I thought the '79 cobra has the front facia w/fog lights like the '79 pace car? Or maybe I'm thinking it's the '80 turbo cobra that shares the front facia as the '79 pace car....Any thoughts? Was it a carry-over from the '79 pace car to the '80 turbo cobra?, I'm thinking it was.....by the way, super car !
Thanks for the compliment of my Cobra, I like how you have owned your cars for a long time too! I have owned this Cobra for 26 years. I grew up with it, well I was 18 when I got it, my first really nice car.
Yes, the 80-81 Cobra and then the 82 GT used the 79 Pace Car front end. The 79 Cobra was unique as it was the only Cobra from 79-81 that had the normal nose of a base Mustang from 79-82. I like the 80-81 Cobra's, they are sharp, I like my 79 too!
