There are two types of people in this world. Type number one wants things to be kept stock. Each and every bolt will remain an OEM part, so long as they own the vehicle. Type number two is looking to maximize performance. They’re the type of person who thinks life is too short to stay stock.
What we have here is a complete transformation for a C1 Corvette. Morrison Enterprises has developed a GT sport chassis for the C1 Corvette using an AME Sport IFS front suspension with a Wilwood spindle.
Morrison says it’s as simple as unbolting the stock chassis from your 1953-1962 Corvette, rolling the old assembly away, and replacing it with their design. It also makes for the perfect time to upgrade a transmission and swap in LS power. Though, again, this brings us back to the stock versus modified argument.
Analysis by the company shows the new setup to be on par with the original GT setup, which utilized components from the C6 Corvette, and the latest design allows for wheels larger than 15-inches.
So, where do you fall? Modern performance, or, does the original engineering mean more to you? Wherever you fall, Morrison does make a compelling option. Check out more information on the setup here.
