Default The forgotten Mustang. The first 5.0.

When asked what was the first 5.0, most would say the fox body... And would be incorrect. Why has the king cobra been forgotten as the first Mustang to be called 5 point oh and wear the 5.0 badge?
Im confused even on this site were I should post.. There's a 5.0 section and a classic Mustang section. The king cobra maybe the only Mustang that fits both sections. I'll admit, The Mustang 2 isn't the best looking Mustang..but the kc was a special beast (for its time). With the "5.0", returning i would think the king cobra would be respected as the very first 5.0 Mustang. It doesn't get any love. 😥.

Man, those are some really good looking Mustang 2s in pic. With a nice paint job and attractive rims and tires, those Mustang 2 really start to look good. My 78 kc is waiting to get sand blasted then off to the paint shop. Just ordered the decal kit,i def want the cobra on the hood, not sure yet about the pin stripping...would like to go for a modern look. I'm wondering if there are updated head light and tail lights. or if ideas on some custom lights.
