At least heís honest about it and welcomes people to come look at it. There is a 67 fastback thatís just a roof, qtrs and rockers thatís still together for $4k. Not sure how heís getting the difference between the his price and dynacorn body.

I honestly donít think thatís a terrible price. People have paid plenty more for a roof-converted car before. If you sourced a cheap coupe that was pretty much all there, you could find yourself in a fairly affordable fastback. If you did the work yourself of course.

I would be concerned what the heat did to the metal. It obviously was hot enough to melt the lead out of the seams so I don't know if anything is really usable. Whomever buys it is literally buying a title and 3 VIN stampings.

From the pictures it looks like it got hot enough to warp the metal. Wont that much heat cause the sheet metal to become brittle? Like cobra94svt said, at least the seller us honest about it. I'm just bitter because I can't even afford this 67/68 fastback

For another $6k you can have a dynacorn car. Not that hard to title. By the time you repair all the rust, and warped metal, you will have a dynacorn car anyway. Maybe $4500??

That's honestly not a bad price, that car is probably still salvageable.

I see potential here. I see a lot more than just a roof, vin, and title. It’s not something I would be interested in though. This car needs a lot of work, a lot of parts, and a trust fund to return to glory

Cut the car through the roof pillars, and at the rear of the door opening, across the middle of the floor. Sell the 1 piece floor pan. Save any fastback parts of the floor, etc.

Buy a rust free coupe, as complete as possible. In the Dallas area, they can be had for $800 or less, rolling, quasi complete.

Cut the identical section off coupe, weld it back, transfer any fastback brackets and VIN to the REPAIR PANEL. If you are lucky, it would still have the wiring, even AC, etc. in the dash, maybe suspension, wiring, lines, in the front clip.

Soda blast the back, prime the whole thing.

Really? Some of you guys are advocating fraud.

Ask yourself this question: If you bought a Mustang fastback and later found it had been cobbled together from a coupe, 3 vin stampings and a title, how would you feel?

Like you had been ripped off I bet.

I was using a coupe as a representative item. The front clip is the same between a couple and fastback. It is not fraud, it is repair.

The majority of the car is the fastback. Would you feel better is the car was clipped, and a bunch of repair panels from China used to build it, because everything in a front half (not just a coupe) can be bought as reproduction.

This type of REPAIR PANEL was sold by Ford years ago: No fraud there.

https://www.cjponyparts.com/cj-class...SABEgKmVvD_BwE

Cars are routinely clipped and halves put together.

Not fraud. Extensively repaired, not fraud.

Bob, if you walked into the Texas DMV and told them you had a title, vin stamping and parts of a car that you want to install on a car that has a different vin, and that you want to replace that second vin with the first vin: What advice would the DMV give you?

Playing hocus pocus with titles and vins is fraud and dishonest, regardless of the spin or loopholes to justify the reasoning.

I don't see where Bob said anything about transferring the Fastback VIN to the Hardtop. He only said to transfer the roof. Transferring the VIN would be illegal.


FWIW- I asked a Texas Auto Theft Agent about using a Dynacorn body assembly as a replacement part for a rusted out Mustang and he told me that since the Dynacorn is not a titled vehicle that is not illegal. So whomever bought the burned out '67 may plan on doing that. However I don't see that it's economically feasible (at least not now) because those Dynacorns are up in price to almost $20K now. By the time you bought everything else to complete the car you'd have $50K invested and '67 Fastbacks aren't selling that high.
