In America the Ford Mustang has never lost its appeal and one of the most desirable examples remains the classic, first-generation model.
But not every enthusiast can afford or even find a mint condition 1964-1966 Mustang so Ford is no selling new body-shells of the first-gen model. Available in the coveted convertible body shape the Mustang body shells start at USD$15,000. The bare metal shell uses modern steel and welding procedures, which makes it stronger and more durable than the original ’60s shells.
Naturally there is plenty of work left to do once you have a shell with the powertrain, suspension, brakes, electrics and interior trim all needed to be sourced and fitted. In the States all these parts can be purchased from suppliers, but for those on a budget a rusted-out first-gen Mustang would make for a suitable donor car.
