For Sale: BRAND NEW '67 Mustang

Yes, brand-spanking new. Yes, never used. If fact, the '67 Mustang is so new it was built in 2004. Confused?
Okay, I'm lying, but only a little. You can't buy a brand-new '67
Mustang, yet, but you can buy a brand-new '69 Camaro. Word is they're building '69 Camaros now, then they'll add '67 Mustangs to the lineup, possibly followed by '69 Mustangs and maybe '70 'Cudas. Who's "they", you ask? "They" is Classic Automotive Restoration Specialists (CARS).
We're talking full steel bodies, put together better than the originals. Cost? Try $12,000 USD for a bare shell convertible with doors and a decklid, but no front clip. Hardtops will be availible in 2005 and will only run a few thousand more. The bodys are primed and dipped and come with a lifetime warranty against rust and corrosion.
CARS will even offer complete, running-and driving, painted convertibles in bare bones trim for $40,000 USD.

Yes they are! I got mine 6 weeks ago. It came in a BIG wooden crate. The amount of labor saved over a total resto is immeasurable and the finished car should be better than a fresh-off-the-assembly-line vehicle. I'm pretty excited to be building a "new" Camaro convertible. :P
I was wondering when/if the classic 'Stangs would appear. If the Camaro works out well, I'd certainly try building a new / old Mustang convertible. The thing that discourages me most about the restoration of an old car, (even a "rust free" vehicle) is the usually extensive prep / repair of something that's been out in the weather for 40 years. The availability of new bodies to start with brings a huge smile to my face. :)

Just saw something in last month's Mustang Times. You can get a brand new 69 Shelby GT3500E directly from Shelby. You provide them with a standard 67-69 Coupe and they do a complete retrofit. You even get new matching VINs indicating it's a real Shelby.

No, I brought up this possibilty years ago right here in this group, citing the all-new-steel Street Rod industry as a forebearer of what will happen when it gets to hard to find good 60's cars. I hate being right. No I don't.

Spell "bodies" right. The current misspelling has gone rampant over the last year to the point where the damn ad proofreaders for the publishing companies can't get it right.
They are considering dipping, but right now spraying, according to the article.

Time for me to stock up on Arizona rust-free originals, so I can sell Chevys to finance my Fords.

Ad proofreaders, huh? Wow! It's nice to know I'm at their level, and I rarely proofread my stuff. But I'll work at it... won't promise perfection though.
And you can work on getting your to & too right.

What is happening is the 6-'s iron has character. Something lacking in todays cars. Yes, the new GTO can run rings around a 67, but can't match the look of those stacked headlights and hood.
Since there is a limited amount of old iron around, and prime examples selling close to six digits, why not jump into the market with a new 'old' body and parts?
Heck, look at the hot-roders who can put together a new model 'T' right off of the Internet. There has to be a market for them, and so there is supply.
Now,did anyone hear if a 71 Trans Am is in the offerings??????

I picked up the magazine yesterday. Wow! '69 camaro convertibles, then the hardtop, then a '67 Mustang fastback. Discussions have already begun on '69 Mach 1's and '70 Cudas. What was that? * '69 Mach 1's * !!!!! That's what I want! This opens up more options. Wow! A *new* '69 Mach 1 with a *new* aluminum 427 sideoiler with a *new* 6 speed T-56 tranny with a *new* and improved suspension with *new* four wheel disc brakes with a *new* sound system. It's, it's, it's , it's , it's too much! I think I'm going to f.a..i...n....t...........
