The King Of NASCAR 1970 Ford Torino King Cobra 429.
The King Cobra project added numerous visual modifications to the Ford Torino. The front fascia and the front fenders received major overhauls, as Ford looked to improve the car’s aerodynamics.
Among the most hated is the 1978 Ford Mustang II King Cobra. This was a limited edition version with 4,313 units produced. The King Cobra was available only with the V8 to help bolster the car's 'performance image'. To make up for the 130 odd horsepower of the 302-cu.in., Ford went the “paint and tape-stripe” route. They called it King Cobra and it was a PoS. The Mustang II owes its roots.
This 1978 King Cobra represents possibly the ultimate expression of the Mustang II, and rocks all the right features for the era. That’s a 302 V8, a four-speed stick, flashy and borderline.

The 1978 Ford Mustang II King Cobra is a pony car by Ford that debuted in Forza Motorsport 4 and returned in Forza Horizon 2 as part of the Playground Select Car Pack. It is featured as standard in all subsequent main series titles except for Forza Horizon 4.
DIFFERENTIALS The rear end in a King Cobra was an 8-inch Ford unit, and while not as stout as a Ford 9-inch, which is used by all NASCAR teams today, it was more than capable of withstanding the low-performing 302 engine. There were several ratios available including 2.75:1, 2.79:1, 3.00.1 and 3.40.1. The four-speed came standard with the 3.00:1 ratio. Ford rear ends are among the strongest.
