Posted 07/04/2019
This Corvette Stingray restomod that has a rust-free frame, 4 wheel independent
suspension, factory 4 wheel power disc brakes, and a LT-1 350 with a Tremec T56 6 speed?

This is a great project for someone who has the time to finish it. We simply
don't. Too busy with work and so after 4 years of ownership and fun, we need
to pass this one along to someone with the time!

This steel bumper Corvette was a 4 speed, A/C equipped car from the factory
and has an LT1 hood. Since it did not have a motor or transmission when we
bought it (no numbers to match here) we decided to build a restomod using a
LT-1 350 and a T56 transmission out of our 1994 Camaro SS.

The original frame under the Vette was rusted so we replaced it with a rust free
77 rolling frame that had most everything except an engine and transmission.
Upper parts of the frame were coated with POR15 before the body was attached,
the bottom to be finished later after suspension upgrades.

In terms of the Vette body, the corners of the window frame are rusted. Spot
welds need to be cut out, rusted parts removed, and new corners welded in
(new corners to weld in are included with the car).

We cut out and welded in new steel in the areas where the mounting holes on
the bottom of the birdcage were rusted. There are also 2 one inch holes on the
bottom of the uprights that need to be cut out and replaced. The rest of the
birdcage looks intact.

There is some minor body work to be done before paint, and there was no signs
of damage to the shell or frame from a previous accident/collision. Just an old
faded red Corvette that needed some new color (first coat of polyester primer
was being applied as we worked the car).

This was a complete car minus engine and transmission before we started the
build. All parts are with the car. Has the original red bucket seats, red center
console, dash, but many of the red vinyl trim pieces are old and faded/cracked,
and it will need new door panels. We were going to install a black interior.
Needs a new windshield but the door glass is original Astro glass.

The LT-1 350 is bolted in but the ignition needs to be wired. The complete wiring
harness and computer from the Camaro are included. Crossmember to mount
the T56 6 speed manual transmission needs to be modified or replaced it is
removable on a 1977 frame. The original 71 crossmember was welded in.

In addition to the parts removed from the car, extras and new parts that go
with the car include:

New Black Carpet and Padding, new exterior door handles, and a new EFI Fuel Tank from Ecklers

New replacement window frame corners

New Heavy Duty Differential Cover (housing on car has that typical broken ear)

Original 4 speed differential and half shafts from rusted 71 frame

Extra rear hubs/discs from the rusted 71 frame

Title is clear and in my name. VIN tag on the windshield post is intact.
No issues there.
