Buy It Or Build It?
Admittedly, this is a huge job that may well be outside the scope of what the average guy would want to attempt in his garage. If that's the case, you can buy a complete shell from Recon for $9,500. The company builds '65 to '68 Mustangs in either fastbacks or convertibles. The bodies are delivered just as you see in this picture. That is a bargain considering each body comes with a title in addition to all-new sheetmetal. You won't have the hassles of registering the car as a re-body or a new car, which is subject to your state's emissions laws. Recon does more than Mustangs, too. You can send Recon any American muscle car, and the crew will recondition it for you.
