Post Corvette tilt front end?

Ecklers used to make a one piece tilt front end for 68-82 corvette, but they don't make it any more and I want one. Anybody know of a company that manufactures a tilt front end for a vette? I've benn searchin for a year now and have found front ends for ever thing else but no dice finding the one that will fit my 75 Stingray

Check in this website's list of vendors for bodyparts, there was some fiberglass vendor from California that had the one piece front end, if I remember correctly. Although it may have been for a Mako shark conversion kit.

What year is your Vette? I have a 69 I'm bringing up to 1970 F.I.A. spec. It's only a replica of the classic L-88 racers, but it's still really fun. The 350 gives me decent fuel mileage too (not to mention that recent college graduates often have trouble funding something like an L-88).

Cheers!

showcars bodyparts apparently still sells the fiberglass, not sure about the brackets and stuff. I heard some bad things about that company when it comes to quality and customer service but it may be the last chance to get what you want.
