My first ratrod project WIP
Posted by Ranchn62 on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 1:48 AM

Okay, so those of you who are Corvette purists.... Look away.

I'm taking the front fenders off, adding a frame extension, and useing a Pete N Jake style front suspension. I've already moved the gills from the front fenders, and moved them onto the doors. Still have contouring to do...

'67 'Vette ratrod

Alright, finally someone with the gonads to mutilate a Corvette.  Should be an interesting build.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

I was thinking about that, LOL. Not sure what I'm going to do for paint.... Maybe just primer.

You really want to "cheese off" the Vet fans????

Put a VW engine in the trunk. Nothing but a spare tire under the hood.

Dont worry about the thumb print.... paint it rust and call it battle damage

Could also put in a corvair engine in the rear, be the opposite of what corvair owners usually do

I like your idea's... But this will have a V8 with cross fire Carbs. From the '67 kit... 

But the rest?   No fenders, '32 style front suspension, Have to pick out some sort of grill.... Should be fun.

hachirokami.... That photo's bitchin'!
