Default NEW C4 Frame!

Hey guys,
I know most of you have seen this before, but I thought there might be some new folks who would be interested.



A very unique and (arguably) rare Corvette part....
This is a BRAND NEW C4 frame. This frame was used to mock up body parts. It NEVER went down the assembly line! Excellent condition, NO rust!! Perfect for a race car build or save for a future restoration. You will not find a cleaner frame for this generation Corvette! May possibly be one of only 3 know in existence.
Delivery available for expenses.
$500

LOL, well....I guess maybe it has significance.

I bought this from another forum member with thoughts of building
a pro-street C4 or just to keep for "some day", but I need the storage
space more than the frame right now.
Someday guys will be wishing they had a frame this nice to start with!
That may be a few years out, but eventually our C4's will be restoration candidates.

You could "donate" it to the museum until you r ready to use it? This is a win win! you get your space back and may not have to pay to store it!

My guess is that since the factory parted with it and the museum didn't grab it then, they might not be willing to "store" it for me now.
But who knows, that was a few years ago.

I don't have the actual weight, but it takes 3 guys to carry it.
You can lift the front of the frame fairly easily, but it takes two people to lift the back.
If I had to guess, I'd say around 3-400 lbs.

Wish I had a place to put it. I've got all kinds of ideas bouncing through my head of what could be done with it...with more money and time than I've currently got. :P

Hey Daniel! That looks familiar! LOL

I was tempted to buy both of them from Brett. What plans do you have for yours?
