It was clear that the company wanted the II to go out with a bang when it introduced the '78 models with much fanfare in October of that year. At the top of the food chain sat the King Cobra, which Ford advertised as the "Boss of the Mustang stable."

The King Cobra was a hatchback-only model with the 5.0L engine, standard four-speed manual transmission, power brakes, and power steering. The $1,253 KC treatment did without the customary bodyside striping of the Cobra II, but sported a unique tape layout featuring a giant snake decal on the hood and pinstriping on the greenhouse, decklid, wheel lips, rocker panels, belt, over the roof area, and around the side windows. Up front was a tough-looking air dam.

A "King Cobra" nameplate went on each door and the back spoiler, and a "5.0" badge appeared on the rear-facing hood scoop. The King Cobra also had rear-quarter flares, a black grille and moldings, and color-keyed dual sport mirrors. Raised white-letter tires rode lacy spoke aluminum wheels with twin rings and a Cobra symbol on the hubs.enthusiasts snapped up 4,318 of them.
