English term or phrase: outside coach builders
"making arrengments with...", they're talking about Edsel Ford and when he started to excersise his design ideas on the Lincoln.
Carlos
Spanish translation:fabricantes independientes de carrocerías
Explanation:
Como se ve, "making arrangements with outside coach builders" denota acuerdos de Edsel Ford con compañías fabricantes independientes para que le diseñaran una carrocería que eventualmente su compañía pudiera elegir para su nuevo modelo "Lincoln". Debe tenerse en cuenta que los grandes fabricantes de autos sub-contratan los componentes a compañías subsidiarias independientes.
(ej: Fisher fabrica las carrocerías para General Motors)

constructores exteriores del coche


Explanation:
'outside coach builders' as in 'those who build outer part of coaches' should be 'constructores exteriores del coche'.

Making arrangements with outside coach builders would be 'tomando medidas con los constructores exteriores del coche'

On the other hand, if by 'outside', the meaning was 'foreign' as in someone who is from outside the country, then it could be 'constructores no nativos del coche'.

But as I understand from your sentence, you refer to 'outside' as 'outer/exterior part'.

IVASCO is correct


Explanation:
I think the term "outside" kinda threw everybody but clearly he was looking for someone on the outside who could and would build according to his plans. Hope this helps! Suerte!
