For Sale: GT1 C5 Corvette





Took the car out and took some better pictures.
The front tire gap is because the front spring adjusters are adjusted too far.

C5 Corvette GT1 tube frame car.
ACP C5 bodywork mounted on frame, including front and rear lexan. Hood louvers seamlessly molded in. Probably one of the few surviving unmodified ACP C5's that still have the spoiler/ kickout behind the rear tires that were protested in Trans Am and not on later versions. Body (fiberglass) has never been on the track and is in excellent condition, primed and unpainted. Front clip pins/ bolts on to frame. NASCAR style door bars on both sides. No logbooks, it has never raced in this configuration.
It is a Creative Motorsports frame that was powdercoated. 4-link rear-end connected to a Franklin quick-change w/ Wide 5 hubs, no axles or driveshaft.
A-arm front suspension, Sweet manual rack, Coleman spindles w/ Wilwood Wide 5 hubs.
It comes with Lockheed/ AP 4 piston calipers for all 4 corners. The rear axle has mounts for the calipers but the front spindles do not. They are older calipers but appear in good shape and pads are still available. It has a set of new 13" rotors at all 4 corners.
I have redone/ redesigned the interior sheet metal and firewall, it's mostly all new save for a few pieces.
It comes with a 355ci dry sump motor that had been refreshed. I have taken it mostly apart and found all new pieces in there including; pistons, rods, camshaft, roller timing chain, and lifters. The crank is 4340 and looks to be a nice piece. Supposed to be 11:1 CR. Has "292" casting iron turbo heads that have been extremely opened up/ epoxied. Edelbrock Victor Jr intake. Fluidampr harmonic balancer. No brackets, oil pump, distributor, carb etc.
The exhaust is complete. I started w/ Schoenfeld crossover headers and modifed them to a 2 into 1 into a Dynomax 5" muffler on a pass side exit.
It has a Rankin 4-spd that is currently not complete. It appears all the gears and major components are there, but it is lacking reverse. Gears were supposedly polished and do look that way. No major glaring issues otherwise. Long rail shifter comes with. C&R South has parts for the Rankin.
Comes with lots of good pieces as well as a brand new Kirky seat and cover, 2 new Obergs, some gauges, etc.
I've already done a lot of the hardwork on the car but it still needs a lot of parts. Fuel cell, pumps and lines, brake lines, calipers mounted, engine accessories.

Selling due to personal reasons, got in a little over my head not with the completion of the vehicle but money to do so and bad timing(big surprise). I'm more than happy to show it or talk about it. Everything I have done to it since I got it has been photographed and I have all of my receipts.
Looking for $25k as package OBO, I have no desire to sell pieces seperately.
I'd also entertain the idea of completing it prior to delivery for a negotiable amount. I'd do the majority of the work w/ Riggins doing the caliper mounting, initial setup, and a few other items I don't have the equipment for.
Car is located in Middleburg, FL.
More pics available at but some of the recent work has not been updated yet.
