New 67 Dynacorn Project

It's a Dynacorn '67 Fastback. I picked it up last week at a local freight terminal. I've been looking for a '67 fastback for a couple of years now, and they were either way to expensive or a total basket case. With the Dynacorn, I can build it the way I want to, and won't have a bunch of scrap to get rid of.
It will have a Street or Track coil over suspension, 3 link rear with a Watts link and a 9" rear. Power will be a Dart 363, and a TKO600 trans.
The body is not bad at all, Dynacorn now has a spot welder, so there are very few plug welds. The door gaps look good ,except at the top near the door handle, but it's a problem with the doors, and can be fixed.
Almost all the parts are now being produced, I may have to scour the JY to find a couple of under dash braces, but so far, that's all I've found to be lacking.
It's probably going to remain on the trailer until I get a rotisserie.

Now that's a really cool project..Planning to make it into a GT350 clone?

Here's an older build thread of one, you might gain some insight from.

That's pretty cool!

How do you title the carÖ does it come with an MSO/ CO that you take to the DMV and license it as a '67 Ford Mustang?

It comes with a CO, Louisiana is pretty easy, they just want to know where the parts came from and if the state taxes were paid. They will then charge me tax on the stuff I didn't pay tax on. Plates are about $6.00 a year. It also needs a safety inspection and a State Police inspection, I think they are just looking for stolen parts. There is no smog check in my area, so none of the heartburn that California put me through with the FFR. I'm not sure if it will be titled as a Mustang, or it could be a Dynacorn. It's anybody's guess.

It's going to be a restomod with a few trick changes. I never have liked the Elenore style, To me they look like someone threw a JC Whitney catalog at it and all the wings, scoops and lights stuck. Don't much care for Shelbys either.

A little progress. Finally got the body shell off the trailer and onto the rotisserie. I had to cut the transport frame up into three different sections to get it out from underneath the body. I'm going to turn the center section of the transport frame into a body cart. It already has the legs, all I need to do is bolt some casters to it. I have already drilled the shock towers for the Arning drop, and I'm going to reinforce the shock towers with some steel plate, plus re-weld some of the seams. My ideas so far, Frenched tail lights, and a side fill fuel filler. Also looking at an R model front valance And depending on the wheels I get, possibly some flared fenders. Here's some photos.

If you are doing coil-overs in the front look into significantly reinforcing the shock tower area. It was only built to take shock absorber loads and isn't strong enough to take the spring loads too. This is going to be really fun to watch.

Really nice John!!!

I'll be watching this one for sure... I had heard some bad things about some of the early Dynacorn complete shells. It's good to know that they've increased the quality!

'67 Dynacorn project

I'm moving my build thread to this forum instead of the OT forum.

Engine ordered yesterday from fordstrokers.com It's a Dart 363 with TrickFlow 205 cc heads. Woody says it will take him about 5 months to complete it. Woody also recommended a Pro Systems 750 carb, and a Victor Jr intake. That sort of surprised me, I told him what the engine was going into and expected him to recommend the Edel RPM Air gap intake. I used a Victor jr on my Cobra, but it only weighed about 2100lbs, the '67 will probably weigh about 1000 lbs more.

As for parts, so far I've received the Unisteer rack & pinion, Ididit steering column, Hydroboost unit, clutch & pressure plate and the Strange Eng. 9" center section with 3.70 gears and a Eaton truetrac diff. Plus a bunch of small stuff I got from e bay. Yesterday I started modifying the chassis to fit the 3d link bracket. Hopefully the rest of the suspension will be here soon.

The T56 Magnum and all the parts that go with has been shipped, and it should be ready to pick up next Monday at the freight terminal.

I've seen that. He got an earlier body, the ones they sell now don't have the crooked brackets or the welded on rear valance, and the door gaps look much better. Dynacorn is now assembling them in California.

A little progress today, got the floor brace rough cut to make room for the Magnum, I may weld in some 1/8" plate to regain some of the stiffness.


Fitting the 3d link bracket and the cage for the watts link.

As other said. I am jealous too. Subscribed!

I have some questions please. one time I tried to find all the parts (as interior, body panels, seats, not the mechanical parts) and the quotation went above $20`000! I bilieve it reached $28`000. So are you planing on getting a donor car? or u will buy them new? or???

Also, you mentioned that is comes with a CO, is it a certificate of origin with a Chassis number? I mean like what FFR give us?

Great build keep it going please. I might get me one over here.

The price for the body shell is around $16000 plus shipping from California. I buy a lot of parts from e bay, like the wiper motor, glove box door, etc. The drive line will be all new from various vendors. Soft parts such as the interior will be from one of the Mustang vendors, probably CJ Pony Parts.
I thought about buying a donor, but the price for a donor is getting prohibitive. As a friend on a Mustang board said, "They will charge you $100 for a rusty nail, and say it was once in a Mustangs tire." The 'all in' price will be around $40K. They can be done cheaper, if you stick to stock type parts, but where's the fun in that?.

Dynacorn sent me a Certificate of Origin and a chassis number that gets riveted to the chassis.

Had some problems fitting the Watts link bracket. Apparently The Dynacorn body and the '67 Mustang floor pan are slightly different, probably about 1/8"~1/4" different on some of the measurements. The Watts link bracket as delivered by Street or Track is about 1/8" too wide to fit the frame rails. The saddle part of the bracket was too narrow to slide over the frame member. After a phone call, SorT sent me a Watts link bracket with the mounting ends tacked in place, so if they needed modification it would be easy to bust it apart and make the necessary mods. I still need to shorten the bracket by about 1/8" and I'll get it finished welded by a certified Tig welder that I know.

Just curious if you'd seen Bitchin' Rides (Kendig It Designs) Mustang...

Pretty sweet.. A lot of subtle changes adding up to a relatively new design that is very complimentary to the original...

I've seen that. They do good work, but that Mustang is just not quite my style.
