Remember that article last month, about the brand-new 1964 body shells? We can smell a series of installments coming on, right up to the modern day...

Anyone who's ever owned or restored a classic car will know exactly how badly rust can ravage the body of an automobile. The older the car, the more susceptible it is to tin-rot, and having to cut out crumbling sheetmetal is the stuff of nightmares for any enthusiast.

US company Dynacorn knows this, and to save car restorers any rust-related headaches the company manufactures a range of complete, all-steel replacement bodies for a number of classic American musclecars.

The latest addition to their catalogue is the 1967 Ford Mustang Convertible, which is so faithful a reproduction of the original bodywork that Ford has certified it as an officially-endorsed restoration part.

Not only is it like a brand-new body - it's better than brand-new. The steel used for the Dynacorn stampings is thicker than OEM, and welded together using modern techniques.

Using more up-to-date metallurgy, the Dynacorn bodies should also be more resistant to rust than that used by the original 1967 Mustang.

Dynacorn sells the 1967 Mustang convertible body for US$15,500. It's a lot of money for a bare chassis, but it's certainly a cost-effective way to get an extensively rust-damaged restoration project back on the road.
