Known history: here is a car that was found by Fraser Dante, we loved this pretty factory color as this was painted a few years ago, then driven a bit, the man we bought the car from said that he bought it from the second owner, see the photo and the breakdown of the factory data tag to confirm the authenticity of the original build of this nice 1966 Mustang convertible (LINK), this is then with the many initial described mechanicals upgrades were done, there is a very large file of receipts documenting lots of the work and parts that go with the car, now this was finished with Fraser Dante doing the final ‘getting up’ in our shop with working the very nice and the correct Arcadian blue period paint, great looking appearance as this has the lower rocker moldings, new carpet install over solid floors painted in red oxide (LINK), interior refurbishment (LINK), now doing items like the new excellent 4-wheel disc brake system check for the upgrade, the new radial tires and 14×7 styled steel wheels along with the new Shelby front sway bar and bushings (LINK) just added are great for the performance and safety , 

Note on build costings starting in 2020:  please understand in the difficult world today, as a builder and restorer of classic Mustangs, note that our parts chain supply stream is either cut off or in very limited supply, hard to get some restoration parts, when we get our needed restoration parts, our costings are climbing and wait time for parts extended, the value build costing of quality Mustangs is climbing higher, Fraser Dante has a large stock of needed parts for these cars that cover a lot of our needs, we run a professional shop with full time staff along with expert subs that have worked with us for years, in short, the values are climbing for quality, 

Engine specs: a great proper 289cid rebuilt engine by the last owner as was told to Fraser Dante and confirmed with just excellent compression, very clean rocker arms shown, this rebuilt believed original 289cid engine with the C6 dated block and C6 dated very clean heads, rebuilt and appears to be dated ‘as factory’, see the attached sheet with all the ‘numbers’  (LINK) , this car came off the production line July 31, 1966, the engine cast date is July 1, 1966, very strong and just excellent compression between 146 and 155 PSI (LINK), uprated ignition with the Pertronix 2 kit and coil, the carburetor has been replaced with the expensive modern Holley Sniper 550-516 EFI kit that gives more power and ease of operation, a fresh build 289cid engine with a really great mellow sound, a show presentation, has the MCA Cobra chrome valve covers and the proper hi-po air cleaner with the hi-po orange air filter, Cobra air intake system, fresh hoses and clamps for the radiator system, an uprated 3 row radiator, aluminum overflow tank, a metal fan shroud, the coolant checked, full fresh professional tune is just completed in the Fraser Dante shop, the timing just set, (LINK),

Racing oil/filter: Special Valvoline high performance VR1 20w50 high zinc oil is added along with new filter for engine protection, (LINK), said oil gives the proper zinc for the lubrication of the engine, note this step is using the top racing quality oil that can only be used on engines without a catalytic converter, very few shops use this top quality oil that protects the engine so well, 

Wheels/tires: here is an area that is really most important in late 2020, this has very nice new 1965 14×7 chrome styled steel wheels with the proper chrome lug nuts and the hard to get and expensive red center caps, these wheels today are simply impossible to get today, they are expensive and back ordered, also this now has the brand new Toyo 195/75/14 whitewall radial tires, they are mounted and balanced, looks so very nice and just drives super! The trunk is neat and tidy, has the side proper inner wood covers, correct trunk plaid floor mat, the spare has a steel factory wheel, a show period bis ply tire, a jack and a lug wrench,

Interior: here is a beautiful area of the car, this has a rare newer two tone blue bench fold down interior just like the factory used on the data tag, the real stitching and the quality lead this writer to believe this was an early factory quality replacement that is impossible to get today, has 4 Ford safety belts, a brand new blue carpet is now installed, has a tinted windshield, day/night mirror, has the new installed expensive tri-spoke Shelby steering wheel that is mounted on the desirable uprated tilt steering column, a top installation with ‘eyes’, ‘Retro’ uprated radio system,

Underchassis: note that this has a great all the steel presentation on the underchassis that is now in just top shape, ready for safe driven show quality, these floor foot well pans were expertly replaced as it normal in such a quality build, all very solid and rust free, nicely done, then a protective black paint covering is applied to make sure this chassis remains in very solid condition, the torque boxes are just terrific and ‘as factory’, one can see the full floors and how nice they are,

Summary: the very period and great looking color has been prepared for the fresh appearance with the final prep that includes the professional paint touch up and high speed show buffing, (LINK), the additional mechanicals that are upgraded are expensive to buy and install as they make this a very nice driven show presentation for Spring 2021, great videos, an excellent file of receipts before Fraser Dante acquired the car, now offered with all the upgrades along with the stock exterior presentation at only $42,950
