It has a tube chassis, fiberglass body with suicide doors. Should weigh about 2400 lbs.
I bought the engine (LS3), tranny (4L65e), ECU’s and wiring harness direct from GM. They have a program called Connect and Cruise that had a $500 discount and free delivery so I jumped at it. I wanted a 6 speed but my left knee is so so. My other car has a 6 speed.
The rear has a new Ford IRS 3.55 LSD diff. Koni coilovers in all 4 corners as well as disc brakes on all 4 wheels. Tires are Toyo Proxies T1 Sports, 235 x 45 x 17 front, rears are 295 x 35 x 18 mounted on American Racing wheels.
Electric power steering, heat and AC. BBK ceramic coated headers, power windows, heated seats, door poppers, Ididit (sp?) tilt steering. Line lock and 4 speaker GPS/stereo.
The paint is PPG Deltron 2019 Corvette Racing Yellow.
Everything is new, no used parts.
I just need to finish painting it and install the front and rear windows.

Very nice build.... :goodjob: ..... personally no more manuals for me. I do several parades a year along with shows and cruise-ins. Just don't have the leg for it anymore...
