1959 Corvette Resto Mod Rolling Chassis Project -show quality

1959 Corvette Rolling Chassis. All work thus far is to show quality standards with no expense spared.
This Project will cater to the builder of either extreme, a high performance reliable daily driver or a build/Sell project.
Corvette Resto Mods with this quality Chassis sell consistently between $125k to $200K - Vettes at Barret Jackson have recently sold for $250,000 (I'll be glad to send link)
Purchased corvette non- matching #'s (for the purist out there) drove for years with small block and original suspension. After a while, I simply couldn't handle that antiquated suspension and lack of performance.
I was important to maintain the authenticity of the original X frame but needed to be reinforced and modified to accept late model Corvette suspension.
The original frame was stripped down and taken to the renowned builder, Paul Newman Car Creations Inc. in Paso Robles, Ca. The cost of frame modifications as listed below exceeded $11,000.00
I will detail the work on the frame to this point to the best of my ability accompanied with multiple photos of the journey.
The frame conversion includes the following work/modifications;
Front:
New front Frame section adapts Late Model C4 corvette suspension cross member.
New Froward Cross member with Radiator / Fender support
New upper shock mounts
New LS Corvette engine mount brackets
New lower engine mount to front Sub frame brackets

Back:
New Sway bar brackets
New rear steer assembly
New upper shock mounts
New differential side mounts
New Stop bump brackets
New four bar forward frame mounts
New Cast Aluminum Torque arm and forward frame support
New Transmission mount cross member

Additional Modifications /components on frame
Large exhaust hole cut outs in cross-member for exhaust routing
3" Aluminum Drive line with yoke and u joints
BW 6 speed Transmission Bracket
Original style mount Battery Bracket
Steel hard brake line
Two new front Baer PBRF Calipers and C4 un-restored rear PBR calipers
Vented Cross drilled, slotted zinc washed 13" Baer Rotors
QA1 aluminum Adjustable shocks on 4 corners


Once Frame was modified it was sandblasted and powder coated.
The C4 suspension was meticulously taken apart and each component was hand sanded of all visible cast seams then blasted and powder coated
All suspension components received new Polyurethane bushings
Totally rebuilt Dana 36 rear end gears
New Composite adjustable front and rear springs
Corvette Z06 wheels as pictured on rolling chassis included.

Included but not installed on frame:
Tremec T-56 6 speed transmission
New Rear light assembly
New body cushion mounting Kit
New front Grille
Emergency Brake interface kit

Fiberglass Body remains intact as purchased mounted on wooden rolling frame. The body does not show any stress cracks. When purchased the car was recently painted with a daily driver finish. my plans was to repaint the body. the doors, hood, trunk all appear to be in good condition. A couple of nicks on Driver’s door and by gas lid. fiberglass fix on inside right left fender (photo attached)
Original parts/ components when vehicle was purchased Included are as follows:
Windshield and frame, Frame shows slight signs of corrosion as is typical and glass is in perfect condition, no chips/cracks
Left/ Right side windows/ frames no chips or cracks
Convertible Top; color, White and in nice condition. convertible top frame is intact with no rust. It has been stored for a while so rear window may need replacement.
Seats; the original seats where shot. They were stripped and OEM frame was taken to upholstery finished with top Grain black leather. Seats are new and have never been used since complete reconditioning/ re-upholstery.
Bumpers were triple- chromed to show quality new never installed. one rear corner bumper, (not sure which corner) is missing.
All original Un-restored gauges are included to the best of my recollection, they all worked fine.
Clean California title to vehicle ready to assign in my possession.
Any major components or parts not mentioned where sold or discarded as i had no plans for future use. Feel free to inquire though, as I may have missed something.
If you're looking for a quality built project this is the way to go. Poweplant of your choice, details and finish of your choice. The headache of getting it to this stage is done at a substantial discount.
I have invested substantially more than asking. I'm not desperate to sell nor do I have to sell. I simply have other projects and this one needs new home to make room in my garage for other toys.
Please don't send me silly offers as they will be politely ignored. if you Bid, Please have money in bank or under mattress ready pay and if you require wife's permission, please obtain prior to bidding.
Feel free to ask any questions I may not have addressed.
