Purchased in Hawaii in 2009, our split window coupe has a 327 fuel injected engine and the very rare Heater Delete option. Our Corvette was restored over a 4 year period using original 1963 components. Modifications were limited to those popular in the late 1960's. Our vision... Period Correct/Era Modified.

C2 Frame Repairs
This is a video. Be sure to push the triangle to play.
They say a quality restoration uses a rotisserie. I think this meets the intent.
The frame is surprisingly light. Double click the picture to see a close-up of the underside hole. Between this hole and the two corresponding holes that Ty fixed yesterday I am beginning to wonder if someone didn't secure a previous transmission with a U-bolt. That would be pretty bizarre if they did.
Ty cut, beveled, welded and ground this piece until it was perfect... ..
