Can you say headache and major problems and tons of money? To answer your question, yes it is possible. The above Corvettes are either on newer factory frames or custom frames with custom made bodies to fit the frames.

The cars above are newer vettes with a redesigned body. Classic looks and styling with modern performance, reliablity, comfort, ect.

Some companies that build the aftermarket old/new Corvettes use a custom built tube frame. Most use newer factory Corvette frames and the custom made bodies. Oh man, boys and their toys.
