1966 GT Mustang Convertible in just beautiful factory Tahoe Turquoise with extremely nice body and striking luster, correct factory RARE Original Turquoise and White Pony two-tone interior, GT wood steering wheel, new safety belts, factory console, very good contrasting white top, 1966 rally pac, strong proper original dated 289cid /4V ‘A’ Code engine that works perfect, the engine unit just taken out of car for new fresh updates by the Fraser Dante restoration team, brand new hand formed dual aluminized ‘H’ pipe dual exhaust system with new mufflers for top show conditions, just built c4 automatic transmission, uprated Vintage Air Conditioning system, new aluminum radiator, new Borgeson power steering system just installed, 1966 styled steel wheels, radial dual line redlines, a proper turquoise boot, GT fog lights, luggage rack, a great underchassis just highly detailed with red oxide, restoration just completed by Fraser Dante, it is a very hard to find real GT convertible in such solid condition with lots of options that are desired worldwide, all the correct GT factory standards,  

body/paint:  just terrific rear quarter panels and the factory front fenders that are all believed to be as produced from the Ford factory, no signs of any change, the floors appear be as produced from history with only two rear footwells that were professionally installed when the previous owner had the car, that was how presented when found, then Fraser Dante staff spent many hours under the car to prepare LINK to very nice and solid red-oxided underchassis,
this is the original color to the car, believed an original Tahoe Turquoise color with only one re-paint during its life, wetsanded and cleared some time ago , this was painted a few years ago, the paint is very nice, no signs of rust, just professionally wet sanded and buffed, (LINK), said paint has a very few minor flaws as said paint work was done a few years ago and virtually off the road for many years, for Summer 2017, the final detailing was professional accomplished at Fraser Dante to prepare with just terrific luster, dual Pony outside mirrors, white vinyl power top, GT fog lights, rear luggage rack,

Engine: an original properly dated 289cid/225hp, 4V carb, all the numbers are checked (LINK), very good dry reading compression from 132psi to 140psi across (LINK), new dual aluminized exhaust system, uprated aluminum radiator to insure fine cooling operation in the future with flex fan and fan shroud for great cooling in the modern world today, great dated proper dated hydraulic lifter heads, the engine was taken out to check the lower end and install bearing, see photos of the work and the reinstall (LINK), new alternator, new starter, water pump, thermostat, stock style ignition system with yellow top coil, C6 casting stock intake manifold with Edelbrock #1406 (600cfm) carburetor with electric choke, new HiPo exhaust manifolds with new H-Pipe dual aluminized exhaust system fitted with correct GT tips (LINK), these manifolds that were used on the ‘K’ codes give more power and are newly cast to look as factory, this should now produce about 235 horsepower instead of the original 225 due to these very desired upgrades,

all new belts, hoses and clamps in the engine bay, new fuel tank kit for clean delivery of fresh gas, has the gas intake system and new sending unit, it takes lots of professional effort to install, steel fuel lines to the front of the car, has the new full tune up that includes the new points for the checked distributor, a new condenser, new spark plugs, then the Fraser Dante special hi tech VR1 20-50 oil with zinc is added with new oil filter (SEE LINK),

transmission: to make this the perfect driven show car, Fraser Dante just installed the fully rebuilt C4 automatic transmission , (LINK), this unit was handled by our top sub who has done quality work for us for many years, all three speeds work just perfect!

steering sector: the new Borgeson variable steering unit that is much better than stock is jjust installed in this last restoration, this upgrade is worth $2300 with all the kit, the professional install, then the car is just computer aligned with the specs to confirm (LINK),

Braking/Suspension: the braking system is just gone through for safety, FULL new front GT disc brakes, rotors, calipers, brake pads, hoses, new master cylinder, also new rear brake drums, shoes, wheel cylinders, hardware kit, rear hoses, all new steel brake line kit, (LINK), all new suspension - front and rear (LINK), new correct upper and lower control arms, coil springs, rear leaf springs, shackle kits, 4 new shocks, see LINK for rear end numbers, rear axle carrier checked with new bearings and axle seals, (LINK), then a new updated 1” Shelby sway bar with bushings for better handling,

Wheels/Tires: proper 1966 14x5.5 Mustang styled steel wheels with the center caps, trim rings and lug nuts, these wheels have the Coker 195/75/14 Classic Redline Radial tires mounted,

Driveshaft: working with Fraser Dante is an added benefit for those who really want their classic Mustang to drive ‘as new’, we are not a warehouse operation as Fraser Dante has professional restoration staff, we see areas like finding out that this driveshaft had been in the car for many years, most likely from new, now at considerable expense we had the driveshaft professionally rebuilt by our top sub, the main tube is tube spun and fully checked, new “U” joints installed to make sure this is vibration free and strong, the slip yoke has even been addressed, said the balanced, restored driveshaft in order to insure safe and vibration free driving, fully balanced and strength checked, new yokes and slip joints restored, then painted black to protect (LINK), then picked up and reinstalled after the chassis detail, this whole process of the driveline work alone is a $630 addition including the trips to take and return, then a test drive is done to check,

HVAC:working Vintage air conditioning, the added air conditioning system is just checked to make sure it works well, in today’s market, it takes almost $4000 to put in this newer unit along with the new uprated aluminum radiator that is painted black to look relatively stock, has the additional fan shroud, very expensive for this full install, thusly now has a very desirable cooling system,

Interior: very nice and very rare, rare full factory ORIGINAL Turquoise and White Pony Interior, looks great, great factory wood GT steering wheel, white hump hugger center console, day/night rearview mirror, woodgrain dash, working factory AM radio, has the original 1966 Rally Pac with the tachometer  working, the clock does not, front safety belts, rear belts, the trunk is fully detailed (LINK),

Summary: very hard to find such a great body on a 1966 GT convertible with top mechanicals, strong dated engine, the attached sheet of numbers are part of this report to add to the authenticity, items like the air conditioning are very desirable extras, here is a car that has a serious world wide demand for such quality, complete final restoration and mechanical check for Summer 2017, the ‘real deal’ with striking appearance ready for driven show, a fresh full updating of a GT at $56,950
