The Ford Mustang II doesn’t get a lot of respect. They were born during an oil crisis and when they debuted as 1974 models, they did so without a V-8 engine option. Still, their styling, size, and fuel economy made them a sales success. While their ‘70s engines and suspensions don’t do them any favors when compared to more modern Mustangs, the underlying design is worth celebrating.

Brett Behrens used a fastback from the final year of Mustang II production, 1978, to show what could be done with a lot of vision and even more talented fabrication.

Here’s how it looked when it was show at SEMA in 2014.

I remember this car. Considered a Mustang II after seeing it. Glad it is getting more love with that headline because it is. The V10 was interesting but can understand going with a Coyote. Goes to show a project build is never really done.
