    Re: Body kit for c4 vett

    friend of mine purchased one of my diablo roadster bodies and cut it up and grafted pieces onto a late model vette ...he now has over $70,000 into it .. over 10k in paint alone he plans on showing it at performance world car show ...with ideas of possibly marketing it ..we have spoke at length about it from a business point of view it makes allot more sense with the sheer numbers of corvettes built and the numbers of them that are still on the road compared with the normal cars and fiero's ...just a vastly bigger market and turn around time for a build .... it will all depend if people like his car ...john

    I was thinking about something like that or a wide body kit. How hard do you think it would be to cut one up and make it work. I just think the fiero thing is getting old.I have three fiero sitting in my garage two for replica kits and one that is like new with 38,000 miles on her.They are so hard to find here in Pa.Im willing to spend the cash to make this work and hope to have a market for it also.

    Re: Body kit for c4 vett

    he has about 1 year into it now weekends only .. but he has paid one of the top paint and body guys to get it straight on top of that ...custom stuff like this isn't nesseccarily hard to do but it take allot of time the whole thing that appealed to me was the build time ..weeks instead of months ..he won't share any pics yet ..his sits on a coupe for the time being I tried to get him to cut the roof off..and I am sure it will be easy to fit on a convertible too ... takes a bit of courage at the start too considering he started with a $20,000 car and took a saw to it ...lol...john

    This finished McBurnie Ferrari Daytona sold today on eBay for only $12,700!!!

    That is less than McBurnie sold the kits for back in the 80's. They usually sell for 2 to 3 times that!



    Please let me know if you find any other Vette-based kits. Thanks!

    Re: Body kit for c4 vett

    Thanks for the info.Well from what I can see there are no lambo style kits out there so I think I may try to go with the lambo look,I have a nice vett that im going to cut up.Its going to be hard but I think I can get it to work.I may try this with the countach body im up in the air.Give me some input guys

    Re: Body kit for c4 vett

    If you really want to cut up that Vette and build from scratch, you can get a set of lambo chassis plans for the do it yourselfer, that won't break the bank. Then you can adapt it to use the Vette suspension and running gear. You might even be able to cram the Vette engine and transaxle into the rear of a Lambo so you won't need to get a Porsche transaxle. I don't know, but these guys will.

    Re: Body kit for c4 vett

    Vettes make great donor cars, and I'm sure there will be many more kits based on Vettes soon - both front and mid-engine cars.
