1967 Ford Mustang Coupe-To-Fastback Conversion

Last Month We Wrote The Overview. This Month We Document The Job. Here's How To Do A . . .

We can attest: There's more to this job than sawing off the coupe stuff and slapping on the fastback stuff. Way more. And if you aren't precise when welding on the fastback parts, you will have a big mess on your hands. Good luck trying to get the door gaps to line up or the glass to fit right. We alluded to it in last month's installment-this isn't a job for the faint of heart. Yet, it is not out of the realm of an ambitious soul who has some metalworking experience and a lot of patience for careful measuring.

We spent a week with the guys at Recon Classic Car Bodies and watched them build a fastback out of our '67 coupe and a convertible out of a nasty-looking '65 coupe. Even if you don't plan on doing this job, pay attention to the build-there are a lot of cool metalworking tricks that will apply to any project CC readers may feel up to taking on.

Doesn't Dynacorn already make a fastback body? I'd go that route.

That sounds like a lot of work. I think I would just find one and buy one

No, not really. Aren't they heavier?
