Are you aware of the Dynacorn remakes? If you're planning a showcar or a streeter that you want to look perfect, this might be a good choice. The '67 project cars approved by Ford and shown in Ford's tent at SEMA '07 in Nov were based on Dynacorn pieces. They are all new, dimentionally perfect and arrive damage-freee due to individual cage & panel casing. I saw the raw pieces and two finished project cars at SEMA -- outstanding! But they do have MSRPs starting at $15K ('67 fastback). Not sure if this is what you're looking for tho. Good luck in any event!

<also, check out page-3 of the pdf link at the bottom of that webpage.

Yes I am aware of the Dynacorn product. At that price I mise well spend it on a car that has the rest of the parts. For a shell I thinks thats it's to much.

That is not a lot of money when you start replacing structual components and end up with a car going down the road like a crab.

When you start paying a shop to put it on a frame jig and start cutting the car apart. Be very carful buying a 30 year old car. They weren't real big on rust prevention back then. It is very easy to cover rust up, Be aware of new undercoating. I got caught with sheet metal over the torque boxes and a fresh coat of undercoating.

In attempt to stop the car from sagging a former owner welded I beams in the inner frame rails.

It just kept getting worst



I rebuilt a 66 convertable nastiest job i've ever done. burnt out 3 black and decker 4" grinders. Lot of time trying to keep everthing straight while cutting torque boxes and inner rails.

I think in retrospect 15k would have been a bargain and probably ended with a straiter car

Here is a 1965 Fastback I did a full resto on took me 2 years to do it. I replaced everything on the car. Put new shock towers on, new inner front fenders on replaced floor pans. Just to name a few sheet meatl items. after all said and done I had $20,000.00 into the whole car including purchase price. I did all of the work so I save $$$ on that process.

Yeah the '67's are sharper looking to me too. If you found one for $5k I'd be shocked. It would nearly have to be a rolling shell. I sold a bare '69 fastback shell a year ago for $4k. There was a '66 fastback for sale locally here that sold for $18,500 just last week. It was in nice condition. Good luck with your search. Let us know if you find one and for what price.
