They are made by Dynacorn Classic Bodies Inc.  You can save yourself some cash by buying directly from Dynacorn...

Vette, they're a great addition to our beloved Camaros, but keep in mind they're repros with all the bugs that go with them. I recently read a magazine article in which the writer followed a "new" '67 Dynacorn Camaro body from shell to rolling chassis, and even the manufacturer's professional bodymen had problems making the sheetmetal all work together! I'm not knocking them at all---I think the repro bodies are wonderful--but the magazine ads and the stories gloss over all the ugly headaches involved with such an ambitious project. They don't reveal in detail the flaws and problems a Joe 6-Pack would encounter. They are NOT the Fisher bodies that were imperfect even from GM--they're repros. In a lot of ways, repro continues to be a dirty name compared to OEM.

Vette,

Here is another option if you are considering Dynacorn, Mike rebuilds an actual car that already has a clear and valid title that is every bit as good if not better http://www.mikescustomcars.com/69bodies.htm#

You might find this thread from back in July / Aug 2006 interesting:

http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=925.0

If you scroll far enough down the second page in the thread you will see a '67 Dynacorn body Camaro built in 2006.

I agree .. I will come right out and say Mike's are better because they are . Problem is that he has huge business and you will not be able to get a chassis from him for at least a year
