Donald N. Frey, one of the fathers of the Ford Mustang and later president and chief executive of Bell & Howell, died March 5 at an Evanston, Ill., hospital after a stroke, said his son Christopher. He was 86. Frey was the product planning manager for the Mustang, a sports car launched with equal parts fanfare and trepidation at the 1964 World's Fair in New York. He conceived the prototype in 1962 and wrung a go-ahead for production out of Henry Ford II. The Mustang, of course, was one of the great successes in automotive history, and Frey became a revered figure among its many devotees.
