We are pleased to announce the pre-order of our Fastback Replacement Body Shell. This replacement body shell is styled after the famous 1965-66 Ford Mustang®. A restoration part completely assembled from the radiator support to the tail lamp panel and from the frame rails to the windshield frame.
The price of $15,999.99 has not yet been finalized but we think it will be in this ballpark based on the pricing of the other bodies. The official price will be released in Spring 2014. We do expect more customers than the initial supply. By pre-ordering a replacement body shell from Champion Mustang, you will be placed on our VIP list to be one of the few to receive this new replacement body shell once final payment has been made. All we require is a $100.00 non-refundable deposit. This amount will be applied toward your body shell.UPDATE: Expected to be released Winter of 2014.
Our body includes most of the structural parts, brackets and braces welded in place, plus doors and deck lid already assembled. Very little body work or adjustments are required and the hard part will be deciding on interior colors and keeping track of which bolt goes where.
Just think; no more cutting and welding in floor pans, no more trying to locate replacements for rusted out braces or struggling to make the wheelhouse line up to the trunk pan and the quarter panel. All the hard work is already done. New radiator support to tail lamp panel; fitted, assembled and welded. How many hours (or weeks) does that save you? That’s what makes this shell so cool.
A Vehicle or Vessel Identification Number (VIN) is issued by a manufacturer or State Licensing authority. There are three ways for a vehicle to obtain a number.
1) An existing VIN on a vehicle that is titled in your name can be transferred to a repair part (as instructed by your State authority).
2) A number may be issued by your State to ID a custom built vehicle when it passes a safety and number verification inspection.
3) A licensed manufacturer issued a VIN when the vehicle (or vessel) is made and ready for delivery. This can only be issued when a "turn key" (completed) car, truck, boat or aircraft has been manufactured.
