very important item: most of the Fraser Dante customers love our great Mustang upgrade to enjoy their Mustangs in the real world today…here is the new designed Borgeson power steering that is just installed by Fraser Dante for Spring 2021…we only use the excellent full Borgeson variable ratio power steering complete system that makes this so easy to drive, this has the Saginaw style smaller and efficient pump that works well and does not leak (LINK), we also find the new hard to get pulleys in our full professional install, all the fluids, lines and hoses, this is a far better and very desired way more than the original Ford system constant power steering that often leaks…our normal fair Fraser Dante customer install price is a $2890 costing for this upgrade with all testing, 

Engine: the initial published specs of this famous 289cid with the bore of 4.00” and a short stroke of 2.57” are for 225 horsepower @ 4400 rpm along with the strong 305 ft/lbs. of torque at 3200 rpm, this free reviving engine is a great engineering piece, this is highly show stock detailed, here is a proper 289cid unit with very even compression of 132 to 141 lbs. in a dry cold reading just taken (SEE LINK), has the casting of C5AE-6015-E, with the date code of 4c3 leading us to believe that this is a correct dated 289cid unit but not the original produced engine, these engines have no VIN #s but simply date codes, this is very proper, it was rebuilt in the first restoration and then checked by Fraser Dante, in order to deliver proper fuel that is clean to the carb, note that this is now set up with a new fuel tank that has been installed,

intake/carb: this recently had a Holley 600 cfm carburetor installed that was simply not the best carb for modern street performance, now Fraser Dante for Spring 2021 is installing an expensive very hard to get uprated brand new Edelbrock 4v AVS2 500 cfm electric choke carburetor, the new Edelbrock #1901 AV2 Series 500 cfm Carburetor is designed and calibrated for the single carb small cubic-inch V8 engine applications, is designed with both timed and full vacuum ports for ignition advance, factory equipped with: Metering Jets – Primary .095, Secondary .095, Primary Rod .070 x .052, orange spring (5′ Hg) we use new carburetor studs to match for ultimate induction is set on an aluminum Edelbrock Performer intake manifold with all new intake bolts and heavy duty FelPro gasket (SEE LINK), has the complete fresh carburetor linkage set up, then the install is just checked by Fraser Dante for great strong smooth street power, this full install is $1700 at Fraser Dante, has the MCA Cobra chrome valve covers and the proper air cleaner with the Cobra air intake system, the hi-po orange air filter,

engine exhaust: has the correct exhaust manifolds leading to a new dual ‘H’ pipe aluminized exhaust system with chrome exit pipes, this has standard exhaust manifolds that are connected to an expensive brand new 2” ‘H’ pipe aluminized dual exhaust system that is custom fitted with new hangers and new mufflers with expertise, this nice exhaust system has the dual pipes extending under the rear valence with tasteful chrome extensions, the photos of this nice show quality system (LINK), the bay is just nicely now set up for driven show,

Transmission/driveshaft: this has the desirable C-4 green dot 3-speed automatic transmission, fully checked in the Fraser Dante shop, a new flex plate clutch system was added, with parts and labor, this is a $700 retail job in our shop, new fluids are added, then road tested to check all the systems, makes this easy to drive,

As Fraser Dante did the full check in the shop, we discovered that the original driveshaft was worn out, now the fully restored by our top quality sub is the fully proper driveshaft, has the new ‘U” joints, new slip yoke, driveshaft is then balanced, this process is a costing of some $750 with the labor in and out and taking to our sub, now driving the car is smooth without vibration, now also just installed is an expensive new strong DuraLast Gold battery with 750 cold cranking amps for great starting, has the new proper cables (LINK), this car has the full testing by the staff of Fraser Dante is just completed, the engine bay is detailed to MCA driven show presentation, the full tune completed is with new show Ford C5OZ spark plug wires, new Autolite copper core ‘45’ spark plugs (SEE LINK), the timing and valves are professionally set, 

oil/fluids: the fluids are fresh, the radiator flushed with fresh coolant to -20o, racing oil/filter: Special Valvoline high performance VR1 20-50 high zinc oil is added along with new filter for engine protection (LINK), note this step is the top racing quality oil that can only engines without a catalytic converter, this was done and driven, then checked in our shop and the oil and dipstick are crystal clear,

history: here is a show car history with a previous title going back to the last family in 1971, lots of loving and expert care for many years, then this was found from said family by a real expert Mustang friend of this writer, he is very knowledgeable Mustang person, then to Fraser Dante, this has the original Data Tag (SEE LINK), Fraser Dante then prepared the car for a collector up North in mid 2020, although he loved the car, he lives on Cape Cod and felt that the sea salt air would not be good for the car even though he has a climate controlled garage, he did but 106 miles, for Spring 2021, Fraser Dante brought this pretty 1966 Vintage Burgundy convertible back to Atlanta, then through our shop again, we added the uprated Borgeson Power steering system,

Costing notes: now in 2021, the expenses to build and restore classic cars is climbing, we are faced with limited parts supply both from the orient and domestically today, even when we can find our top quality parts, paints and tires, our costings are now way higher, shipping is also higher, our own staff now takes serious health precautions on our shop to protect themselves, our insurance is higher, thusly as we go forward at Fraser Dante, we will keep up our very top quality vehicle build but we are forced to raise our prices with the big nut we have today, 

wheels/tires: now just installed on the car are the desirable and now hard to get are the 1965 styled steel chrome one piece 14×5.5 wheels with red center caps and proper lug nuts, these wheels are striking and do not have a trim ring to fall off, then just put the new set of the Hankook Optimo P205/75/R14 narrow band whitewall radial tires installed mounted and balanced by Fraser Dante as these would retail at $422 with fees plus tax, note that many people sell classic cars with older tires (SEE LINK), the spare tire is a factory steel wheel with a black radial tire, there is a proper trunk mat and a plaid spare tire cover, has a service jack, here another recent expense for looks and driving safety,

interior: has the very nice restored very crisp looking full Black bucket seated standard interior, the seats have great padding, has 4 black safety belts, has proper door panels and with nice hardware, note the brand new uprated console that is now installed and really popular today, this unit is $160 today, looks great and works well with the cup holders, the dash bezel is new, new padded upper dash pod, a very nice new black full carpet, a brand new set of rubber floor mats to protect the carpet, has the desirable stock black factory steering wheel in just wonderful condition, the horn blows, a very nice black proper great looking top with excellent back window, the bows have been painted correctly in black, has a black boot, the trunk is in great condition with nice paint inside,

sound system: in Summer 2020, Fraser Dante added the new uprated excellent Custom AutoSound radio system with the new speaker in the stock location, this new system is the top end model with the Bluetooth addition, great install that fits in the stock location, 

Presentation: this has just great ‘eyes’ for fun driving, all the stainless trim around the 1966 Mustang is great including the side ‘fingers’ and all proper Mustang emblems, optional front hood stainless trim, the stainless trim around the front tinted glass windshield is in exceptional condition, the windows that roll up properly, the standard black bucket seated interior is very nice with professional detailing, note the factory very nice steering wheel, nice proper new black carpet…has the front tinted windshield, Fraser Dante has the final professional high speed buffing at the very end,
