Dynacorn is known for its high quality body parts and sheet metal but they also offer complete body shells. These replacement body shells are perfect for anyone that wants to restore a car from the ground up. Each car shell is GM / Ford licensed to ensure the highest quality possible. You now don’t have to search for a restoration project when you can start one today!
These Replacement Body Shells are a licensed restoration part completely assembled from the firewall to the tail lamp panel and from the frame rails to the windshield frame. Each body shells 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.
The body shells are not completely ready to be finished, they are as close as you can get not being assembled or built on an assembly line, there will still be some fitting and working to make everything line up. Just the same; as if you were working with a 40 year old body shell.
The steel used in the body shell program is 1006 universal automotive grade steel coated with special Galvanization to protect against rust.. In most cases the gauge will be thicker than that of the original.
Thickness of steel increased:
Trunk floor 0.8 to 1.0 m/m
Rocker panel 1.6 to 2.0 m/m
Rocker Panel Inner Brace 3.0 m/m
Rear frame rails 1.6 to 2.3 m/m
Firewall & torque bar 1.0 to 1.2 m/m
Each body is inspected and worked on by hand Increased amounts of CO2 have been used during welding that tightens the tolerances and helps to reduce road noise. All replacement parts have been increased in thickness to accommodate a stiffer better replacement body shell. Increased thickness, better tolerances, use of more CO2 in welding gives you a product that is unequaled in the restoration parts industry. The steel possesses fewer additives allowing it to be a bit more flexible and workable than the original.
