Almost anybody selling full floors is selling the Dynacorn one.
I just did a patch on the front of a 68 coupe with an American Designer patch. It came with the car, and being a Dynacorn dealer myself, I was too cheap to buy a Dynacorn piece when I already had a patch on hand.
Suffice it to say I wasn't impressed. The American designer piece has the 90 degree lip against the rocker in the wrong direction (down versus up), and the hole for the drain plug that gets attached with 2 screws was not big enough for the original drain plug to back in. Even with a partial floor patch, I had to do quite a bit of hammering to make it fit.
I can't speak in comparison to the dynacorn part because I have not worked with that exact piece, but I have to say I was not impressed with the American Designer piece.
Also, when I was doing this repair, I noticed that the orignal floor pan, where it meets with the firewall and the lower tunnel brace, fits HORRIBLY. Again, this is original steel, and there is at least a 1/2 gap in places between the floor and the transmission tunnel brace on the bottom, and places where there are easily a 1/4 to 3/8" gaps between the floor and firewall/toeboard on the top.
