Finally for the pony enthusiast! We are pleased to announce the arrival of Dynacorn Classic Bodies 1968 Mustang® Fastback Replacement Body Shell, complete with doors, trunk lid, radiator support, and reinforced big block shock towers. An Official Licensed Ford restoration part completely welded from the firewall to the tail lamp panel and from the frame rails to the windshield frame.
**In addition, as our thanks to you, we will send you a $1000 gift certificate from Muscle Car Metal/Just Sheet Metal which will allow you to purchase some of the other parts you will be needing at our incredibly low prices.
Body includes most of the structural parts, brackets and braces welded in place, plus doors and deck lid already assembled. Very little body work or adjustments are required and the hard part will be deciding on interior colors and keeping track of which bolt goes where.
Just think; no more cutting and welding in floor pans, no more trying to locate replacements for rusted out braces or struggling to make the wheelhouse line up to the trunk pan and the quarter panel. All the hard work is already done. How many hours (or weeks) does that save you? That's what makes this shell so cool.
All Dynacorn Replacement Body Shells are encased in raw-steel 2" x 2" tube cages w/shoes for forklift transport.
These cages are welded and bolted to the bottom of the shell. Prior to shipping, each shell and cage will be crated
in particle board. All bodies come EDP coated but not painted.
If you have a rusty shell and you want to start fresh with a new one, we can help. We are an official distributor of the new "Dynacorn Classic Bodies" program.
You can now purchase a complete metal body. These bodies are made to factory specification. Each body is sealed and primed with a rust-preventative product prior to being crated for shipment.
These are Ford licensed restoration parts completely welded from the firewall to the tail lamp panel and from the frame rail to the windshield frame.
These shells are not returnable. Due to the complex work and equipment needed to change a shell, we suggest a professional body or restoration shop to do the work.
This is drop shipped directly from the assembler to your door (forklift required). This body is crated and shipped by common carrier, however pickup is available (San Bernardino, California).

Q: How do I know the welding will be adequate and up to industry standards?
A: Each shell will be welded with state-of-the-art welding equipment in one of the finest assembly plants in the United States. Our assembly partners have been in the restoration market for over 20 years and their work has never been questioned nor has any weld they have ever done failed. That's a pretty good record in itself.
Q: How easy is it to build?
A: This shell is complete so there is no necessity to find and weld parts other than what is required in the front end. It assembles on the sub-frame, so you don't even need a rotisserie.
Q: Are these body shells ready to be finished?
A: No. Whereas they are as close as you can get not being assembled or built on an assembly line, there will still be some fitting and working to make everything line up. Just the same; as if you were working with a 40 year old body shell.
Q: What is the quality of steel used and are the gauges the same as original?
A: The steel used in our body shell program is 1006 universal automotive grade steel. In most cases the gauge will be thicker than that of the original. The steel possesses few additives allowing it to be a bit more flexible and workable than the original.
Q:What about the VIN?
A: A Vehicle or Vessel Identification Number (VIN) is issued by a manufacturer or State Licensing authority. There are three ways for a vehicle to obtain a number:
An existing VIN on a vehicle that is titled in your name can be transferred to a repair part (as instructed by your State authority).
A number may be issued by your State to ID a custom built vehicle when it passes a safety and number verification inspection.
A licensed manufacturer issued a VIN when the vehicle (or vessel) is made and ready for delivery. This can only be issued when a "turn key" (completed) car, truck, boat or aircraft has been manufactured.
