History
This was my first car I ever bought. I was just out of high school in 1981 and bought "Red" for $2000. It had a beautiful body, immaculate interior, and a Sprint 200 air cleaner. (This was before I even knew such a package.) In addition to the Sprint package, it had air conditioning. It was my first lesson into cars and maintenance. I loved it, but also felt it was somewhat underpowered. I never did get that A/C running even though I was living in Houston. I ended up selling it in 1982 to buy "Blue", Mustang #2.

Modifications

Drivetrain
200 six, no power anything (you could change the oil from the top side!)
Interior
none
Exterior
none
But I wanted to show this picture. There was a magical 2 month period when I owned both Red AND Blue. I was 20 years old, and owned both a Sprint 200 AND a bad ass A-code GT with a 4-speed, deluxe interior, power steering A/C. Looking back, I had no idea just how amazing this time was.
Audio
I added an AM/FM cassette player hidden in the glove box, retaining the original AM.
Suspension
none
Wheel and Tire
Raised letters. I later learned that the wire wheels had 67 (red) centers
