ABSTRACT
The article focuses on how Jason Petts built his 1955 Chevrolet Sports Coupe into a show car. To finance the new build he sold off all the parts that would be taken out. Work began with the body lifted off the chassis so that Corvette suspension could be grafted on fore and aft. Extra work went into fitting a large X-shaped crossmember into the centre of the chassis, which the exhaust and tailshaft run through.
