No, not by itself. You will need the Z06 or GS fenders for it to work. The front bumper is to wide to fit the base car. There are aftermarket vendors that sell a Z06/GS looking replica bumper that will fit a base car. Ecklers Corvette sells one. Good luck...

No, a ZO6 is a wide bodied car and it won't fit a narrow bodied car.

I think RPI makes one that will fit a base model.

Are you saying that if I was crazy enough to go out and buy OEM 4- ZO6 fenders/panels, bumper, grill and hood, that it wouldn't fit and bolt onto a base car? Just curious.

Which bumper?

The rear bumper covers are the same. The fronts covers are wider, as has been mentioned.

That would work fine. What won't work are narrow front fenders and a wide front bumper, or vice versa.

Oh sure you can do a wide body conversion but that wasn't your original question.

I think that was my question, not the OP. You said, "No, a ZO6 is a wide bodied car and it won't fit a narrow bodied car." What confused me, was you made it sound like the 2 cars were built on different platforms, rather than just bolt on cosmetics. I now know you just meant the Z06 bumper wouldn't fit the base car without a complete conversion!

You read way more into the answer than there was.
