In keeping with what Arrowhead just said, I was amazed at the sheer number of outfits putting out bodies but even more amazed at the number of them that are not, uh, er, my cup of tea.

I've been searched high and low for a "kit" body for a 61-62 vette and even in this huge list...could not find one. (There are a couple outfits that will build you a complete car, but I can't find just the body). It surprises me that many less than spectacular bodies are being produced and sold while a classic like the early 60's vette can not be found.

Might have to settle for the earlier 56-57 style for my next project. At least it's available.

Which brings up a question. Do auto companies, like Ford or GM, have any "rights" over a body style once they manufacture it or can these glassing outfits steal the design and reproduce the body without any repercussions?
