1977 Ford Mustang II

Summary

Having grown larger and more muscular by the early 1970s, the Ford Mustang returned to its compact roots for 1974-1978. Mustang II was 19 inches shorter than the 1973 model -- and seven inches shorter than the original 1965 Mustang. Though not especially loved today, Mustang II sold well in its time and kept the brand alive during a turbulent decade.
