Have you guys seen the debate going on the Mustangs Plus web-site about the new body shell offered by Dynacorn International. What do you guys think?
Please let me, once again, clear up any confusion lingering in the industry. FORD is not suing us for anything especially Trademark violations. We have been upfront and honest with FORD since day one. The body shell is being licensed as a replacement restoration body shell with a part number of MU67FB and will be disignated by FORD as such. Will rollers be available? I am sure by any number of enterprising dealers. Will there be unscrupulous people building cars and trying to pass them off as real? Unfortunately, probably so, but no worse that they already do with stock Mustangs making them into Shelby Clones etc. Will these body shells shake up the industry? We certainly hope so. The retail will be $15,500.00 plus a $495.00 crating charge with the freight being additional. But realistically, how much does it cost in a reputable restoration shop to get an old hulk to this condition? $25,000-$35,000? I think so and possibly more. So what you are starting with is a brand new platform with doors and deck lid allready installed with better than factory tolerances. I personally feel this project to be a huge boon to the Mustang industry.

They been doing that with the 26-40 vehicles for some time now. Since its licensed by Ford, there shouldnt be any problem with a rebody of a rusty car, provided someone doesnt say its "all 100% original survivor" and asks more money for it. With better tolerances and build quality than 40 years ago, the new bodied mustangs could possibly be worth more than our old rusty stuff to some.
Wouldnt mind having one, and anyway its the overly wealthy people who will complain and buy these, leaving the rusty stuff for us..
Hell, who knows. How are the sales of the Cumarrow version of the Dynacorn body affecting the Brand X market?
I would think that it would make the cars that are still in original shape worth more. Not necessarily cars like yours and mine. ie. Heavily restomoded cars. The people that would buy your car or my carare probably not very interested in originality and neither will the customers who purchase these I wouldn't think.
Governments are extremely dangerous.
Death, imprisonment, theft of property
and loss of freedom will result from
giving them too much power.
Man that price just keeps going up. I thought they were going to retail for about 10K. Now they are over 15? I like knowing what you have to start with (rust free, new). It will be interesting to see how the Feds react to this as far as the VIN. [sm=interesting.gif]
