Have any one came to you for making a chassis for a g-body car?

We have had several people ask about a G body chassis, but haven't had anyone seriously step up to the plate yet. If you are interested, we can build you one as a custom chassis.

Can you describe the details on the Mopar E body chassis please?

Is the design like the Schwartz chassis where the body sits on the frame with minor cutting of the unibody?

Photos would be nice!

Beautiful pieces.

thanks
Darren

If I had the money, I will be all over it.

Thanks. We are just finishing 2 chassis for 70 Challengers right now. I will start a new thread on them next week when they are completed. It is a true full chassis design, unlike others that you have mentioned. We did not see that you could gain any additional strength going that route. It also leaves the car sitting rather high for our liking. Our chassis will require cutting the passenger floor out of the car, but we have deigned an angled inside frame rail and dropped center crossmember that allows you to build a drop floor in the car since these are tight on head room.

Van, tempting.... but we are gonna have to pass. We currently have a 69 in the shop tht we are starting a full build for a local customer using this set up, and we will be building a 70 very shortly.

Default Irs

Great looking setup, any pricing worked out yet.
I'de like to run the IRS in one of your Fast Track frames to suit Gen 1 68 Camaro.

Any ideas on how much metal work will need to be done in the rear seat and trunk area.

Great work as always.

John

Thanks John!

On the Chevelle, all that was needed was to extend the section of the floor above the rear end back a few inches before dropping off to form the trunk well. It appears that a Camaro will need the same modification.

This was a pretty simple sheet metal filler piece we made. The additional room is actually only needed for frame rail clearance.
