      You will find it hard to get parts for 74 to 78 as they don't do any. 64 to 73 & 79 on wards plenty of parts available. You may be lucky to find someone breaking one on ebay .

            It depends on what parts you need

            Engine, suspension, ball joints, track rod ends, steering components, front screen are fine, body panels will rely on second hand parts as previously stated

              Thanks for the replies fellas - sounds like ownership may be a problem! I have 64-68 Mustangs but thinking of adding to the collection. I've seen that gold metallic car on eBay but the price seems very steep to me. What are these cars worth, anyone know?

                It may look expensive, but where are you going to find another one like it?
                It's a bit of an odd one though. It's a RHD. Wonder if it's been converted using a UK doner car. :-?

                  Hi John,

                  There were a couple of companies converting these and other models, using a chain from one side of the car to the other encased in box section, sounds crude, but it does work

                  That said, I do check for wear every couple of months :)

                    My guess is that it is a South African car - they drive on the left like us. Long history of American cars built in SA in RHD - going right back to the 1930s

                      Front end doesn't look right, different paint?

                        Hi, Tony.
                        I know about the RHD chain drive. I owned a nearly new one, back in the day. UK Ford RS dealers sold them new. BUT, not the fastback with a V8. We only got the coupe. I was wondering if this was an owner conversion or, (as was suggested), may have been a SA or Aus car. :-?

                        Here's mine.

                          Hi John,

                          Nice car, I take it this was a late 1978 with the new, at that time, UK lighting regulations on the position of the front indicators

                          Other than mine, this is the only other photo I have seen with them

                          I didn't know the conversion was only on the coupe, do you have any idea what vehicle was used for the steering for the Australian market?

                          Thanks

                          Tony

                            I've never actually owned a Mustang II but I do remember going to see a brand new RHD one at the Nottingham Ford dealership. Rarely saw one on the roads though.

                              It is getting massively easier to get parts for them, I run the FB page for Mustang Ii in the UK ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/630480933648789/ ) and have a garage full of spares, loads of resources and companies in the US are making aftermarket parts. There are also a decent amount of UK similar age cars with parts that can be used if you get really stuck, fantastic cars!
