Wow John!...I didn't mean to upset you....so clearly they used a C4 LT1 motor
but also clearly they used a parts from a C5 body.

Those are C5 wheels and brakes, but they used a C4 chassis.

The interior looks mostly C4. but the lower part of the front fenders are C5. The flip up hood and upper front fenders are obviously C4

The thing that puzzles me most about this rabid mutt mix is that they used parts of C5 outer door shells, but the door panels are C4. I suspect the outer door shells are both a C4 and C5 mix. They wanted a C5 look, but C5 doors don't just slap onto a C4 body, so they did some cutting and used a lot of bondo.

I don't know why they would skimp out and use an LT1, after using the C5 body parts.

If you had the link posted earlier, I would have SEEN that it was heavy on C4.
