The chassis is from a 1964 example Corvette: 327 engine, Muncie M20 manual transmission. It’s located down in South Carolina if you want to go and have a gander. A new Edelbrock carb, original headers and side exhaust outlets, and the radiator and associated parts round out some of the highlights. The seller says he would be more than happy to start up the motor for interested customers, and that he has video of the complete car running and driving – before he removed the body to use in another restoration.
Considering the parts list and their level of preservation, this seems like a deal for anyone in want of an original Corvette Stingray chassis and drivetrain. Second-generation Corvette bodies aren’t exactly abundant in good nick, but aren’t ludicrously expensive, either. This rolling chassis could be the perfect underpinning for an affordable, classic weekend cruiser.
But really, the propeller-hub wheels are nearly cool enough in and of themselves to warrant the purchase price.
