    someone is producing STEEL 67-69 Camaro shells. Hot Rod had an article about them a few months back, might want to look into that. perhaps www.hotrod.com would help you out?

    Dynacorn is who is selling them but you have to buy from one of their dealers. I think it is a division of Dynacorn called dii or Classic Bodies Inc.

    I'd like to see how well these are actually built. I'm sure everybody's aware of the differences between repro parts and nos parts.

    I have been doing some digging into on parts that actually fit correctly and it seems that Dynacorn is the cream of the crop and better than the wore out factory stampings that were sold through the GM parts departments.
    There are numerous cheap repro parts on the market but I am betting that Dynacorn is as good as it has ever been offered.

    The only one I'd seen so far was their '69 Camaro convertible all steel body. Every bit as nice as a factory one.....and priced accordingly.

    I'd heard an unsubstantiated report that a bare shell was around $15,000. No front clip, no doors, no trunklid..... still, with what it might cost to acquire a real '69 vert, strip it and remove ALL traces of rust and damage, you might be better off starting with one of these repros... especially if you aren't a collector and want to "mod" it substantially..... less expensive, and less guilt! :laugh:

    I've seen a bare shell for a '69 Camaro hardtop but of course you don't know how well parts fit until you start puttin them on. :D

    Personally I think 15k is a steal (no pun intended) for a body like that if it's built correctly. Complete, rust free, and already torn down so you don't have to strip it in the first place. I know exactly where the hot rod is that contains the article you are talking about, but I'm at school at it's two hours away. :doah:

    According to DII's web site the conv. body shell is just over ten thousand dollars plus a crating fee - and of course shipping is extra. That price keeps the average working man in the game and gives hope for having a VERY nice car if desired.
    Other popular bodies are to follow in years to come , let's hope the quality remains the focal point.

    I've heard that GM was all over these companies for license fees, so that probably accounts for a portion of the price. There was even speculation that GM wasn't going to let them be sold when they first came out.

    I like the idea of buying a new body.. It would have saved me a lot of hassle in building mine. It's a great time & money saver for those of us who can't weld.

    I saw a buildup of one of there bodies. Every piece that makes up the body is stamped and authorized by GM so that they could sell it as a Camaro. All parts are offered as authintic original fitment. Car looked perfect when done. All body lines were right on with no modification other than adjustments.
