1962 Chevrolet Corvette
This started as a real 1962 Corvette from California it was taken off its original chassis and fitted with a Pro built all tube custom made chassis using Chassis Engineering components. The front suspension has a street strut front end and the rear has a coil over fully adjustable four link fab 9’’which has been narrowed with strange street axles to allow for the wider rear rims and tires. You can run up to a 345-30-20 on a 12’’ rim. this is not like Most of the conversions that you see having flat narrow wheels on the rear. A lot of time and money was put into this supper car to make it a one of a kind custom to be driven on the street as well.
The body has multiple modifications made to it so it sets it apart from the rest you will not see another like it. It has been blocked sanded and gaps fitted in two part epoxy primer. The doors have bear claw latches the hood and trunk have been hung but no latches. Please look at the pics there is just too much to list built as a hard top in mind there is no soft top. With a little work you can make it a roaster or lift off top. It’s powered by a 502/502 alum head chevy crate motor with a cross member for a 6 spd L-80E trans this tunnel is big enough to use any other trans you want The headers are custom made and complete with 3’’ borla exhaust which will exit thru the bottom of the valance panel.
This caralso comes with a new back window new chrome grill new front bumpers all other bumpers and trim need to be done. New 4 wheel wilwood polished disk brakes new polish strange center section and a billet specialties polished tilt steering column. The steering shaft and joints are installed to a manual rack. If needed this also can be changed to a power rack. I will show you in a pic of the parts mention and then some included.
The tires and wheels are for fitment only you will need to buy new wheels. All are included.
These are the parts I do not have: wiring for the car no door handles no interior panels no brake or gas lines. The fuel cell is installed and complete. What you see in the pics is what you will get .As you can see some parts and metal work are needed to complete. But all hard work is done. All interior trunk wheel well including dash all hand made out of metal this was done for a strong go fast car…
This car comes with a California vin tag and yes a clear Illinois title.
