Does anyone in the US have a C2 corvette like this?

I purchased this C2 roadster about 3 years ago. I owned a 65 about 50 years ago and this was so unique I couldn't turn it down. The family of the fellow who built it did contact me with a little info about their dad who built it.

So my question: has anyone in the U.S. built another one like it??

65 C2 with only about 55k miles. Flared fenders, Big block hood, 57 Chrysler 392 engine with dual Carter AFB's, Chrysler 4 spd trans ( I've replace this with a TREMEC 5 spd), Chrysler 8.75" solid rearend with stock drum brakes, (I've replaced the brakes with after market disc's and added a 4 link suspension). I also added a small rear ducktail during repaint and 17" wheels.

Got a contact from a friend yesterday who has worked on old hotrod cars all his life and has a great memory of them.
Talked to him last night and he agreed that this is probably a one of a kind. I do have the history of the installation of the Chrysler running gear. The fellow that did it all's daughter and son contacted me with some information and a few pictures. Possibly could be worth an increased value, but I'll be giving my old cars to my kids and grandkids so the value is not what I'm interested in.
