The Mustang GT/CS Recognition Guide & Owner's Manual by Paul M. Newitt and licensed by Ford is a hardbound, full color 224 page detailed story of the limited-edition 1968 Ford Mustang--which was created just for California. The story of how the California-Crazy car culture in the 1960s prompted the marketing of Mustang's first factory-produced special edition is described in incredible detail - from the inspiration of Shelby's "Little Red" coupe to the development by Ford Design to become 4,118 GT/California Specials. The story continues with the marketing plan by J.Walter Thompson and California's Ford Dealer's Association to bring this Mustang to market in the spring of 1968. A detailed account of the GT/CS variant, the "High Country Special," sold in the Denver sales district is also included. Detailed production statistics, rare factory photos, authentication, options, accessories, specific part descriptions and comprehensive Concours restoration information are covered, along with the complete stories of the Shelby prototype coupes "Little Red," and the EXP-500 "Green Hornet." A separate chapter is devoted to the development, prototypes and production of the 2007-09 and 2011 GT/CS, and a complete GT/CS Owner Registry of 1,300 cars with photos rounds out the volume. Each book is beautifully bound, signed and numbered. A very special, limited edition for Mustang collectors!

Paul M. Newitt grew up in the small town of Dixon, Northern California, where his next-door neighbor ran the local Ford car dealership. Every fall during the 1960s, he would drive home a brand-new Ford for the kids on the block to look over--during the middle of our baseball game. One time, in the spring of 1968, they drove home a new 1968 Mustang GT/CS. This would change things forever..and Paul would have his own 1968 GT/CS just before he graduated from High school in 1974... Paul went on to graduate from the University of California, Davis with a Bachelor's degree in Design. In 1980, he moved to Southern California and began work in graphic design, photography and writing several Mustang parts catalogs, including a 1930s-themed Model A parts catalog that quickly became popular nationwide.In 1985 Paul began researching the history of the Mustang GT/CS. It took three years to compile the data from a few hundred cars he'd found for his registry, and to talk with the people that created, designed and produced the GT/CS at Ford. This led to his first (softcover) 68 -page book on the GT/CS in 1989 that quickly sold out, and, in fact, was selling a few years ago on EBAY for up to $280 a copy! That popularity would encourage Ford to bring back the GT/CS in 2007. In 2008 Paul was awarded the Lee Iacocca award in Los Angeles for his work with the Ford Mustang, and that same year, Paul began work on his hardbound collector edition of the "GT/CS Recognition Guide" which was published in 2011. Today, Paul resides in the Bay Area, and is continuing his work on specialty automotive, "how-to" books.
