Ford Mustang, The Early Years Podcast — Guest Interview Application

Do you own a early year Mustang?: 

1967 Mustang GT convertible, 390 Big Block, 4 speed,

What do you do for a living?: 

Operations Manager at a commercial outdoor equipment store.

Retired teacher and principal.

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

Added Wilwood brakes, electronic ignition, modern electric choke carburetor

I also added the following factory options: Tilt steering, Power steering, console, aluminum tail light panels, 15×7 factory style wheels

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

I have always wanted to boost the horsepower of the 390 but, because it is the original driveline, I have hesitated. There are a lot of bolt-on aluminum parts (heads, intake, etc. ) that would reduce weight and add power but most days I appreciate the car the way it left the factory.
