so my mom had a gorgeous black mustang in 1975 (no idea how old it was at that point) that I distinctly remember seeing that snake-on-wheels logo inside or on (my memory is screaming that it was on the seat belt). Anyone know what model this could be ?!

I use to see them on fenders of big block Torinos and big block Rancheros, usually right in front of the 429 emblems. There are a couple different versions. I don't know if they came originally or were a add-on? Never saw one a Mustang.

This was where you'd see that decal. Of course, Ford was pretty free with decals.

Thanks for the reply! I must have scrambled my memory, though the Torino doesn’t look familiar.

FYI, the `69 Cobra model was the Fairlane trim level, not a Torino trim level. So, correct to call it a `69 Fairlane Cobra. I learned from my brother who owned a `69 Torino that the Cobra model was a Fairlane. Dean

I knew a guy in Austin back in the mid to late 70's who had bought a '70 Torino 429CJ brand new but he had already sold it when I met him. Even the Shivverlay boys admitted that 429CJ was the fastest car in Austin at the time.

I just remember where I saw that emblem. I bought a jacket at the Ford Dealer in 1977. They came in dark blue, lightg blue, red, black and white. They were nice jackets. They get good money for them now on eBay. I wore mine out laying on the cold greasy garage floor working on my Mustang.
