1974 Ford Mustang

The 1974 Ford Mustang was completely - and I mean completely - revamped from the 1973 car. This car was so new that it was even given a new name: the Mustang II. Not only were the name and look new, but the theory behind the car was completely different. No longer was the Mustang a "muscle car." It still was considered by some to be a sports car, but the engine made more of a whisper than a roar.

The base engine was a 2.3-liter inline 4 cylinder, capable of achieving 88 horsepower. The high-end model remained the Mach I, which had a 101-hp 2.8-liter V6 (the same engine as the Mercury Capri of that year).
