Project Redemption started as an overpriced, underrepresented ebay find. It was supposed to be a real ’68 Z28 but the 302 is out of another Z and the protecto-plate is long gone…so instead of a 100 point restoration, we are doing the next best thing- cutting it up!
The build is based around the idea that a guy walks into a Chevy dealership in ’68 to buy a Z28 to go weekend racing. He loves to see the Trans-Am racing heros flogging thier cars but needs to keep his on the street for daily transportation – with a twist – he has acess to 2010 technology!
Everything Speedtech offers for a first gen will be installed. Both front and rear suspension systems, headers, body mounts, etc. Jason Rushforth will supply the wheels and rendering, We are installing DSE deep-tubs. Engine and trans will be an LS2 and T-56.
Ebay buyers beware…lots of stuff was hidden, when we got the car back from media we ended up needing a whole new front clip, deck lid, pass door and both quarters. We a just putting the finishing touches on sheet metal install. CHC had to replace everything but the driver’s door and roof.
