    Ford has expanded its licensed reproduction body shell offerings. The company announced professionals
    and enthusiasts alike would be able to purchase brand-new 1965 Ford Mustang Convertible shells earlier
    this year, and now the automaker has added the 1967 Ford Mustang Convertible shell to the mix, as well.
    Now, instead of being forced to source a shell and repair the inevitable rust, restorers can simply snap
    up new metal, thereby saving time and money in the process. Like the '65 Convertible, '67 Fastback and
    '69 Fastback, the '67 Convertible will carry a price tag of $15,995.

    that's probably 3 times the cost of the original car

    I think a '64 was $2,500... so it'd be at least that.

    This would still be cheaper than trying to restore a body to mint plus you wouldn't have all the spot welded sheet metal and bondo.

    I think it's a good deal for sure. Does it come primered or just bare metal?

    My parents bought a 67 Mustang because when I was a baby the only car they had was a MGB and I rode on my Mom's lap.

    Stoopy probably still thinks his car is better than a 60s era mustang.

    There seem to be some car lovers here. That reminds me. Have you seen Flathead here?

    Yeah, nothing quite like old iron. This is a link from a thread I posted Aug/2010 you might like.
    A 1954 Oldsmobile F-88 Convertible Concept Car. One of possibly three ever built. (Although $3.25 million seems a bit steep) :cool:
