This a project that I and my uncle Roy Curl conceived to build for his personal once in a lifetime build. Sadly he passed before we got to finish so I and a friend Russ Eells  have dedicated to finishing his project the way he wanted it. He always wanted a cameo after discussing body styles we settled on the 1969. He wanted to build a great handling car so I suggested doing corvette C5/C6 suspension. We started buy ordering a Morrison max-g chassis they setup the front with C5 and we customized the rear section to fit our build plans. He didn’t want to use the rear mounted transmission because he didn’t want to lose to much of the rear seat area so we went with 9” independent center section and use a front mounted tremic 6  Spd with a center-force dual disk clutch to hold the 750+hp from the LSX b15  with twin STS turbos. Plans for the car are to be at SEMA 2020 and tour the 2020 west coast indoor shows. Would like to get an invite to the 2020 Las Vegas optima challenge. Stay tuned or updates.
