Part 1 Brad Newman

From the frying pan and into the fire, I used to take a simple 60 minute project and turn it into a 1 month ordeal, complete with incorrect parts, the wrong tools and an outcome less than stellar. Thanks to good friends and an amazing Classic Mustang community, repairs are getting easier and less time consuming. Here to talk about some of the right moves is my friend Brad Newman. Welcome back to the show Brad.

Part 2 Gary Schwaegerle

Email to the podcast:

I bought my 1964.5 Mustang for $300 in 1979 while in college as a project. Balancing life and other hobbies, I finally managed to get the Mustang back on the road at the end of 2006.  I did all the work myself except the engine machine shop work, mounting the tires and windshield.  All the work was self taught.  I rebuilt the engine and transmission. Replaced inner front fenders, torque boxes, floor pans, inner rockers, quarter panels, inner and outer rear inner fenders, trunk drops, and rear frame rails. Also did all the paint work.  Replaced entire interior and convertible top.  

My wife and I enjoy taking it to car shows all over the east.  Drive it to work in good weather. Have driven it 76,000 miles. All that wear and tear and the fact we show it have led me to redo the interior, quarter panels, paint, and convertible top. To make it more drivable I've since put a T-5 transmission in and disc brakes. 

I also have stories about clutch issues, LED light conversion, and cylinder head work so the 6 cylinder engine could pull the hills in the tall (0.63 ratio overdrive) in 5th gear.

In 1968, Ford made about 4,000 California Specials. 251 of those were sent up to the Colorado market to be sold. They were rebadged as the High Country Special. You can tell the difference between a California Special and a High Country Special by looking at the side scoops. If it has the badging on the side that says High Country Special, then it's the real deal! Currently, my Mustang is going through a full restoration. It will be stripped down to bare metal and then repainted in her original color - Gulfstream Aqua.
