C36 PROJECT, codenamed "The Hammer"
The plan for this new C36 project is to essentially take a '68 Corvette Convertible body, cut it through the middle, customise and modify it to suit and mount it on a standard C6 Z06 platform.
There will be 4 cars built, and all of these bodies will be made in Carbon Fibre from the ensuing molds we will take off the modified 'master' body once it is sculptured, and shaped to suit.
The body design will reflect both features of the C3 and the C6Z06. It will be built in a speedster theme with 'bullits' built behind both seats.
The front clip will be a fresh approach to a tilt front end, and will operate using linear actuators.
Original flip up headlights will be utilised thou modifed with modern HID lamps with restricted opening. Again, these will be now powered by linear actuators.
The interior will reflect an upspec C6 dash utilising leather and design cues to suit the project. Custom made door panels with extensive use of carbon fibre will adorn the cockpit appointments.
The chassis, motor, suspension, drivetrain, brakes and wheels, will be all standard C6 Z06, thou the 427 engine will be subject to a cosmetic upgrade and mild performance modifications.
We'll post pics, and detail build throughout the journey, you are welcome to follow this.
We hopes this helps and inspires other to pursue their dream, and would be happy to field any questions out there.
