Default Kit car, body, lotus, something that uses C4 running gear

So.. I'm parting a '92.

Thinking of vette kart or some open roadster project.

What uses C4 front/rear suspension, etc ?

Thinking like Lotus 7, dune buggy, 20s/30s ford, etc Fibreglass dash with autometer gauges, no carpet.

Personal choice would be a '32 with some C4 running gear.

Why not use the suspension to build a sleeper Jeep/Scout/Bronco?

Last week at a gas station I talked to a guy with a 55 Ford truck, LS powered with C4 suspension. It looked really nice, stock looking body but low to the ground.
