In 1977, for the 1978 model year, Ford launched the Corcel II. The second generation has a completely new design. The resulting two-door sedan is of a fastback style, with long and heavy doors. These changes are also applied to the Belina, while the four-door version was dropped in response to lack of consumer interest. Equipped with the same 1.4-litre four as the first Corcel, the engine is now rated at 54 HP DIN for the base, Luxo, and LDO versions. The somewhat sporting GT received 57 PS (DIN), thanks to a twin-barrel Solex carburettor.
Approx. 182.000 Rurals were made in Brazil between 1958 and 1977.
