A custom chassis was built in order to graft the chopped sedan body to the Corvette underpinnings. The side effect of that low-riding solution is that the driver is now sitting next to the car’s torque tube, with the short-throw Hurst shifter resting right on top.
It’s a cool barebones look, exemplified by the spartan interior and simple brown leather seats, though peak under the chassis and there is a fire-suppression system tucked away.
All in all, modern rat rods have tended to become fairly formulaic. This ’32 sedan may not reinvent the wheel, but it certainly breaks the mold in a big way.
