I'm not sure about the naming of this? I couldn't find any other King Cobra's listed.

Though they were sold as King Cobra package. Can we list as 1978 Ford Mustang II King Cobra? :think:

The name is "Mustang II"

"King Cobra" is not part of the name, officially. It's simply the name of the option package.

To keep consistant with the other cars on the site King Cobra should be listed after Mustang II in the model name field, either that or all the Cobras on the site should have Cobra moved to the extra info field.

I do not really see what you mean, but I do not know if the name was changed between some of the comments :think:
I moved "king cobra" to extra info as no other was named like that

I moved King Cobra to additional info after reading rjluna2 and ShantJ's comments before tonkatracker posted.

So tonkatracker moved it back to model name, but I do not understand the reason since no other are listed that way :think:

Some are listed as Ford Mustang Cobra, maybe this should changed if not correct, but the II are listed as Cobra II, not as II Cobra.

The reason there are no others listed this way is because there are no other King Cobras on the site. The King Cobra is more of a separate model than the Cobra II is as the Cobra II is just paint and stripes added by a third party supplier before the car was sold and the King Cobra was done by Ford itself with performance added as well.

If we are going to list this as Mustang II King Cobra then all other Mustang Cobras should be listed as Mustang Cobra and the Cobra II should be listed as Mustang II Cobra II, and for that matter all Trans Ams should be listed as Pontiac Firebird Trans Am and SHOs ahould be Ford Taurus SHO etc., etc., etc.

I was contacted by the car wrangler for the film back in summer of 2009. They were
looking for two black on black king cobras for this movie. I was paid for the use
the car and was not charged for the upgrades. they added 15 in tires and wheels,
leaf spring extenders,sidepipes that are non functioning and orange neon under car
lighting. It was used for interior shooting only and they had it for 10 months. My
car is located in New Jersey and the second one is in Canada. It has a 302 V-8
automatic trans,T-Tops,PS,PB and is a low mileage car. I am thinking about selling it
due to the mods make it hard to drive so if you know anyone interested just contact
me through this site. Not sure on the price yet but will figure it out soon.
