All-new classic Mustang body joins official parts list

| 6 Dec 2012

A new and improved version of the ’67 Mustang convertible body has been released as a Ford-approved part costing less than £10,000.

The new shell is made from better-quality, thicker steel, is assembled using modern welding techniques and has its known stress points reinforced. It can also be fitted with Ford’s big-block engines.

Ford’s restoration parts licensing manager Dennis Mondrach said: “These days, the chances are fairly slim of finding a restorable, rust-free ’67 Mustang that has never been wrecked. As the value of classic Mustangs has increased over the years, garages, barns and scrapyards have been picked clean.

“Some minor panel adjustment and alignment still has to be done, but the body comes rust-proofed, plus is primed and ready for painting and assembly.”

Full bodyshells already available to restorers include the ’65 convertible, plus the ’67 and ’69 fastbacks.
