78 Will be a better deal if you want a car right now and don't want to wait and pay for expensive repairs. A head gasket repair could also mean there could be more damage done to the internals. Usually putting in a new gasket is fairly expensive and it's basically in your best interest to do a complete rebuild since it has high miles. BTW, these cars never came with "factory" hurst shifters.

The 1978 is a Mustang II. If BC knew anything, he could tell just by the year. They are good cars. I own a 1976 Mustang Cobra II and it runs great and is reliable. The V-6 that is in it is the same 2.8 liter german V-6 that has been used for decades in a lot of Ford products; a good engine design. Mine has the 302 5 liter V-8, 4-speed manual and has been modified. Stock from the factory mine had a 2 barrel carb and low compression, rated at 140 hp. Mine is probably 250 hp or a little more. The price on the 1978 is a little high. I paid $2,000 for mine. The V-8 is worth more than the V-6. A fastback is worth more than a coupe. How he knows it only has 40,000 miles is beyond me and hard to believe. The average car gets 40K in about 4 or 5 years. A car of that age will need some repairs even if it is low miles. The 03 would be worth fixing and has the advantage of the V-8. You could either have it fixed or put a good used engine in it. Whichever you decide on, get a mechanic to look at it.

The Mustang II ('78) won't be the fastest thing on the block, but it runs, and it's a garage queen. It's hard to argue with that and it is definitely worth the asking price. Buy it, do a complete tune-up, put some good modern tires on it, and take good care of it.
