Really dumb question, I know, but with all the restoration/repro parts out there, it just got me thinking.

You can buy all new sheet metal, seats, liners, moldings, axles, springs, brakes, undercarriage, engines, mounts, electrical systems/harnesses, etc.

So, in theory, could you simply order a bunch of repro parts and build a first generation camaro clone?

I think you would at least need the shell. Although you can get custom subframes, not sure about frame rails.

Anyone else???

Didn't Classic Industries do that a few years back? I think they had the basic shell of a 69 convertible. Can you say EXPENSIVE?
