pictures to follow this week .
it has come to a point where my dads health is not going to enable him to start the restoration of his beloved mustang 2 king cobra .
this is fitted with a 302 small block , auto box , 8" locker axle if i remember rightly, these are a rare car ,the king cobra has the complete kit fitted ,t tops
this car does run but breaths heavy so expect a rebuild , it will need welding / restoring ,my dad has som spare panels that will go with the car.cheers vin and the fuel tank is useless

4 or 5 stud hubs? Could tub it out.........
as far as i know all mustang 2's were 4 stud , same as my brother is using on his tubbed 10 second pop, funny though i was not agreat fan of it until my brother showed me some pictures of a tubbed one , would be a different car though, comes with spare doors , bonnet, front bumper, and what ever other bits are in my dads shed for it.:tup:

wow, I used to own this car when it had the 351 in it, glad to see its still around, it is a very very rare car, there was another in Classic American for sale a few years back, he wanted 10k for it! no idea if it sold or not though.
