My '78 King Cobra had a 302 with a 4-speed.
Went through a clutch in 10,000 miles.
True story bro'.
Those Cobras were some pretty cool cars, even though the Mustang II wasn't extremely popular. I had a '78 Ghia silver with matching vinyl top and 4 speed. It had 39,000 miles when I bought it. I installed a sunroof a few months later. I was pretty nervous cutting through the roof, but it turned out perfect. They still use Mustang II front suspensions in hot rods today.

351 was junk, 302 was sweet!

Oh yeah - I loved that car - the 5.0L was a stout mill for sure. I would've rather had a C-4 automatic with a torque converter - never would've had the clutch issues.
