Welcome to the fifth of six total installments chronicling the transformation of our old "carny" Corvette into the ultimate C2 Vette Rod. Last month, the crew at Corvette Restoration AZ installed the 393 stroker motor, five-speed transmission, and HD radiator/fan assembly. In this issue, we will install our chassis, suspension, brakes, and rearend. The final element of our build will be covered next month, which will detail all other components of the interior and exterior, trim, stereo install, final wrapup, and test drive/shake down. Let's jump into the build.
