I think you are out of luck there.....just about zero customer demand in the market for this for any vendor to think they'll make any profit on providing such a "kit"....you might be the only one in the country at this date and time looking for said "kit".

If you like the look of the '67-68 style better, just buy a '67-68 Car rather than spend a bunch of time trying to figure out how to cobble one up onto a '69 body.

The question you are asking is just like asking for a '71 Mustang nose to fit a '64....or a '70 Corvette nose to fit a '63.....both of which would also look ridiculous.

Are you good at body work?? If so, approach it like a 1950's lead sled Custom where anything is possible with enough time, cutting, welding, leading hammering mud shaping and sanding to build your own vision.....You can be the next Ed Roth("RatFink").......that's the only way your going to achieve this....or pay the $$$ to have a shop do it for you.
