Sanders Street Rods 59 Corvette - Art Morrison
Josh Sanders of Sanders Street Rods has built an incredible car and was considered for the prestigious “Battle of the Builders at this year’s SEMA Show. The talented young fabricator, at 24 years old used an Art Morrison Corvette C1 Chassis with Morrison IFS and MultiLink IRS as the platform for this build.
The other parts used in this car’s construction reads like the who’s who of the automotive aftermarket:
- Wilwood brakes: 14″ rotors should stop this car on a dime. We almost exclusively use Wilwood products on all our projects.
- Classic Instruments: Classic instruments gauges are one of the highest quality gauges you can get and there direct fit series made it the obvious choice. We were able to customize them and even order a matching three gauge set for the engine bay which I will go over later. The electronic gauges will pair with the outputs from the ECU of the LS7 to give a modern style gauges with the classic look.
- Chevrolet performance: The LS7, T56 Transmission and ECU all work together so well with the chassis and produce a consistent powerful drivetrain. They make the ECU very user friendly and easy to hook up with a basic understanding of engine electrical. We have used the LS7 on other projects and after tuning they produce over 600HP… plenty for this little car. 600HP and a 6 speed will make banging through these gears an absolute blast. The chassis and the drivetrain make or break a build like this and no expenses were spared to make sure they seamlessly work together.
- Modern Driveline: Supplied the clutch components and knowledge to make marrying the engine and transmission smooth. They have supplied us with many transmission parts and the know-how on this project and many others. They machine their own adapters for using a modern slave cylinder for the aftermarket transmissions.
