34 Ford , what brand for full roller chassis?

Hey all,

Im helping a friend who has a beautiful 34 Rust free coupe that he's doing.
After looking at MII frt ends, rears & suspensions, etc. He's decided to make things simpler & get full rolling chassis. MII frt, 9" rear, brakes, suspension , frame, etc.

Im meeting him later today to go over some of his choices he's found, I know he looked at Fatman, Heigt's, etc. I know theres a few more companies making nice rollers & Id like some input suggestions of who elses people have used & liked.

He will be running a 351w & would like one that body will bolt to with out having to hack up floor in rear.

Any input appreciated.

Thanks, Jeff

I don't have direct experience with these frames. BUT you called the car in question a 34 Ford in your introduction and a 34 Chevy now - which one is it? The reason I thought to ask is that your friend wants to put a Ford engine in it. Not to many 351W going into 34 Chevies.

Total Cost Involved makes a good product, but their customer service is less that great. SAC has been making frames for many years, they have a good product also.

Is he going to use his old frame? You mentioned heidts and fatman..those guys make only MII front ends.


Almost fergot about the rod factory

That ought to keep you busy for a while
Later, mikey

I haven't used any of these but have been looking at Outlaw

http://www.outlawrods.com/index2.html

They are just outside Pitts Pa and might be close enough to take a drive there.

The Roadster Shop built my rolling chassis and I am very impressed with it. Heidts Super Ride IFS, Ford 9" chrome 4 bar, Wilwood disk brakes all around. They had a great display at Louisville last year and I got to talk at length with a few of the guys about their chassis and the quality problems with Gibbon bodies.
