Christmas Custom - '69 Corvette

I’ve got a friend that along with his father and brother are part of a race team. They run 4 cars. For a gift last year, I built a clone of their ‘70 240Z.

This year, I was asked to build two identical cars - a clone of their ‘69 Corvette. Here’s a few progress pics and how it turned out in the end.
