This item is an excellent kit to convert your 67 Mustang Coupe to a fastback! These are by far the best products on the market.
Haven't seen this posted. Just ran across this ebay auction. :chainsaw:

Four pieces of sheetmetal. Not a lot of info or details. Ad seems more worried about the $3.50 added to each order than with the product they are selling. Seems to me they should say something about all the other parts the buyer is going to have to find! :horror:

Yeah lots of other parts to make/find

I wouldn't mind getting my hands on the lower rear glass frame (between the trunk and back-glass) Could have used one of those a while back

This is outright fraud. These panels are only skins, and there is a lot of inner structure that would be needed just to make a rolling shell. Some poor bloke is going to buy these panels and take them to a body shop just to get laughed out the door. What a joke.

I'm not defending the ad. but Dynacorn is going to release 67 Mustang fb bodies. I wouldn't be surprise if these are Dynacorn products and I would also hedge that all the stuctual parts are made as well. I would hopefully ASSume that all of the other parts as far as sheetmetal are inculed. I may and could be all wrong, just a guess on my part.

I saw that the other day also. Your right, the winner of this auction will be very dissapointed.
To Ripped, I have a spare lower frame, I think at least one of the flaps that goes into the trunk drip rail is missing...It's yours if you want it. P.M. me. They also make this part repro.

ok this is what i wrote to this guy and his response

"why are you trying to pull this off as a complete conversion from coupe to fastback. the roof is only a skin the quaters are only skins. some poor guy wanting a fastback is going to buy these then be extremly mad. this is what is call fraud. not only that it is not a complete conversion you still need all the interior parts and all the inner structure. i hope you decide to smarten up and pull your auction. if you dont i know ebay will because it has been reported to them as frud"





Dear Negative person,

You are incorrect and should do your research. Skins are not
involved. Next time try to be a bit more positive when inquiring
about products. Most people wouldn't give you the time of day
after such an email that you sent.

Sincerely,

J.D. Saxon/Superior Classic Mustang

Remember people - - be polite ( Roadhouse quote. :rofl

My question
Quote:
I have a '67 coupe. Is this everything I need to convert? Do I reuse my interior parts and back seat stuff? From the photos it just looks like some sheetmetal. What else is included? What else will I need? Thanks.
Their polite answer:
Quote:
Dear Lane,

This is only for the sheetmetal. The interior changes not part of this kit. This is just the basic items needed for the conversion. As far as interior we have upholstery. But not the seat frames. You need to get these used from Ebay or a salvage yard.

Sincerely,
J.D. Saxon
Superior Classic Mustang
Still don't know much, but he was polite. Guess I could get that fastback glass in a junkyard too? And all the interior panels? :wall:

Some Ebay Store items may not be in stock. We do stock all these parts, but our inventory fluctuates very rapidly. Please check availability if the item you are purchasing is time critical.
Translation: we don't actually have all the parts, please pay us and get frustated :horror:

So I guess he is saying the roof is complete, not just a skin. That must also mean the quarters include the inner structure around the vents. You would still need the structure around the trap door, the trunk hinge mounts, the structure between the wheelhouses and the door jambs. That's just off the top of my head, I am sure there is a lot more missing. I do hope an affordable complete kit comes out in the near future though.

BTW: Why is he being so evasive about what is there and what is not? My guess is this guy does not have a clue as to what is actually involved in a conversion, or he just does not care. He really needs to have one done with his parts before he attempts to cash in on the kit. JMHO

In the local yard by me, the 67 fb backlites, right next to the huge pile of 65-66 fb backlites, all nicely wrapped up to protect them them from the elements, how many do you want? :rofl:

Neat!! He is suddenly sold out :joker: I wrote to him as well and asked about drip rails, trunk support, inner fender support ect.. No reply. Anyone else notice that the parts are in Nevada but his store is supposed to be in Texas? :horror: I don't think I would not have touched this auction with a ten foot pole. Thank goodness no one actually bid on this thing. He does however promise he will be back to try to screw you into his 65- 66 conversion that is " comming in the future!" :no:

I wrote him as well. Got a reply in a an hour. This is what I wrote:

Hi there,
Your ad says this is a "kit". Does it have everything to convert my coupe to a fastback??
I hope these aren't just replacement skins for a fastback. If so, it wouldn't be a kit but just fastback replacement skins. My bodyman is waiting your reply before we order. Thanks.
Ron Pratt

His reply was:

Dear Ron,
The kit includes everything needed. We don't sell "skins" in this kit. Currently we are sold out. We will be posting again when the next production cycle is complete in China. We also will be having 65-66 Coupe to Fastback Conversion Kit also on the next production cycle. Next production cycle should be completed in November. We had no idea that we would sell 313 kits in less than a week. This was expected to last for a year!

Update, he did reply. here is the whole thing.

Just out of curiosity, What else would I have to get to complete this conversion? I know that the support structures for a coupe are completely different than those in a fastback. Are the roof supports, fastback quarter supports, upper window driprails along with the trunk area pass thru also included in this auction? Or will I also have to buy a doner fastback to make all of this work?

His reply:
The only thing you would need to save from a coupe is the bracket that is connected to the panel behind the rear window to the wheel well on both sides. The trunk drip rail is on the full quarter panels that are provides as well as the roof panel having a drip rail. It you are careful you can still use your tail panel. But if you mess it up we have a replacement. The kit is only the bare essentials.

So if you were looking for support after the sale, lotsa luck! Obviously no clue as to what is involved. Intended or not, it is fraud.
