Will this be a new addition to the current lineup? Will you still be continuing production of the current 68 Camaro as well? I think I will be getting this new body for the upcoming season.

Yes, and it will also have an optional front grill insert for the different style front grill.

I showed it to a co-worker, and he wants to get a chassis simply because of this shell. Awesome.

That's my initial reaction to them also...but....the alternative (to get the correct undercuts) is the $$$ sliding mold tool which would make our bodies $40+...so...
