In 1979, the 'Turbo' variation of the Cobra Mustang was equipped with a 2.3 Litre Overhead Cam (OHC) engine and was introduced in October 1978 and the 'Turbo' variant was not offered across the border in Canada, unlike with most US-market cars where there is little variation between models sold in Canada or the US.
