(3 photos of a 1964 Poppy Red Mustang Convertible) Poppy Red 1964 Mustang convertible owned by Gene Walinski from Simi Valley, California. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting June 26, 2016. It was originally Poppy Red and still has it's original 260ci engine. Gene had this story to share, "I bought this Mustang in 1978 for $400 with around 38000 miles on it. She had an 'Earl Sheib' $19.95 chalky red paint job with spray painted stripes along the hood and body-side contours and a street car bell mounted under the car below the driver's seat. It had been outdoors for years. With my sister and I both taking classes on body, paint and upholstery, as well as my father having a repair shop, we managed to paint it back to its original color, sew new upholstery, and replace the top in about two years. It was beautiful and remained completely stock for the next 35 years except for a four row radiator, front disc brakes and a set of '68 GT500KR wheels. Eventually, in 1998, it got a new paint job (free) from a body shop I had been referring work to, got some new tires and the wheels polished (also for free) from a local tire and wheel shop where we had wheel and tire
packages installed on new Mercedes and Volvos from the dealership where I
worked. A couple of years ago, I decided to make a 'tribute' car or 'tribute' to Carol Shelby at which time, my wife deemed it the Wanna-be, resulting in the GT 1AB stripe and license plate. (won-a-b). I added stripes, tribar headlamps, engine dress up kit and a 'euro Brace' and Monte Carlo bar under the hood. It's never been wrecked, lives in then garage and hasn't been washed in two years or so. I think it's one of the best looking color combinations ever made and people everywhere I go say so too. Still
has the original 260 V8 2bbl and the generator and will be going strong for many years to come!"

(7 photos of a 1966 Orange And White Mustang Fastback) Check out this 1966 Mustang fastback owned by Tony and Tammy Seader from La Salle, Colorado. It's painted Sunset Orange (top) over Pearl White (bottom). Tony tells us more, "We purchased the car about six years ago from a local car lot here in our small town. The car had been for sale for some time and seemed to have made it's way through five owners in about one year. Apparently the car had issues with the charging system. We were looking for a mate for our 66 coupe so we decided to buy it and work through the problems. After some trial and error we discovered that it had the wrong wiring harness. Once we replaced it with the correct harness and new voltage regulator the issue was solved. When we took possession of the car it had horrible faded red paint with black interior. We drove it that way for three years replacing only the wheels and tires, shocks, spring, and coils. Once we decided we couldn't stand that faded out red paint anymore the restoration was on! We stripped the car in the garage then took it to get it sandblasted. Once we decided the paint colors and scheme we took it to the body shop where we decided on many modifications. These mods included shaving the drip rails, cowl, and rear vents. We added the front racing apron and deck lid. Both the front and rear windows are glued in and window trim is delete. The air cleaner is custom made from a GT350 hood scoop and bolts onto the carb to make a real shaker hood. Dual tip side exhaust was added and American Racing torque thrust II rims."

(10 photos of a 1966 Emberglo Orange Mustang Sprint Convertible) Emberglo 1966 Mustang Sprint 200 convertible with a 120hp (at 4400rpm), 200 cubic inch, 1 barrel, inline 6 cylinder engine. Promoted as the Millionth Mustang Success Sale, the Sprint 200 limited edition package was offered mid 1966 when Ford worried about inventory problems with the first V8 level upgrade 289ci engine. The Sprint 200 was a sport package specifically designed for the base 200ci 6 cylinder engine which were plentiful. Other Sprint options included center floor console; painted side accent stripes (color matched with the car's interior); deletion of the chrome rear quarter ornaments; and a set of deluxe 48 spoke, blue center wire-style wheel covers.

The 1996 Sprint upgrade package was Ford's answer to the projected dwindling supply of the 289ci V8 engine by enticing customers to buy a sportier Mustang with the base 6 cylinder engine. Advertised as a "Limited Edition" the campaign worked and survived for the next few years.

(5 photos of a 1966 Emberglo Orange Mustang GT Hardtop) Emberglo 1966 Mustang hardtop owned by Joe Parker from Charlotte, North Carolina. It has its original 289ci V8 engine and an automatic transmission. Joe tells us more, "My Father bought the Mustang for my Mother's Christmas present in 1965. It was Emberglo red with a black interior. Mom gave the car to me in 1971. I drove it for years until I left it in Texas to get restored when I moved back to North Carolina in 1990. The shop removed the engine and painted the engine compartment then let it sit for seven years and did not do any more work so I had it brought back to NC and left it with a restorer in Waxhaw NC till 2013. I kept in touch with him and he kept telling me he would do the work but it never got done. My Mom really didn't believe I would ever get it finished. When we picked it up to take it to the third restorer (Barry Stone); we found it in a lot behind the shop with the windows cracked open and many missing parts. We took it to get the body work done and it took three people 734 hours to complete the work. The engine and transmission were sent out to rebuilders. Then Barry went to work putting it all back together. He finished in August this year (2015). Sadly, Mom died in July and did not get to see it finished, but she did get to see over 100 pictures documenting the progress. It ended up costing over $52,000 for the restoration. The engine is no longer stock (aluminum heads, new cam, new intake and carburetor), I had the interior color changed and had a Cobra hood to replace the stock hood. I also had the suspension beefed up. I love the results and plan to drive it for many more years."
