Default Collier or SRIII Frame wanted - New C3 Frame setup for C4 or C5 suspension

I'm looking for an aftermarket frame for my '68 427/4 speed that uses C4 or C5 suspension parts. Like the Collier or SRIII frames. If anyone has one they want to get rid of please e-mail me at [email protected]

I'm still looking for one of these. I guess its good news that they're hard to find. Apparently they are well liked.

Also If anyone has a complete non matching '68 with a bad frame/suspension. Let me know I'd trade for some cash with mine. Seems like a shame to tear my perfectly good car apart. (or I'll just sell the frame and suspension afterwards)

Well I may be home from Iraq for the Fall carlisle show. I guess I'll see SRIII and/or Collier up there and order one up.

Default Restomod frames

There is a guy on utube, Corvette Joe Alaska. He has done 2 or 3 of the SRIII restomods and swears by them. He has a bunch of videos posted. I think they are around $6k bare, about $16K for a rolling chassis? Don't quote me on the prices. It kind of depends on what set up you want too. Let us know what you decide on. Good luck!

I do not have an SRIII frame BUT they have done plenty of other work for me, all top notch.

Mike, the owner, keeps the shop the way you would like to see a place that engineers projects from start to finish. On top of that he is a really nice guy.

Tell him Frank (with the black corvette) sent you.

This is the only one I ever saw where the person gave up their SRIII project. http://www.corvetteinternational.com...ad.php?t=44554 wouldn't hurt to reach out and ask him if it's still sitting in his garage 2 years later. Never removed the post.

Here's another one trooper! I'd love to do something like this . . . . Price not too bad.

Stay safe and keep your head down until you rotate back. All the way and then some!
