Dear amit_sound:

The Mustang-II is not worth Rs. 1 lakh in good condition.

Jewels
Some Mustangs were very valuable, like a 1969 Boss 429. The rare Boss 429 is one of the most unique Mustangs made. It is a limited production, hand built, and highly prized collector car today. Cars in good condition today fetch in excess of US $ 100,000 [Rs. 45 lakhs]!

Lemons
Some Mustangs were crappy worthless pieces (please pardon my French).
These are the 1974 to 1978 Mustang-II models. They were a disgrace to the name: Mustang.
If you can find an old 1974 to 1978 Mustang-II model in the USA, you can buy it for $500 to $900 max.[Rs. 22,500-Rs. 40,000]

The Mustang II was smaller, heavier and slower than the original Mustang.
It was available as a two-door hardtop or three-door hatchback.
It had only two engine possibilities.
The base engine was a 2.3 litre 4-cylinder engine called the Lima four because it was made in Lima, Ohio. The only other option was Ford’s Cologne 2.8 litre V6.
Sorry pals. No 302V-8. The V-8 disappeared from Mustangs between 1974 to 1978. Ford was swamped by mail from buyers and very heavily criticized in the automotive press for not having a Mustang V-8. But no banana!
This body was never meant for a V-8.

Pinto Horror
Just as the 1964˝ to 1973 Mustang was based on the Ford Falcon muscle-car,
the Mustang-II was based on the weak ill-fated Ford Pinto whose petrol tank would explode in a rear-end collision at even 30 km/hr. About 500 people burned to death in Pintos. In Feb. 1978 the US courts awarded a 16-year-old boy, badly burned in a Pinto accident, $128,000,000 in damages -- the largest single-person injury judgment in history.

Come May 1978, the US Dept of Transportation announced that Pinto was defective and called for a recall of all 1971 to 1976 Pintos. 14 lakh Pintos were recalled. The most expensive recall in automotive history. Over 100 lawsuits against Ford forced them to pay millions of dollars in damages. Ford eventually killed the Pinto and replaced it with the Ford Escort.

Mustang Value
After the 1964˝ to 1973 muscle cars,
the next valuable Mustang was the totally new 1979 Fox Platform Mustang, designed by Jack Telnack. I had one of these cars.

Here are my car’s pix.




In general the most valuable Ford Mustangs were the 1969 and 1970, followed by the 1967 and 1968.
Then come the 1964˝..1966. Finally the 1979 to 2004.

Mustang Generations
First Generation: 1964-1966, 1967 and 1968, 1969 and 1970 and 1971-1973.

Second Generation: The crappy Mustang-II 1974-1978.

Third Generation. Based on Fox platform. 1979-1986, 1987-1993 (highest 225 bhp), 1994-1998 (first major redesign since 1979), 1999-2004 (“New-Edge” design Mustang).

Fourth and Current Generation: 2005 onwards. D-class 2-door coupe designed by Ford with Mazda’s C1 platform technology.

Bottomline
Avoid the 1974 to 1978. Mustang experts call it a disgrace to the name: Mustang.
