1977 Mustang II

Recommended Posts

Decided to finish this build off after I started it 10 years ago. Painted in Grabber Orange (non factory color for this year). Used foil for the headlight bezels.  Not a fan of this style of Mustang but thought I should have one in the collection. A Pinto on steroids!

Love it, the colour works fine.

I had one of these(a 1974), my first American car :) Ok it's not a 60s Shelby but when we all went out in it everyone loved the way the body rocked and the front end rose up when we put it to the wood. All that and it was only a V6 notch back.  Always wanted the 1/16 kit but never got it :(

Best thing about these things,was how easy a 302 fit into them.

Great model, nice clean work.  Although many degrade the lowly II, it did keep the nameplate alive with some semblance of performance through the awful '70's decade of poor gas, 5 mph bumpers, and sky high insurance rates on "muscle cars".

Looks good 

don’t know why almost everyone hates the mustang ll I personally think they look cool and the fact that you can put a V8 in them makes me want to have one.

When I met my wife she was driving a 1974 Mustang II V6 coupe in that same color, with a black vinyl top.  I had the occasion to drive it regularly and we did a 6 hr trip to her friend's house in Virginia. It was a comfortable and peppy little car.  Always started, no issues, did what it was supposed to do.

Nice model, I have the paint and resin coupe body put aside to build her car someday.

Wow. Really great looking model - from a mediocre kit!  I don’t like these Mustangs either but have been tempted to build just because they are kind of, well, yuck. 

You’ve done an excellent job on yours.

Great looking model.  Might even be better than the real car!
