Street Shop Inc. continues my C6 Chassis build and was kind enough to send me some additional pictures today for my records of my RestoMod / VetteRod project. I am sharing them on the forums. Are there any other views or pictures I should ask for?? Let me know and I will request it of the shop to provide if at all possible.
Also – please do not be shy to provide your feedback or questions if anyone has any….


Front cradle mounts are made and welded into place








Body mounts are formed; captured nuts are welded in and installed on frame / chassis










Front mounts are made for the m50 (Rear End) and installed

Default C2 Corvette Street Shop Chassis Build Continues

My Custom C6 Chassis build for my 1964 C2 Corvette continues to be constructed by the folks at STREET SHOP INC
I am loving how beefy the parts are as well as how amazing the welding looks!



Upper a-arm mounts are made, 3/8 thick and drill and tapped. Prepped for welding - Placed in a jig and welded up. Gussets are added along with front shock mounts. On the inside gussets are added across from the shock.









Engine cradle is boxed in and will be finished when the bottom is welded.

Here are a few additional pictures of my C6 chassis build for my C2 RestoMod from Street Shop. It is coming together nicely....


Transmission cross member being constructed







Rear clip is on - along with rear body mounts



Transmission cross member is installed


All that is left to do is the rear shock mounts and it comes off the jig, and finish the underside before it goes off to powder coat.

Here is my C6 Street Shop Chassis after it has been removed from the jig. I can see that more gussets, the side pipe / brake line tabs are now installed as well as the front sway bar mounts. At this point, the chassis fabrication is completed. Bolts will be placed in anything on the frame that has threads in preparation for powder coating in the next week or so.
What’s next?
I have contracted Street Shop to build the complete rolling chassis as many of you have seen the extensive list of parts at the beginning of the thread. All the parts have been ordered a few weeks ago so I will assume that many have already arrived or will be arriving while the chassis is off to powder coat so that when it returns to the shop, the assembly process will begin.

Default Street Shop C6 Chassis back from Powder Coat

The chassis has returned from the Powder Coater and is being prepared now for the installation of all those goodies I ordered for this build. The following pictures show my Street Shop Inc C6 chassis on the table with some of the parts being laid out in preparation for assembly. The rear end has arrived as well and if you pay attention, in one of the photographs you will see a crate engine (not sure if its mine or not but it will be similar).







I went with the 3.55 gear ratio as an all-around good gear.

This is the fun part of watching this build come together.
The Front Stainless Lines are installed as well as the front suspension
The Rear end installation is underway and almost complete
Street Shop Inc is waiting on a few small parts from GM to finish the rear and for brackets to get back from plating so the front of the engine can be finished as well.

My understanding is that yes - Street Shop does modify the rear so that it fits into this application.
