Found: Original 1974 Mustang II Dealer Brochure
What every Mustang owner needs, a brochure for their year car
We met Marcus Anghel a few weeks ago when he delivered a recently finished Boss 429 Mustang to Jay Leno’s shop to shoot an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage. Soon after that visit, Marcus sent us an original brochure for the 1974 Mustang II, the same year as our Project Rodney Mach 1, and it was so fresh we just had to show it to you.
Everyone’s seen a brochure for the 1965 to 1970 Mustangs, and even those for the ’71-’73 models, but when is the last time you saw one for a Mustang II? Well, now you have. It not only shows us the cheesiness of the early ‘70s kitsch, with “Westminster cloth”, “super soft” vinyl, and the optional Picardy Velour cloth upholstery choices. The brochure also talks about the car’s mechanicals—our favorite is the pit on the “Poly-Gel Mitigator System” that explains the mandatory 5mph bumpers. It also provided a name for our project car’s paint: Medium Lime Gold, or Code 4W.
