  • Countach Frame Self build.

    Looking to build my own frame. I'm a fabricator and Electrician I should be able to handle that. Only interested in building the correct frame. Not spending $100,000 on a frame when they can be built with time and effort.

    Any one with plans for have built one able to provide any info or make this process easier would be nice.

        I can make the process easier. A bare aluminum composite monocoque Countach frame is $8,000.

          Does it look like the original frame or what. I'm still building a countach replica, we have talked

              No, it is aluminum composite monocoque rather than tubeframe. It has the same wheelbase, track, and other dimensions but uses modern suspension technology rater than the original design, and a fringe benefit of this is several more inches of leg room. It is also designed for a longitudinal engine with a transaxle rather than the unobtainable front mounted v-drive gearbox.

                  Did the thread resolve the frame dilemma?

                  I will still be looking around if anyone has any ideas to conclude a process of building a frame.

                              I think that you would like the chassis, I have seen Charlies work, you'd like what you see AND I have not heard of any bad deals with him, and believe me that IS very important... oh and lets not forget the BBQ LOL
