Body Off Frame Refurbishment

The UK's original body off specialist

Some Corvette chassis are starting to give serious problems. A corroded chassis can be the root cause of many headaches for the Corvette owner. If the handling of your car is poor, if the rear end feels unstable, even if you feel this is the only area that lets your car down cosmetically, body off is the way to go.

However, it’s not just a corroded or damaged chassis that can give problems, worn or non-existent bushings, corroded fuel and brake lines…when did you last look under your car?

Whilst we can give you a good idea of what to expect before the body is lifted, It is not possible to give a firm price in advance for this work because we won’t know the full state of the chassis until the body has been lifted. Our starting price of £3000 plus VAT includes the following basic work:

  • Separate the body from the frame
  • Remove engine and transmission
  • Clean and prepare all suspension and chassis components in situ
  • Respray in satin black and reassemble
  • Full video record of each stage

Additional work that is often required, and at additional cost can include some or all of the following:

  • Full disassembly and sandblasting of the chassis and components
  • Welding to repair rust damage to the chassis and/or birdcage
  • Suspension re-bushing
  • Suspension rebuilds/modifications/upgrades
  • Replacing U-Joints
  • Replacing differential yokes/gaskets/seals
  • Replacing fuel and brake lines
  • Engine and transmission rebuilds/upgrades
  • Respraying engine bay and underside of body
  • Chassis rustproofing
  • Other detail work

It is extremely cost effective at this time to consider any upgrades, transmission conversions, power or rack and pinion steering and disk brake conversions etc.

As well as being the answer for those cars with chassis corrosion and component wear, it is also ideal for the Corvette owner who would like the satisfaction of knowing the chassis and drivetrain are finished to the same standard as the rest of the car.

This offer applies to Corvettes between 1956-1972. For 1973-1982 cars the removal and refit of front and rear bumpers will incur extra cost.

Benefits of chassis refurbishment:

Longer chassis life 

Rust prevention and repair

Improved handling  and extended tyre life 

Cosmetic improvement
