Dynacorn Bronco Body

As part of the research into a custom off-body eb build - I spoke with the team at Dynacorn. Not sure the general opinions on reproduction bodies but after speaking with them (I know them from the Mustang Universe) - it appears their Bronco Reproduction Body prototype is fall along. They are reviewing the prototype to see if there is tooling or jigging that needs to be done before going into commercial production.

Any opinions?

Search "dynacorn" on this site. It has been well discussed and already beaten to death. Unless you have a date that they will be sold or solid pricing info there is little that can be added that hasn't already be discussed before.

Been discussed here a number of times. A couple of our members have seen the prototype at SEMA. No one seems to know when or if they'll be available for purchase. Would be nice if they did eventually come out, but even more important if they'll come out at a reasonable price.

'When my Bronco is finished' is only a hypothetical statement.

Considering what sheetmetal repair could cost, 10k might not be all that bad.

I was thinking the same thing, the amount of time I spent straightening, replacing, and now worrying about rusty body panels, $10k doesn't sound bad at all.

We could only hope for $10K. Considering the mustang bodys go for $15K. bronco body parts kits go for $4K without shipping and you still need fenders grill, doors and tailgate. Add labor into that and your over $10K quick. I think the price will be around $15k but who knows we may get lucky.

I wonder what it means that "Ford will NOT license the reproduction body...." in their context?
Did they authorize/license the Mustang bodies?

Maybe without the licensing fees/hoops to jump through, they can actually meet the goal of under 10 grand for the price.
Assuming that is, that they aren't forced to change something so it doesn't look so much like a copy of a Ford product. Even if it doesn't say "Ford" anywhere.
We'll see about that I guess.

Always waiting. Will be interested to hear when they hit our shores.
Oh, and did you guys click on the adverts in the sidebar? $120k EB and a $23k '81 FS Bronco.
Beautiful restoration on the full-size, but it's hard to even get $2500 for one around here these days.
Maybe the provenance will do the trick.

FWIW,

I had conversations with two different people "inside the industry" at the recent Carlisle All-Ford Nationals that indicated that they did not think Dynacorn would EVER get a complete body to market, and one went so far as to say he was not sure that Dynacorn would even exist in a few more years. The other person I talked to later said he would not be surprised of that either.

Interesting. Financial issues? Other vendors taking their market share?

They did not give details, but I think ongoing quality issues has been a big one.

The many years these are overdue has likely also not been good financially since money was surely laid out, but has not been recouped yet.

I did meet another manufacturer who said they plan to tool up to make complete Bronco bodies as well. They had other shells and complete bodies on hand at the show for others models that they make now. They claim to make the majority of their parts in house, in the USA.

The two sample car bodies they had at the show looked pretty nice from everything I could tell.

Hopefully something of good quality and a reasonable price will finally hit the market in the next few years from one of them or maybe even someone else?

Good to hear. I would hate to see our supply of decent workable sheet metal dry up.

Even better if the stuff is made here.

To clarify a little. Yes the parts are stamped overseas. But the assambely of the parts into a complete body shell is actually done here in the states.

I have personally talked with them extensively over many years at SEMA.

In the article above it states that all the stamping and assembly work is slated to take place in Taiwan.
