Re: 59 Apache/C6 Corvette build

We added 1.5" and it looks very stock to the naked eye. I needed the room for the factory offset Corvette wheel. I was able to get a p355 tire on the 19x12.

Re: 59 Apache/C6 Corvette build

Getting bed floor situated. Need a 4" floor lift and decided to have a tilt up floor.
I had my old tailgate and thought the script would look good on the back of the floor lift.

Mar-k. Very nice quality. The whole bed is from them.
The tailgate has two bear claw latches and works smooth.
