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, 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, has the lower rocker moldings, doing items like the new brake check and upgrade, new tires for performance and safety, new carpet install over solid floors painted in red oxide (LINK), interior refurbishment (LINK),

Note on build costings starting in 2020:  please understand in the difficult world today, as a builder and restorer of classic Mustangs, see that the parts chain supply stream is either cut off or very limited supply, hard to get some restoration parts, then when we get our needed restoration parts, our costings are very much higher than even in 2019, the value of the build costing of these quality Mustangs is climbing higher for sure, also, having been in business for many years, Fraser Dante has a large stock of needed parts for these cars that cover most 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,

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 Fall 2020, offered with all upgrades along with the stock exterior presentation at only $42,950
