“THE EVOLUTION” of the C2/C7 Conversion Chassis

At first, we considered using C5 Suspension because of the multitude of used parts available. But then, we realized that we would be Two Generations old with a “New Product”. That is why we chose to build the “New Chassis” with 2017 – C7 Suspension. After much research, we were able to gather all of the Part Numbers to order a complete front and rear set of C7 Suspension.

We were able to purchase another set of used suspension from VetteWrecks out of a Fire/Salvage 2015 Corvette, to do our initial chassis geometry. Chuck Ryan also lent us a front “cut-off” (see pictures) from a flood/salvage, so that we could set up exact suspension pick-up points on the chassis.

After building the New Perimeter C2/C7 Chassis, the L/S motor mounts are tacked in place along with the lower suspension plate. This will ensure proper motor placement and clearance with the new suspension. The removable center cross-member and 3rd cross-member are installed to maintain Chassis rigidity.

The next thing to do was to setup a full-width jig. This will allow us to keep the exact GM Geometry when we narrow the tread width to that of a 63-67 C2 Corvette. Once this is accomplished, we can align the two jigs to the correct width. We can then build a reverse jig, that will allow us to relate the suspension mounting points to the chassis.

This process will be repeated with the rear suspension, with the addition of the differential engineering. We are using a C5 Differential (instead of the Viper C4 Differential) to maintain the character of the “Newer Generations”. This also allows us more tire width and greater flex ability in the placement of the rear. It also allows the use of inner and outer CV Joints, as the unit was designed.
