This is the first time we've done a project like this, so I thought I'd share. This build will only contain the body of a 1960 Sprite... that's slightly modified.
Almost everything else is all custom. Here is our story. We do engineering design and fab work for the off-road industry. Our neighbor has been getting into the restomod world. His friend had a 1960 Bugeye Sprite out rotting in a field. He found a buyer that wanted to stuff a small block V8 under the hood and sent him to my neighbor for the updates. My neighbor put his foot down, and said we wouldn't feel comfortable putting that much power into a vehicle with minimal chassis, suspension, and brakes. I was called,and from there everything spiraled wildly out of control and the Frogette was born. Full custom chassis and suspension with a Sprite body set on top was the verdict. We're a ways into this, so lets catch up.
Had the body dipped. Luckily some clean metal underneath.
Upper control arm CAD.
Lower control arm CAD and rendering.
Laser cut and welded up.
