Dynacorn 67 Fastback. I just picked it up last night from the freight company. It will have a SorT coilover front and rear suspension with their 3 link, and a 9' rear axle. It will be small block powered. The door gaps look pretty good, except up near the door handle. Both sides will need some work. Apparently, Dynacorn invested in a spot welder, so far I haven't seen any plug welds. My next step is to rent a forklift and get it off the trailer and on to a rotisserie.

How are you going to register it?
In Louisiana it's pretty simple, it's registered basically the same way one would register a home built trailer. All they want to see is where the parts came from and if I paid taxes on those parts. The parts that I didn't pay taxes on will be paid at registration time. Also a safety inspection needs to be done, and a State Police inspection. There's no smog checks in my area so I don't have to worry about that silliness. The tags cost about $6.00 for 2 years. Dynacorn has a web page that outlines the registration requirements for each state. The last car I built was a FFR Cobra in California. If I can get through that nightmare, I think I can get it registered here.

Cool. Always wondered how people registered them without pulling the vin switcheroo.

Finally got the body shell off the trailer and onto the rotisserie. I had to cut the transport frame up into three different sections to get it out from underneath the body. I'm going to turn the center section of the transport frame into a body cart. It already has the legs, all I need to do is bolt some casters to it. I have already drilled the shock towers for the Arning drop, and I'm going to reinforce the shock towers with some steel plate, plus reweld some of the seams Here's some photos.

On the Same Path?

Very interesting. I'm on a similar path. I completed my Factory Five Racing roadster in March 2014 (after an eight year build). Registered it in California under the SB 100 process. I took delivery of my Dynacorn 1967 Fastback in August 2014. I'm installing a Heidts Pro-G front and rear end. I plan to use a Ford Coyote engine backed with a Tremec T56 six-speed transmission. I have some build pictures on my Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/britt.fussel) (I hope this link will work).

I need to start a build page on this site.

Engine ordered today from fordstrokers.com It's a Dart 363 with TrickFlow 205 cc heads. Woody says it will take him about 5 months to complete it. Woody also recommended a Pro Systems 750 carb, and a Victor Jr intake. That sort of surprised me, I told him what it was going into and expected him to recommend a Edel RPM Air gap intake. I used a Victor jr on my Cobra, but it only weighed about 2100lbs, the '67 will probably weigh about 1000 lbs more.
The T56 Magnum and all the parts that go with has been shipped, and it should be ready to pick up next Monday at the freight terminal.

Must be pretty awesome to work with all new and CLEAN parts! I swear that I remove about two layers of skin from my hands every weekend after working on the car, and my hands still are never 100% clean. My gloves never seem to stay on.

Very much looking forward to watching your progress, and watching you spend some serious coin! ;)

Woody is GREAT to work with! I've received my 408W several weeks ago. I believe his suggestions are based on what you tell him you want to do with your car.
For me, he did suggest the Edelbrock Air Gap and a Quick Fuel 750. I told him my hp goals and what I plan to do with my car. the engine hit the numbers on the dyno that I was looking for.
I also have T56 Magnum. I went with a quick time housing, Fidanza flywheel, McLead RST twin disk clutch and McLeod hryd TOB.
Can't wait to see more progress.

Picked up some new parts yesterday from Modern Driveline. That Magnum is a heavy SOB!

A little progress today, fitting the 3d link bracket and the Watts link bracket.Got the under floor brace rough cut to make room for the Magnum. I may weld in some 1/8" steel plate between the flanges to get back some of the strength I cut out.
