Body/paint condition: this really, really great body and terrific underchassis is a build from the famous San Jose California plant, we believe to the best of our knowledge that these are all the original floors in the lower chassis, all the fenders and quarters are original and rust free, hard to find such metal, here is a 3 owner car that was painted few years ago and owned by a lady now moved to Atlanta who kept this with the rare California title and the dual California black plates, there is a note from her in the file, it is very hard to find like this, the car was painted a few years ago in California with a magnificent color so very close to the original factory Vintage Burgundy color by the lady before she moved to the Atlanta area, it is really a striking and even better in person than photos show, then before she just gave up the car due to her age, on this rust free body and paint, there were but a few very minor road nicks when she drove the car, now the team at Fraser Dante just had our professional ‘finisher’ do a high speed buffing and wet sanding, then the high tech wax (SEE LINK), then our touch up man went through the car to fix any small imperfections to yield just a really top #2 driven show convertible, really a striking appearance,

Wheels/tires/shocks: technology has given us better wheels and tires than originally produced, we use top quality for great driving and safety, for years Fraser Dante were using the replica of the 1965 or even 1966 styled steel wheels in the 14×6 size, these wheels were always hard to balance correctly and the manufacturers of these steel wheels are dwindling, even though said 1965 chrome wheels are available and still could be chosen by a customer, now Fraser Dante uses the expensive Drake Legendary 15×7 aluminum alloy replica styled steel wheels with their center caps and new lug nuts, then with the shipping along with the center caps and lug nuts, they would retail at $245 a wheel, the wheels now are mounted with the performance Yokohama YK740 GTX 195/65/R15 blackwall radials that retail for $117 a tire, then all of this must be mounted and high speed balanced for top driving performance, this yields a costing of $1560 for these new wheels and tires, a great addition to the car, if someone does want the factory stock 14×6 styled steel wheels with radial whitewalls, those can be installed for the same price,

Engine: here is a most important items as for sure that this is the  rebuilt, very strong proper engine that is set up for top driven show as presenting under the hood is just terrific, the engine bay is detailed to MCA driven show presentation, note the Cobra valve covers and the proper air cleaner with the uprated show hi-po orange air filter, then now installed is the Pertronix ignition and the Flame-Thrower coil, see the below attached sheet of the very outstanding specific engine specs… this has the proper casting for the 289cid engine, the hydraulic lifter fresh heads are stamped ‘65’ (SEE THE LINK FOR THE SPECIFIC NUMBERS), has the new Edelbrock intake with fresh gasket, the carburetor is a Holley 4v 600 cfm unit, the valve covers were taken off to see the clean rockers when we pulled the numbers, has just excellent compression in the 161 to 169 psi readings that is better than stock, this has the ‘A’ Code exhaust manifolds that lead to the brand new correct full dual aluminized ‘H’ pipe exhaust system with new hangers and mufflers, the final professional tune and fresh high tech oil effort just completed is so this very nice and rare car will perform so well for Driven Show, 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,

underchassis: here is a top area of this really special car is the underchassis…floors and torque boxes, the exceptional rust free floors are really very stock, they are factory original, said condition is now well presented in the newly done proper show red oxide finish for a mirror at shows, has the proper convertible lower underchassis brace, no undercoating, this has the very nice lower valence factory rocker pinch welds that are really straight, note that the important Ford Mustang factory clear stampings on the lower rockers that are clear, these lower valence areas are really in very nice condition, 

Costing notes: starting in mid-2020, the costings to build and restore classic cars is climbing, we are faced with limited supply from the orient today, even when we can find our top quality parts, paints and tires, our costings are way higher, shipping is 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 top quality but are forced to raise our prices with the big nut we have today, 

Summary: note that this has many mechanicals upgrades so this can be enjoyed for the serious classic Mustang collector who demands a car that car drives as well as it looks, starting with a solid ‘C’ code convertible, this is now uprated to better than stock ‘A’ code ++ engine build, has the top condition uprated built dated 289cid engine, has the fresh front dual line power disc brakes and new rear drum brakes, Ford power steering, new white power top with split glass window, great wheels and tires, now the work to be finished Summer 2020, the final presentation shown with the striking body and the beautiful paint color, the dual line front disc brakes make this a great classic Mustang to drive and enjoy, now offered at $43,950
