Default 1932 Chevy sedan, chop, channel, corvette

Hey guys, here is what I'm building, I started with a 32 sedan I picked out of San tan valley, got it for 300 bucks, rough but little hammer and dolly work, so steel; good as new. Got it off the trailer, on a dolly, chopped it 6", got doors swinging wrong ways. I decided to put the body over the drivetrain out of a 99 6spd corvette. One to be different and fast and another because my grandfather was the chief drivetrain engineer for the creation of the corvette in 53' until 78'.

Let me know what ya guys think, the beauty of the drive train is the torque tube I have more foot space than I know what to do with! It's only 5" diameter

Another curious part of the car, the driver door has bullet holes and center of the rear of the car has a nice pattern. I'm sure this car has a story.

Great body work. The running gear is cool because it is different. It will be interesting to see how the engine/front end looks when it is finished. So far so good.

Thanks guys, I wish I spent a little more time on the b pillars but I'm happy with it. First time with any extensive body work/chopping so I'm happy. The front kinda scares me right now the rails will be a little further apart than normal/what I like. Might look into a English wheel and make my own grill shell that fit the space a little better.

Ya, those hinges look higher end and better made than what I've seen.

I got everything from air bag it here in az, 200 for hinges and mini bear claws with install kits, they work pretty good the doors are loading them real hard because I have no b pillar support. If I hold the door up and open they work awesome, hinges are nice they have brass bushings and all, I tightened them up a touch to take what little slop they had out, my only complaint is the box size, the b pillar I out in is 1x2 and they stick out pretty far when closed, i got a couple ideas to hide them
