The car was built on a “Paul Newman Car Creations” modified Chevrolet chassis with the original frame stretched 10 inches to sit on the custom chassis with the independent rear suspension and differential from a low-mileage 1996 Corvettes.

Body modifications were done to include the 10-inch stretch and feature  rear quarterpanels from a 1957 Cadillac and a Cadillac rear window.
