    Chassis options

    My front and rear clamshells were racing spares for P1027 (and were vintage raced on the car). While just a copy of the originals from 1027, I really don't want to modify them to fit a chassis. I'll modify the chassis to fit them. But options for a chassis seem pretty limited.

    Chassis options

    I posted before about the body I have, it's very close to original specs. I had planned on building a chassis from scratch but time has not been on my side. I did a little research and it looks like Chris Arden with Arden Cars/Active power will sell just a chassis, as will the following...

    Alans Scratch build

    I'm working on building a GT40 as a gift to my father in law and it's on a tight budget, very tight. I too have Chris' chassis plans. I had not considered using corvette rims or aftermarket rims for corvette. What did you use, are these from a standard C5 or Z06?

    Ferrari Powered GT40

    Troy can you share a little info on your rim and tire choice? I see early pics with knock offs then late with MOMO lug rims. I'm in early stages of planning a somewhat conventional build that I plan to use Corvette C6 arms and uprights and have not decided on rim and wheels yet. Thanks and...
