Is that what the palomino interior probably looks like in my first (79) Mustang by now?
:puke:
The black V-6 above is nice enough to warrant getting gold chains and a turbo for it. :chin

That black one isn't all bad. Swap a different set of wheels on it and all will be well in the world. :banana:

What wheels would you put on? 4 lug wheels are more limited in selection. Smoking the bright wheels might do it. Black T/A or GMC black snowflake replicas take the wrong number of wheel studs.
Dish aluminum is period correct. These Datsun/Nissan Z car wheels would clean up nicely if the pattern and spacing was right. I’d want the background to be black for this car. (If they were available locally, I might put them on a different project that they are a direct fit for.)

Those wouldn't be horrible if they fit, but I don't think they're anything I would choose. Finding wheels for a II is a somewhat difficult task. I guess I'd go with something fairly easy like what I have on mine now, or something like these if I could find the right sizes and offsets.

https://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/cto/d/greensburg-1975-mustang/7286826525.html There's @Noobz347 one to build his 4x4 with.

https://fresno.craigslist.org/cto/d/madera-1977-ford-mustang-50-v8-302/7298499860.html Really clean 302 Ghia

https://cleveland.craigslist.org/cto/d/independence-1978-ford-mustang-cobra/7299515127.html This one has me thinking about a lot of potential bad decisions...

https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/csw/cto/d/chaska-1974-mustang-ghia/7293973565.html Clean original Ghia

https://peoria.craigslist.org/cto/d/morton-1978-ford-mustang-ii/7291233995.html A little rusty for the price considering it's a 2.3L car...

https://denver.craigslist.org/cto/d/bennett-1978-mustang-ii-price-reduced/7291951694.html They keep dropping the price I might get over the ugly color. Fun fact, my '76 that was harvest gold had previously been this color.

https://denver.craigslist.org/cto/d/gypsum-1975-mustang-mach/7294559367.html Decent-looking Mach 1 project.

https://tucson.craigslist.org/cto/d/tucson-1974-ford-mustang-ii/7286747193.html That's too redneck even for this country boy... I just look at it and think "wow" over and over.

https://omaha.craigslist.org/cto/d/council-bluffs-78-ford-mustang/7294500834.html I'm low-key in love with this one. It's unpretentious, the wire wheels are classy, and it's packing a V8 in that unassuming base coupe body. If only it wasn't priced so damned high.



Seriously though, someone else go buy that green over white billboard Cobra before I do something stupid like take out a loan to go get it.
