The C5/C6 chassis/frame I ordered from Street Shop for my 1964 Roadster has started construction and I will be following its assembly to completion (rolling chassis). As you can see from the pictures below, the frame rails have arrived.
When frame rails arrive they are put in a bin to allow the excess oil drain out. While they drain, Street Shop is working on the small parts. Cross members are cut prepped for welding and then degreased. All small parts are machined, cleaned, assembled in a jig and welded up.

Ok I'm subscribed. 64 is a good starting point. All the style of the c2 with underwhelming drivetrain and brakes. Sounds like you are fixing that.

Are you building the chassis as a kit or is the shop?

I should have been more clear - STREET SHOP INC is building the chassis for me. They were nice enough to agree to send me photographs throughout the build process so that I could have complete documentation/history for my project.
Will post more as I receive additional pictures.

While Street Shop Inc. is busy assembling my C5/C6 chassis, I need to take the 1964 Corvette Roadster apart in order to get the body off the original frame. The Roadster is a driver with a small block 350 - so to me, it is a good candidate for the RestoMod.

At my pace, the new chassis will be ready before I am !!
Here are some pictures of the 64 -

Nice project. That frame will definitely be stout.

The Corvette C6 Chassis for my 1964 Corvette C2 is nearing completion and Street Shop has asked to display it at the upcoming 2012 Carlisle Corvette show!!! So for those of you who are planning on going anyway, stop by their display booth to see the chassis in person you will see it before I do!!!
The following series of build pictures shows more of the details of the chassis build:


In the spirit of sticking with all (or as much) Corvette C5/C6 parts as possible, I decided to use the C5/6 Disk Brake set-up, including the red powder-coated front and rear calipers. Yes, I even decided to use the Corvette inscribed front calipers.



Here are close up pictures of the front and rear suspension. Super clean and super modern!! Take a look at the A-arms and coil-overs!





Here are a couple of wide shots of the chassis as it sits now. Once the plating is completed, the engine accessories will be installed and of course lowered onto the frame along with the mated transmission. The Stainless gas tank will need to be installed along with the drive shaft from what I can see from the pictures.

While the chassis is being completed – more pictures to come when the engine and transmission are installed along with the additional items to complete the rolling chassis – I have turned to making progress on the Corvette itself. The chassis is the sexy part of this amazing transformation but the task remains to restore the driver quality Corvette so that it is worthy of this new Street Shop C6 chassis.
I have made the following progress:
1. The bumpers and side window chrome have been removed, disassembled and now are at the chrome shop getting the show quality treatment. Below is a picture of the side window assemblies as delivered to the chrome facility; the side window regulators literally disintegrated in my hands so new ones will have to be purchased.


2. The bumper brackets have all been removed from the old frame and are at the power coaters now.


3. The following pictures show the Corvette being loaded onto the carrier on its way to the soda blasters to remove the old white paint job from the 1990’s.





Two days later, here is the body back from the soda blasters with virtually no paint. Now we can assess what the body will need to become pristine once more. We noticed some “work” done in the driver rear end and rear right passenger quarter.
