From the factory of corse.

When my sister worked at ford HQ she stated " They had such an extensive inventory or parts in most of the parts whare houses you could easily build anything from the 50's on up using all original parts".

The parts are there boys and girls you just got to have the $$$$ to purchase them

Oh and if your driving a new crown vic, she designed the ash tray.

National Parts Depot

Everything you need to restore a Mustang (I know from personal experience) and a Camaro.
Sheetmetal, trim, interior, everything is being reproduced.

It was all good, right up to the point where I read this:

What am I, made of money?!?!??

Holy crap that's expensive.


I'm hoping to get something like a vocational school or something to work on it, because there's no way I can spend more than 4 or 5 grand on the body!



... but thanks for thinking of me (although I also wonder if they'd do the 71-73 mustangs at all - they'd probably start with more popular 60's models)

Neither of those links sell crate bodies. One is a parts company (IMHO, one of the best for early Camaros), the other is some sort of restoration/ bodyshop.

Can someone who has access to the article tell me what the name of the company is that is selling them??

Seriously - if it's going to cost more than that to fix the body, I'll donate the damn thing to some school or something and try to claim a big tax write-off. I've already thrown WAAAY to much money away on this piece of junk, and I refuse to throw good money after bad. If I can get it into REASONABLE shape for 4 or 5, I'll do it - but more than that and I'm going to have to condider just walking away and learning a very expensive lesson

I think you should be able to do that, unless teh rust has just over run the body. Fenders aren't all that expensive, I am no body man, but I recall the roof pillars and torque box being hte most expensive areas, Floor pans are also not that big of an issue, they are readily availbale, and inexpensive.




I'm hoping you're right.

I've already got a new floorpan and a new rear panel (the both need replacing) so thsoe are ready tobe welded in.

There's a place across the river here (called mustang corral that has new fenders and refurbished orginal fenders - so I can pick those up without having to pay freight) - and a lot of the rest of the body work can probably be done pretty easily by a body shop.

We'll see how it works out - I'm going to try to find the time to go by a ciple of body shops this week - and have an appointment wit a really reputable body shop next monday.

So by next week I shoud have a much better idea of how happy or depressed I should really be

Wow- you have a body parts source and knowledge source right near you, w/in driving distance? No cost for UPS? Eeeeexcellent! You have it made- here in MA, all the old auto junkyards of my youth are GONE- no parts anywhere!

When I said that 4-5000 dollars seemed not enough, I should have clarified that by saying that the money won't be needed in huge amounts all at once. There will always be little things that need attention, and if you let them go, they turn into a major hassle, and big money pit. That's what often happens. Owners restore autos, auto seems ok, but little pinholes and bubbles develop....and soon....

So a lot of that money would have gone into re-re-doing the rustwork on fenders and rear quarter panels, since body work on metal will eventually have some sort of problem again, esp. if you live in a humid climate.

If you can get fiberglass repros, so much the better. Less weight, and no rust problems on those areas, ever again. Much cheaper, all the way round.

Thank her for me. Putting my knee against that thing is the only way to drive comfortably in those things.
