From childhood enthusiast to lifelong owner of his Classic Mustang. Paul Mickelson, I know I am excited to hear the rest of the story, welcome to Ford Mustang The Early Years Podcast.

Paul’s guest request: I believe my story is unique to Mustang ownership. I have an early (64.5) D code coupe with a 4 speed. Rally Pak and console. It was ordered by my father for a Libby who traded cars every 7 years. I was 9 in 1964. When she took delivery of her new Mustang I was at the dealership. In my best big boy voice I mentioned that when she traded her Mustang in 7 years I would be 16 and planned to buy it. Well if you’re interested in the rest of the story I’d be happy to share.

Do you own an early year Mustang?: 


If you own a Mustang, how long have you owned your ride?: 

Since 1971

If you own a Mustang or classic car, have you named your car?

The old car

If you’ve made improvements to your classic car or restored it, what work have you done?: 

It is close to the original car. Obviously the wheels and tires. The motor was rebuilt in 1996 and high performance parts were used. I still have the original spare.

What plans do you have for improvements/restoration/modification of your classic car?:

It’s only new once. I will maintain the mechanical parts but never repaint or restore.
