    Hey Glenn, i live in indian trail and i have a 1976 ghia with a 306 in her and a bunch of other stuff. welcome to the area and yes i agree we should all try to meet with our II's at some of the mustang meets that go on around here. they sometimes have a meet at the Hooters in moorseville. when the weather gets warm again we should meet:nice:

    one other thing, i also noticed the 5 lug rear wheels. is there a certain rear end from another ford product that would fit our II's in order to convert them to a 5 lug rear?

    Yep, she's a real Cobra. Looks like 9D on the color, so originally a white car.

    Check this out for more info on the buck tag codes...

    You'll have to clean that up a bit. I can't quite remember on the cobra II where on the buckplate it is, but it should be like my king, which says "V-8KC". It's kinda cold right now to play with the hood of the cobra II, u need 2 people to open it.

    The late Maverick, early Granada (/Monarch/Versailles) rear axles are really close to the width of the MII rear (.75 inches too wide?). Even the spring perches are close (about .25 inch too wide). Some folks bolt the MII springs right to the perches, some move the perches in a bit.

    Measure twice, cut once!
