Lil John Buttera built a prize winning shoebox nova with then-new C4 vette suspension and drivetrain. Yes it can be done to varying degrees. If your vette has the L98 aluminum headed TPI motor; it makes plenty of low end grunt to drive a truck. That 700r4 (Im assuming you don't have the god forsaken Nash 4+3) can be made to be bulletproof for a couple hundred bucks (if your donor is pre-1987 you'll want to upgrade the trans to post-87 specs. I bet you could even repurpose the bucket seats if you got creative enough.
