Tube Chassis For A 57 Fairlane

THIS IS ONE THAT I DID OVER THE WINTER. AS YOU CAN SEE THE FRONT SUSPENSION IS FROM A WINSTON CUP CAR.



THE FRONT SPINDLES ARE FROM A 78 T-BIRD. THAT IS ALL I SIGNED ON TO DO. I HEARD IT IS GETTING A VERY VERY BIG BLOCK. THE REAR TIRES ARE MICKEY 19.5"

Nice work! That's all scratch-built?

NICE CRAFTSMANSHIP!

You say WINSTON suspension, I see the tubular A-arms and what appears to be a jack. What type of steering box is going to be used?

I built it from scratch. except the front end of course. The guy who owns the car put a winston cup car steering box on it (GM style). Yeah it has the screw jacks. I have put a rack & pinion on them before, it's pretty trick.

Hmm...

Let me ask you a question while I have you here. Can you duplicate a 57 frame for a modified FORD front suspension/steering and four link in the rear? Do you have a jig or do you need the body?

And about how much?

I Can Duplicate The Frame, But I Prefer To Have A Body. This Way I Can Set Up The Tire Side Wall To Body Spacing Ride Height Stuff Like That. If You Look At The Frame You Will See That A Person Wanted To They Could Run The Exhaust Over The Rear End And Out The Back. Hell I Go To The Muffler Shop And Get One Of The Guys To Come Over To Make Sure The Frame Has The Room He Needs To Do His Job. I Hate Pro Street Cars Were The Pipes Come Out In Front Of The Rear Tire. If You Have Any Questions Call Me 980 521 0175 Or You Can Nextel Me 150*24*40154
