(1 photo of a 1980 Mustang Cobra Optioned Promotional Sales Brochure) The 1980 Ford Mustang promotional booklet page showing the Cobra hatchback model says, Bold new expression of our sports car for the 80's. Mustang 3-door Cobra strikes a new image of sportiness in 1980. New styling features - Indy 500 Pace Car front end with integral spoiler and dual fog lamps, unique rear-opening hood scoop (non-functional), rear deck spoiler, exclusive tap stripe treatment. Plus blackout greenhouse moldings (moldings around all the windows), remote control styled mirrors, black lower Tu-Tone paint. These hint at what Cobra is under its gleaming hood. Turbocharged! The 2.3 liter turbo engine comes standard on Cobra. At first you won't believe you're driving on four cylinders as the turbo kicks in, delivering acceleration comparable to some other cars with V-8 engines. Acceleration you can use for passing or freeway merging... Also included on Cobra is a special suspension system with Michelin TRX tires mounted on 390 mm (15.3 in.) forged metric aluminum wheels. We call Cobra the boldest of the Mustang breed. For reasons that speak well for themselves.|
