Young gun builder Nick Weber is no stranger to the Chevy community. Over the last couple of years he’s created an array of wild builds, all featuring big-block Bowtie power under the hood. Nick’s new project doesn’t stray far from his roots and many say that this particular ride might be his finest creation yet.
After putting together some groundbreaking rides, including a wild ’46 pickup and a low-slung unibody Chevelle, Nick re-grouped and came up with a design for the ages. Starting with nothing more than a beat-up 1960 Vette body and his one-bay garage, he created his own tube chassis, welding together a myriad of lengths of 1.75 DOM steel tubing to fit around the modified Vette body.
Features include a C6 Z06 front end with a kick-ass steering rack and reworked geometry, while the rear is a custom independent five-link with a HammerHead aluminum 12-bolt centersection. Knowing he wanted to autocross the Vette, he installed AirJax air-jacks at the corners in case he needs a quick lift. Power will be supplied by a twin-turbo motivated LS3. Yeah, it’s not a big-block, but the weight savings will help this fiberglass Vette rocket around the track like it’s on rails.
We don’t want to give it all away here, and believe us there’s more in store for this black beauty. Stay tuned here for updates and a future feature on the Super Chevy Network.
