Iconic Ford Mustangs from the 1960s are highly sought after amongst those seeking classic cars for sale, but now the manufacturer responsible for this range is making it easier for enthusiasts to own one from this era.
Ford has started a new initiative, which will see it sell the shells which are identical to the Mustangs built between 1964 and 1966, allowing those interested in restoration to create whatever model they want from this basic blueprint.
Although these vehicles will resemble classic cars, they will have several benefits over typical restoration projects, because the freshly forged metal will be easier to weld and should be far more durable than the originals.
Ford is primarily building the convertible Mustang body for sale to those with the skill to turn it into a fully functioning replica of classic cars from the company's heyday.
According to Ford's Dennis Mondrach, the Mustang models from the mid-1960s are America's most popular restoration project choices, but with scrap yard stocks typically containing examples that are rusted and damaged beyond repair, it can be difficult to find a workable vehicle to start with.
Full rust proofing on the new metal shells will ensure long lasting resistance to the elements and a starting price of $15,000 is all you need to invest.
