1978 Ford Mustang Ghia Review




looks, performance, comfort, engine... the whole damn thing.


Ford Mustang Ghia — This was the worst buy i've made in my life. The car ran like crap, looked that way too and was the most unreliable thing i've ever owned. It pretty much killed Ford to me for a while. Though i somehow managed to auction it off and make some money out of it.

Mustang Ii — I liked the styling, and the fact that Mustang IIs are the redheaded step children of the Mustang family. It was given, free, to my brother around 1990. We shared it for a year or so, but it was old and tired then and needed more work than we wanted to do.

Great handling (rack and pinion)
Quiet ride
Good MPG
Semi- likeable styling


Lacks Mustang nostalgia
Little engines
Rubber Bumpers


Great Car Although Not Completely Muscle — They run great, the emission controls sucks. The are build solid. This car hardly had any rust. It got great gas mileage out of the 2.8 liter (17 in town, 21 on the highway), they are not the easiest to find parts for. The best part about the car is the feel and drive. There is almost any road noise and it rides incredibly comfortable. They are pretty peppy, but geared for the highway.

1978 Ford Mustang Hatchback Review


V8, T-Tops


Minor leaks, older interior


Excellent Condition! — The V8 engine gives the acceleration a considerable boost. The body is in great shape with t-tops. The rims are aluminum and the paint job is custom. (I can't give it a good review cause I don't know what all is in it...)

I Would Say Behind The Corvette, This Is The Best Car For The Money. By robmaustin

Ford hit the nail on the head with this one. The torque and the power you feel when you hit the accelerator is awesome. The 6 speed manual shifts so smooth that you forget your driving a stick. I t... Read More

Fun To Drive By laflavor
