1933 Ford Frame

I have a question? I am looking to get ideas on building a 33 ford pickup. I am wondering when every car I see is being boxed why dont they box the center c crossmember? Any reason or can it be done?

You can do it but it does not really need it.

Thought it would help make it stiffer. I gues I have some thinking to do and see if I will do it when the time comes.

The maiin reason for boxing in the rails is to reduce frameflex under load or torque conditions. the frame is long and narrow so they tend to twist under extereme load. The cross section is very short and the flex is minimal. its ok to have a little flex , that keeps stress cracking to a minium.

The second reason for boxing is for looks. If you like the look, go for it! good luck.
