Ford Motor Co (http://autos.yahoo.com/ford). will soon sell brand-new 1965 (http://autos.yahoo.com/used-cars/overview?distance=any&sortcol=price&sortdir=up&modelyearub=1965&make=ford&model=mustang&askpricelb=any&askpriceub=any&deliverymileagelb=any&deliverymileageub=any&listingtype=used)Ford Mustangs for just $15,000 each. The only hitch: There's some assembly required.

As part of its Ford Reproduction business, Ford revealed today it had approved a new stamping of the steel bodies for first-generation Mustang that buyers could then build into their own 1964 1/2 through 1966 Mustang, using whatever engine, axles, interior and other parts they can find on their own.

The first-generation Mustangs rank as America's most-restored vehicle, and the cottage industry of reproduction parts has grown to where it's possible to build a Mustang just as it would have appeared on the showroom floor in the mid-1960s, down to the pushbutton AM/FM radio (http://us.lrd.yahoo.com/SIG=11tob7hsv/EXP=1321046600/**http%3A//vintagevibes.net/65-66_mustang.htm).

Ford says the new body shell built by California-based Dynacorn (http://us.lrd.yahoo.com/SIG=12abbci0l/EXP=1321046600/**http%3A//www.dynacornclassicbodies.com/ford_models2.html) has been improved only slightly with modern welding techniques and rustproofing, and comes out of the crate nearly ready for paint and assembly. The company already offers metal bodies for Mustangs from 1967 through 1970, and has been in talks with Ford to remake the original body of the Ford Bronco. There's still life in those old horses yet.

Very cool, they need to bring back the Classic Broncos or at least come out with a new one

This article shows the convertible. Do you know if the 2+2 model is coming too?

11-04-11, 04:06 PM
Disregard. I found the web site and see that several year models are available.

I've heard that the 65/66 Fastback is coming soon. And keep in mind that 15K does not include the hood or fenders.

It would be fun to build up a new 69 with modern technology but the cost would be so high in the end buying a new car makes more sense but then when did a dream have to make sense?

They are nice but.... Chinese made, Dynacron.. I know, I know but something wrong about a Mustang, besides a Htwheels, being made in China.....:1cool:

Yea, I was really bummed when I learned that some time ago. But hey, most repro parts for the classics come from China too - that would explain why most of them fit like sh*t!:mrgreen: Guess it can't be avoided

No sh*t! They are made in China? That makes my loyalty to Ford suspect.... I was talking to my son tonight about maybe ordering a 69 and building it up over the next five years. I won't do that now if these are really made in China. I thought this was a California company.
