Sure you can build a car.

Assuming I have the spare $$$$$, I could build a brand new 1969 Camaro.  With 
out ever going to GM.

Assuming you have the know how and skills, your biggest problem might be 
deciding which vendor your money will go to for various parts.

Plenty of other US cars could be built in a similar fashion, but the Chevrolet 
is probably one of the more popular ones.

Some also mentioned VW's.  Another good canidate.
