Default Body and frame

Is there anyway to pull the body off the frame on a C4 similar to how it is done on the C3s?

Thanks,

Dave

it's not similar to a c3. the bodyshell/frame are somewhat of an integrated assembly. i don't think its possible to do a "true" body off restoration on a c4. the body shell/frame assembly would most likely be the basic component on a full c4 restoration.

First there was the corvette based nomad wagon. For a delivery vehicle that hauls we see the beginings of the Covette Camino.
