Thats a mustang for sure, its a 6 cyl inline, may not be a Mach 1.

I think the one in the back ground is some toyota, its right now getting a heart transplant, a Tavera engine going into it.

Its called a Mustang II not a Mach 2. Never came with an inline 6. I4, V6, V8.
Size, engines etc all thanks to 70s Oil crisis and new safety norms thanks to Ralph Naders 'unsafe at any speed' book.

I'm sure someone can get sponsorship from the Mountain Dew guys for this project - Do the Dewkkar!

In 1975 the Mustang II was also offered in the Mach 1 version which came with a German 171-cid V-6 as standard. The V-8 , 302 was an option.

A book which also killed the original Chevy Corvair. There is one in Pune, do more survive? Prabal and me had discussed a Monza in Delhi I think.

This is one in Delhi, DLX 879, although I can't make out here if she's the Monza #3 (Heritage Motoring Club Of India), probably is.

Hi Darshan: Did you follow up on this motorcycle? It sure looks restorable and will make for a good project. Hope to hear more on this one.

I had a LHD, Auto, four Cylinder Mustang -II. I t was a 1976. The worst car i have ever driven. IMHO a Mustang-II is no Mustang at all. Theres one being restored in Bombay as we speak. Hes going all the way (as yet his intentions are such) to import a souped up V-8 engine for it. I think its a useless project.

Gogi bhai the same one at bandh now, with the silly kit on it. The car was offered to me for 40 thousand when it was lying elsewhere and someone claimed to be the owner, but the hitch was the four cylinder and no papers.
