I've seen one or two that I can remember. From what I gather the stock frame was cut out completely and a new frame fab'd to work with the IFS. I'm sure there's at least on this site

I have a 65 van with a c-4 corvette frame under it. Still working on it. It Can be done. Shortening the wheelbase on the Corvette chassis. Cut out the doghouse split the front wheel wells cut the rear wheel wells because of the rear kick up and have kept the stock floor in the rear. Corvette frame sits right inside the rockers have to cut out a couple pieces of the stock unibody frame to make it work.

Frank Costa put a C5 corvette suspension under his 65, Number 9. So far this is the only one I have personally seen finished and driving.
