra. With the odometer indicating 41,839 kilometers, this King Cobra runs and drives excellent.
