Default Dynacorn 1965 fastback

Has anyone considered the 1965 fastback desert Mustang shell? It seem like it pretty solid has anyone used one of the things? Like I said it looks good from the photos.
Right now I have a chance to get a shell that is a legit "A" code fastback shell that is in the same condition as the desert Mustang shell.

Not quite sure what a desert mustang shell is, but if you're contemplating a real shell vs. a repro shell in the same condition, what's the hold up? Of course, I'm missing what a desert shell is.

Deasrt Mustangs is a place out in AZ where they take Coupes and convert them into Fastbacks. The Fastback that I am looking at here is a TRUE 5T09****** fastback shell and is going for half the price as the brand new repo shell and in the same condition as new also.

If the shells are equal, I would go for the original one. Title in hand is much easier to deal with, especially in California.

Hands down original (if you are concerned with resale)

I have a coupe to fastback conversion and it was done very well. Even you very knowledgable Mustang fans would not be able to tell unless you dug deep in the trunk.

Given that, for a nice build, I think in the end a real fastback is worth $5K more than a conversion car.

i never ever seen a fastback with that 1966 3 prong thing on the quarter inlay. as for as i know a fastback never came with them. so now we can tell ! i need a thing that looks like a tripped out circut breaker ! i second a real fastback is worth more then a conversion.

A body shop in San Jose CA took a rusted fastback and a california coupe and did the swap. From a metal standpoint, my car is almost identical from a factory produced fastback. There is really no way to tell, because there is metal in the same places as it came from the factory. They did not put in the brackets for the rear seat, but since I was going to be fabricating a package tray anyway, it didn't matter. They have claimed to do 10 of them. I am a picky guy and they really did a nice job on the metal work. I picked it up from there, sorted out the drivetrain (351W, toploader) picked up all the parts to put it back together, had it painted and now have a pretty nice ride for about $5K less than I would have if I started with a fastback. However, I think the value of the car is $5K less too, so not sure I gained much on the whole venture. However, it was a good starting point for what I wanted to do; V8 4speed disc brake car and it had a lot of the expensive shelby parts there; front valence, hood, quarter windows, roll bar and it was a pretty straight car.

The places I have talked to in AZ that do these conversions with Dynacorn parts have jigs, fixtures to make them straight and correct. The cost to do the metal conversion, if you bring them a coupe is $5500 and to buy a car, with the metal work done and a title $9,500.

This is the place I am talking about...It is in arizona and they have the Shells for sale for $9500.00 ! Desert Mustangs is the place.

So they can take a coupe for 5500.00 and make a fastback with fastback parts for only 5500.00?
WOW, I thought it was more than that. But I did know about the shell for 9500 though..not sure if they are a good deal at that price.
