No. They sell a lot of Dynacorn parts though. So do many other outlets too. My favorite is NPD.

To repeat what I learned from Rick Schmidt of NPD, Dynacorn is a reseller. Dynacorn doesn't actually make anything. They buy components from multiple factories which stamp sheet metal. Those factories are constantly changing and so does the quality.

I like to order sheet metal from NPD. They keep up with what's going on the industry. So, you can NPD and ask them for the best available. They know and they'll have have it.
Israel, gimpystoy and FRC928 like this.

Klutch, thanks for the clarification on that... I did not realize that was the case. I guess I just thought Dynacorn was the manufacturer. Also,I see the value of listening to NPD Rick when he is able to give a little insight on the difference in his parts that he offers. Price should not be the ultimate determining factor!

Seems to me their ‘CJ Classics’ brand is a variety of different vendor names rebranded or grouped. For example, this CJ Classics kit includes Drake leaf springs: https://www.cjponyparts.com/cj-class...-1968/p/LSK16/.

CJ classics IS CJ Pony Parts. Id guess it better suits their expanded product line that's not mustang related

Indeed. The biggest lesson I learned from my Mach 1 project is, "Cheap parts are NOT a good deal!".

Dynacorn as a mfg has to be one of, if not the, greatest misconceptions in the industry.

Ex-wife,....."You drove how far for that thing?"
Daughter,..."Theres no inside and it stinks."
Friend,......."Dude, that’s a rusted pile."
Son,.........."This old car is cool."
