Each Corvette project is a challenge. With many Vette projects, that involves a car that's complete, or at least intact. When John Kundrat started on this project, he had a far bigger challenge on his hands, one that took him about four-and-a-half years to complete. "It was a complete car that had been stored about 7-8 years and not run for a long time," recalls John. "It had a rotted frame."

Also in a less-than-solid condition: The car's body, and its history. "Actually it was two cars that were cut in half and spliced together, back in the late '60s," he notes. "The front originally was a Tuxedo Black '64 Fuel Injected car, and the back was a '66."

Understandably, that OEM frame that the '64 had-original or otherwise-had to go. John found a more than worthy replacement for it, as well as for the powertrain and suspension that came with the car. "It has an SRIII chassis, C5 front suspension and C4 rear, and coilovers all around," he says. "It has an LS1 with Dart heads, a Comp Cam, LS6 intake, all-stainless exhaust and headers-I made all the exhaust-and a Tremec 6-speed." Or, as John sums it up, "It's basically a C6 inside C2 skin."
