First, I REALLY appreciate the education y'all are patiently giving me!  

Second, will this kit (link below) give the correct front end (suspension/trunk/etc)?

Everything in that except the windshield, tail lights and the engine cover would be accurate to what you are trying to match

Wow...I've already started the '68, was going to use the chassis, rear suspension, engine, interior, windscreen, and then fit different front end....should I totally abort that and rely far more on the Aoshima?

I think the biggest problem for you using that one would be the windshield. The tail lights you could just get from the 68 and the engine vent difference you could correct

Well, the Aoshima just arrived, total three kits to make one <_<

The Aoshima's really basic in the chassis and engine; anyone ever tried fitting the Revell 68 chassis to the Aoshima's body? 

EDIT: Disregard....seems most of the chassis actually fits really well!  But will need a bunch of cutting and replacing stuff for the fender skirts.  This will be complicated, but very promising....
