Originality in a Mustang has no real value unless it is a rare model like a Shelby or a 69 or 70 Boss. Restomod Mustangs if done well often sell for much more than restored cars which still have 40 year old technology handling, stopping, steering and gearboxes. They built millions so old Mustangs are not like Capri Peranas or Can Ams.
Classic Recreations in the USA sell Dynacorn-bodied new 67 Mustangs for $125,000 plus for the basic model.

Some of us prefer the 40 year old technology, just as vinyls sound better than CD.
And yes...they did build millions, so why build more? Why not take one of the million original Mustangs & upgrade the mechanics at a fraction of the price? Since originality in a Mustang has no real value.

I agree Tony, Dynacorn does nothing for me,I can only hope they don't start making clone 62 Bubbletops.
Knowing you are driving a fourty year old car feels much better for me.

Gents as with woman taste differs.... Willing seller, willing buyer will always apply. The challenge for people trying to make a living from the industry, is what will the opinion of most people be?

I've allways loved cars, but only recently migrated from the German brigade to the American muscle market, not for any other reason than budget.

Being in Durban however, we have limited specialised motor and panel shops, and other than the annual Cars in the Park, little decent gatherings.

Point is, it is a difficult industry to make a living in.... Almost need to listen to what everyone wants, and somewhere be flexible and make a plan!

Just keep on rodding!

Thats exactly right - on my personal wish list is an original Capri Perana and Can Am -I would drive those as original as possible so I sit in both camps.

That's not true. Big block Mustangs and convertibles hold value very well over here. Shelby's and the Bosses are in a different league being the very low production numbers. But now days a S-code 390 car pulls good money, especially if it is properly restored.

DEMAND....that is the reason Dynacorn is reproducing Mustang and Camaro shells. There aren't millions of original cars left and now days you can spend US$25K just on body and paint work to save a car. I've been down this road and it is what it driving guys to buy a new shell and fit it with their taste in engine, interior, drivetrain, and suspension. Most guys want a car that is dead nuts dependable, fun to drive, and not a headache to maintain. The move here is away from garage queens and 100 point restos that are too valuable to enjoy so building a car from a new shell is gaining in popularity. Besides, it's a lot more economical to put your money into the engine, drivetrain, and suspension than into repairing and replacing rusted, dented, and rotted away metal.

I would like to get hold of one of these bodies as the real thing is getting harder to find.. and yes the origonal ones do hold value for being origonal.
On the other hand watch out when buying a 67 dont get fooled and pay top dollar for "THE REAL THING" only to find out its one of these repo bodies.

I wish they only used these bodies to make elaenors and not cut up the real thing :evil:
You either love em or hate em!!!!!!!
