Yes I built the frame. I am a bit too old to make any more for other people LOL.I got my measurements off the exhisting sub frames and made it fit the 34. I owned a wheel alignment and frame shop, so it was what I knew best.I would do it a bit different now that it is done. The car is running and handles like a slot car. The 6 speed auto is great. here are some more pics

Great job !! If you have any other pictures to show I'd like to see them. Did you have to change the width of the Corvette drivetrain ?

34 ford with corvette drivetrain

Thanks!
It was a fairly easy job using the COMPLETE roller. I have lots of pics.I can send you some if you want to know any special areas. I didnt change a thing on the roller It is a complete corvette( radiator to tail pipes). well the radiator is different but the tail pipes are there as well as the cat convertor i used the corvette wireing and computer and it even shifts off the steering wheel
I also used the sub frames for the suspension. Emergency brake too. glenn

Thanks for the pictures. There has to be much more to it than just rolling the Vette under the 34. If it were that easy, everyone would do it. You've done a Great Job. Keep posting your progress pictures for us.

Thanks

What made it easy, or easier was I made a gizmo that held the whole 34 body in the air above the roller with 4 screw jacks so I could lower it down get a measurement raise it up and weld. It was on wheels so I could raise it and roll the body away. Took me a week to make it but man it was worth it Pics Notice there is no frame under the car. I could leave it for a week and it would be right where I left it.
