Check out the Pony Race and Fireman's Ball episodes of Wrecks To Riches where members of the Beverly Hills Fire Department help Barry rebuild a 1969 Mustang Fastback into a Super Muscle Car.

I had the fortunate opportunity to be invited by Barry White of Barry's Speed Shop in Corona, CA., to help build one of his Super Muscle Cars for the new hit car series "Wrecks To Riches".

We built a 1969 Mustang Fastback Super Muscle Car. The body started out in pretty good shape and only had a small amount of rust in the front passenger floor. Once the floor patch was installed, we started body work. Then it was painted in 2 stage House Of Kolor Blue Blood Red and clear coated, color sanded and polished to a beautiful shine. We then installed upgraded front and rear springs, QA1 adjustable shocks, Flaming River manual rack and pinion steering and column, Baer 4 wheel disc brakes, Currie 9" Ford posi rearend with 350 gears, 450 hp 351 Windsor small block motor, built C-4 Trans, March Surpentine pulley and belt system, Edelbrock multi-port fuel injection, Hot Rod air conditioning, and Barry's Custom Gold Wheels.

We built this car in 4 weeks with the body taking one full week and 3 weeks for assembly. Build team members of the Beverly Hills Fire Department included me (Dean Guccione), Terry Kirley, Dennis Andrews, Greg Vitali, Amy Horst, Mark Hein, Rick Martin, Dave Griffin, Bruce Lessing, Ryan Sinutko, Kevin Reed, Ken Signorio, Shane Sennett, and Brian Weidman.
